    Finally got to test drive the new cars, and what a blast. It was well worth all the time and work.
    They are bare metal yet, and need powder coat and body panels, but we are real happy with how they perform.
    I did already smoke the clutch on mine though. Any advise on clutch setup or replacement clutch kits for the GSXR 600 would be great.

    We are now going to tear them completely down (sucks) to powder coat and finalize everything , body panels,and window nets,,,,and try to be ready for a test and tune day on May 14.
    It is going to be close.

    Later

    Ok, this is my 1st attempt to post a video.

    It was taken with a digital cam, so it is kind of grainy

    Where do I sign up for one? That thing is just sweet, make sure you let me know how it goes against the Pilots at Bobs and don't forget your video camera either.

    Thanks, I just got the roll cage back from powder coat today.....sweet.

    We are going to test and race and just play this summer,,then I may make any needed changes to the design.

    We may kick out another roll cage for someone, and finish the plans at the same time,,,,to make sure that they cover everything.

    Maybe this fall.

    No, they bumped it up by $140. I was not real thrilled with that. They did a pretty good job, but there are a hand full of flaws. But there always is.

    $480 to get the roll cage done in one color, and the A arms and some Misc pcs are another color.
