No. I realize there may be some risk but I have a spare 26k motor. This has been the plan all along and why I didn't start with the low mileage motor. My local track sells all the different race fuels so cost is the only drawback.

Thanks, yes we run door to door but no one wants to wreck for a bowling trophy. That's one long read for one sitting. Kinda why I keep it to a pictorial. Thanks for the offer; if you were local you'd be welcome. Today we had Seth, Bobb and Anthony over to lend a hand. That's Seth cutting the lexan. Bobb hung the fenders and mounted the upper radiator support. I put the rear spoiler on and helped cut the lexan. We had three pizzas
Peperoni/ham, peperoni/halipeno, onion/shrooms. So we're having fun with it. I'm lucky to have friends with opposing opinions, car is turning out better by letting others run with their ideas.
