    sounds like fun. what engine are you running and how fast do you get going. i assume going around corners is a bit hairy. (y)

    I have a 302 with 289 ho heads on it. We get up to about 80 mph depending on track size of course. Traction is no problem, the tires have 68 stud in them 1 inch in length as sharp as a knife.
