All the little things add up to a mountain of time.. Little bits at a time.

Lots of progress the last few days. We are just about ready to fire it up and hopefully drive it down the alley.

Joe and Adam are working on it today. Fingers crossed!

Adam sent a second video yesterday of him driving ToadRacer down the alley. :mrgreen:

He said it drives like a bus...

Joe said the engine seems good. It appears to have been gone through, nice clean valvetrain, tight timing chain, shims under the valve springs.

More to follow...

Yeah,... He’s just trying to get me to steal the 16:1 box out of the Dart... :roll:

His daily driver is a E250 van! :lol:

Spoke with Adam on the phone. Best guy ever.

I think we are good to go w/o fast ratio box and we should focus on other optimizing. Look fwd to further test drive reports. I am ready to pull the trigger on fees now, so please advise by email/phone/text, Rob! I assume you got my previous text about this.

Let the lemon juice rain, toadies!
