      My buddy Dave painted these nice 917-30 tributes for me recently.  Since bodies are like tires in Flexi racing – these gorgeous prototypes will lead to me buying a fleet of replacements this year (one spectacular crash can basically doom the body by the end of the Heat; altho normally they last about 4 to 6 weeks – a total of about 5 to 8hr MTBF)

      They include some NASCAR COTs with a Penske/Donahue flavor (do not actually match the Camaros they ran in TransAm .. but when racing at extremely fast 1-24 speeds they are Easy to See in all the mayhem – LOL).

      Plus – some Oreca-07 LMP bodies (incorrectly labeled Porsche by Dave) resembling the 917-30 Penske/Donahue Sunoco livery.  Again – they meet my requirements to be Easy to See among seven other brightly painted bodies whizzing at super-sonic speeds …

At 4-years old in Pensacola I repaired my steering linkage on my Ford Pedal-car. Dad later converted this car to a Blue Angel with ailerons and elevators with a working "stick/yoke"; the rudder was controlled by the steering wheel. I like all motorsports - I grew up going to a NASCAR Feeder track with Sportsman and Modified classes, and was lucky to attend drag races in 1970 at Orange County Raceway. My first solder-iron was a Christmas gift at 9yo; I modified T-Jets to be AFX spec before AFX Cars were in local stores. I rebuilt a few tractor & car (SIMCA) engines plus transmissions by 15yo (I still have my ring-compressor and valve spring tool) I am a former mountain and road bike geek & perennial sound engineer.
