Week 4

Well it’s rolling (literally) again after we had to take a 1 week break from the new truck to focus on the Silverstate 300. I worked on it Sunday for 6 hours, replacing A arms and making ride height spacers that fit in the shock mounts.

Monday I ordered wheel bearings and races from the new ORW, Temecula. Also, I went down to Kartek and spoke with Mike about the other missing hub parts. He called Dave Clark, the builder to get the right answers. He also told Dave about our purchase and that I would like to meet him, I spoke with Dave briefly, about 5 minutes and my first impression was that he is a very smart and nice guy. He is willing to get us going in the right direction and would be excited to see the truck finished. We are taking the truck over to Frank Nye’s shop next week to meet with Dave Clark.

Currently, we have our best mechanics working on the truck…
