Thanks. The two main tracks are both about 500 kms from here, north to IHRA Meremere and south to NZDRA Masterton Motorplex. I am currently building another tail section, this will be the third version. Trying to get it right.

Looks really swoopy. Will the chute pack be contained inside?

The chute fits just inside. This is a picture of the last version. Kind of boxy

You must have awfully high standards - the last version looks nice to me.

Happy new year to all.
Progress has been ok. The car has a few runs on it now and everything has been working well. It goes straight, and, with the 360 SBC, has done 8.65 at 153. At the moment we are fitting the Ford FE engine.
