I flared it so I could get more rubber under the thing, in hopes to gain a little something in the corners since it is underpowered

Depending on power with a stockish 4, larger rubber is not necessarily needed. Can be a process of diminishing returns.
The Puttputt ran slightly pulled stock fenders with 7" wheels/205s and cornered with the best of them. :D
Is the "race" motor carbed or injection?

The car is SOOOOOOO close to being slightly road worthy it may make it to LPR #1. It will be an ugly duckling and probably drive like crap but I still hope it will make it.

You're so close, looks like you have time to get her road & AX worthy. Looking forward to seeing you out playing this Saturday!

Well, there was a delay and it didn't make it to the first event of the season. Looks like we are back on track and it should make it to LPR AX#2. Keep your fingers crossed. Good news is..... I drove it. It was getting dark so I drove it for two minutes so.... But, it does drive now. A few finishing touches and we are good to go.

Looks like I have a running/driving vehicle for the zone event. I'll be getting some help from Bill C. on Monday to dial some things in before the event. I'll need to plan for paint in April. Still undecided on paint colors/colors. Crud, tough decision.

Doesn't quite look like this anymore, does it.
