    They have 93/100/110 at the course. I normally fill up and then drive the 30 miles or so to the track. Maybe filling up in town at the track will be enough to get those few minutes in. We'll see. The starvation starts to happen with 1/4 left in the tank.

    Great work!

    Tire looks a bit well-done -- any drop-off in traction?

    I'd recommend a trailer hitch and a small trailer to carry gas, tires, and some spare tools.

    Wonder how many gallons of gas I can buy from the track pump using the funds saved from not buying a trailer for a Mustang to pull.

    Best guess is about 60 to 80.

    Don't forget it needs to be titled, PennDOT needs their share.

    This car is my track toy. If I can no longer run what I've brung, in this case, time to sell. I'm not doing the tow vehicle thing until I have a caged car.

    I don't know PENN DOT rules, but in moSt states registering a trailer is only a few bucks a year, so that's included in my $240 HF trailer plus $140 receiver plus one year's registration number netting 80 gallons of $5/gallon gas. Numbers are clearly rounded, but reasonably close.

    Scope Creep. The car already is what I want it to be, tweaks from here on out. Something like that would create a burden and kill the hobby for me.

    Of course. It's your hobby, I was just answering the question.
