It is running but far from done . My foams are lost in the mail . The wheels didn't get done in time . The cage is still in the works . I'm not sure if this project is worth all the trouble . Oh yes the tires where lost for almost 2 weeks . They showed up 16 days after they where shipped .

eh, just take it the way it is and just have some fun with it. I completely understand ( and appreciate) the effort you put into it to have it done in time for the Nats, but sometimes things just don't work out. Take your time and finish it the way you want it to be, it will be a big waste of time to slap it together then have to tear it apart and re-do major parts of it.

Well I end picking up some wheels on the way to Nationals . I also picked up a set of foams from Eddie . Got the wheels , tires and unfinished cage mounted . The cage don't like much . Got to get the wind shield finished and oh crap handles . I have ran 2 batteries thru it and it is great .

I had a blast with this rig at Nationals . But I don't have anyone to run with around here . So this rig just found a new home a mile high .
