New AI car is coming...

I've been talking with Jim Pantas today and I think I have found my next race car. I'll submit pictures later.

I've already called Griggs and spent some money!

I keep telling John to think how much faster he would be if he had Griggs stuff!

Griggs has been pretty good to me and I think I had a pretty darn fast car before, so I may as well stick with what I know works. Like I told somebody on Sunday though... if somebody came up to me and "forced" me to run MM stuff, I wouldn't mind one bit.

I just went to the "supermarket" and the cage tubing will be in on Thursday. Jimmy and I will be stripping what's left to be stripped out of the car this weekend, then I'll start with the Frame kit and cage on the following weekend.

I've got some really good ideas on the cage using a bunch of ideas from other AI cages. Should be pretty cool when done.

I also have been talking with Kevin McEvoy here in Columbia that will be doing the painting for me. I won't say what color it will be, but it won't be Yellow.

Tom-I wish I hadn't been so busy on Saturday with all the NASA stuff, I would really like to meet you. I see your posts on the board enough, but it looks like I will be able to meet you pretty soon.

Now, to the car...it looks a little rough, but I'm sure it will look good. Paint it bright like Hoover...so we can keep up with all the blurred paint jobs flying by!!!!!

John-Your car will look even better on a sunny day! haha

Congrats Tom and I look forward to meeting you. I'll be at every event with NASA-Va, its tough being an intern you know

Dave

Hey Dave. I'm sure the car will be seen pretty well. I was e-mailing the guy that's painting it and he says he's got just the right color for it. I told him the requirement is to be able to see the glow before the car comes around the corner.

As far as the shape of the car, the guy I'm buying it from says the car is straight. As long as I've got that, everything should be a cool from that point.

Anyway, I look forward to meeting you as well. I'm going to try to make most of the AI races except for Beaverun so I'll probably see you soon.
