    Just sharing some pics of our current project.

    Small 2 seat kids cars with 6.5 hp engines

    Chassis is 1" tubing
    swing arm rear suspension
    single a arm front suspension

    Progress may be alittle slow on these, as we are busy right now.
    But the goal is to have 4 of these made by spring. 2 for my kids & 2 for (protolite31) my brother Dan's kids.

    Bob's family raceway had a kids race last summer, and he say's he will continue this coming season.
    If not, *they will race on our test track at my place,,,,,,and we will grill out and have beers

    We are trying to keep the same style as "Dad's" race cars for them.

    They are quite excited, and it will be great watching them have some fun too.

    you won that one fair and square.....[smilie=cry_like_baby.gif]



    what kind of drive are you gonna use........centrifugal clutch..cvt? *What are the cockpit dimensions.......ie age/size of the pilots.

    looks like one of your big frames smashed together to be about 4 feet shorter.

    Sorry about getting off topic there, Jody. * *

    How's the hand???

    Cool looking frame - I take it this is what you and Dan were telling us about at lunch that afternoon in MI?

    Do you plan on doing the same sort of removable power pod like you have in the Big Proto cars?

    Keep the build logged - it will be very interesting to watch these come to life.

    I'm looking forward to rubbing nerf bars w/you this year! *(as soon as I make a set for my car... * )
