Terry,

Try this,, right click the bar about 3 inches down the page that says
\"Click here to play video\"

A white box will open and click \"Save target as\"

another box will open up and change directories to your desktop then click \"save\"

Once the file has downloaded, click the icon on your desktop labeled

YESSS!

Thanks Larry. Brings back fond memories of my driving school days at Willow Springs. He is running the course counter clockwise which is a bit irregular but still fun. Always wanted to run the Spyder there at some time trials, but moved away before the opportunity presented itself.

Anybody know what this car was running ????

Sounds great !!! What type of engine ?? Tranny ?? Shifter ??? Exhaust ??

I would have to say that mine doesn't sound, shift or handle like the one in the video -- maybe something is wrong with mine ??? [:0] [:0]

Its most a likely a problem with the nut that is located between the seat and the stearing wheel. ;)

Hey guys, that's me driving my spyder (and actually I posted that video a while ago here :)

Anyway the car is has a 1914 blueprinted motor, stock IRS tranny, and the standard rod shift linkages with a jamar shifter. My biggest complaint about the car is definitely the shifter. The exhaust was a stainless header into a huge supertrapp with no discs in it. That header has since broken and I've gone with the standard exhaust from Thunder Ranch.

As to suspension, it's all standard except for a Z bar in the rear. Info on the car is here: www.wurthmotorsports.com

Ah, just realized why it may seem to corner better than bbgroovin is used to: it's on DOT-legal race tires. Kumho Ecsta V700's. Those do make a big difference, though the increased grip makes the car lean more...

Edit: more info: oh, and it has a cage in it, of sorts. It's the car formerly owned by Bruce L. in MA (don't remember what his handle was here).

Hey BB, just trying to provide some analytical advice. That part has been found to be faulty on most of my vehicles, including the family toboggan... ;)
