    Default Hunting for microknots

    Back from Reno and nothing is broken. Time to tear it all apart and get to work!

    Can't wait to see what happens! I just noticed that it probably isn't a common modification to do but it might help a lot, Tom McNerney did some work to eliminate the hinges hanging down from the wing on his Legacy. Maybe that could be in the future for you guys??

    Yes it is. If you look at old pictures showing the belly you’ll notice we’ve been removing the flap brackets. It’s a 4+ hour pain in the butt, especially on Sunday night after the banquet. Should make our lives during race week a lot better.

    Packing up my tools and headed that way this weekend to assist with the mods. After I do my post Reno maintenance on Unleashed that is. Check for anything odd, change the oil, inspect filter, yadda yadda.

    Awesome to hear! Can't wait to see how it turns out. Keep us posted

    Any recent progress on your Legacy? 2018?

    And to Thomas, is 30 going to get a new wrap for next year? Looks a little out of shape

    Looks like your recliner has a special purpose

    No new wrap, but plans are to get some fresh paint.

    Glad to share what we're working on. The team has so many cool people that pool their individual expertise to make this happen. Honestly there is never a dull month.
