That "seat" shot is pretty neat....the next shot emphathizes that the motor is offset to the passenger side as well...Cool Stuff! 8)

Tom Smith had a theory about off setting the driver and engine. I don't know if it would work, but they don't do it today or since then and this car never went straight, so I guess it kind of speaks for itself !

LOL....Guess you had to try things out to see if they worked or not....kinda like Gary Ormsby's wedge shaped t/f'r or Garlits' "Sidewinder"... We didn't have the availability of cnc programs and concept software to try different stuff out...all "let's try THIS trick" technology :wink: 8)
