Well, it has been two years almost to the day since I crashed the Torino. I'm very excited to post that last weekend, after extensive body repairs and some chassis mods, I made a return to the track. I made three passes with a best for the day of 8.40 @ 161. The wheelie bars and new tyres mean that we have some chassis tuning to do but that's all part of the fun, right?

Without a stocker to reference, I'd estimate set back to be about 9 or 10 inches
I didn't write down actual weights, but from memory it was something like 53-55%/45-47%
