Re: WTB: Big ol' wings

I have a 16" cord ex-Staudacher wing. I don't recall the length, but it'll be in the neighborhood of 65-68" - will need mounts fabricated, plus one small spot of damage (about thumbnail sized) punch-through on one side. Will also need endplates, though those are easy enough to make - or mount it by ...

Very long saga behind this, but boils down to - SFI is there to generate money, to protect its members (which are the safety gear manufacturers) - not racers. Even the FIA knows they don't need recert unless "used." Notice how SFI belts only last 3 years? Which is good, they can price themselves out...

Just checking out the webcam live, and... yeah.

Each track map is made from the pavement millings of that particular turn on a wood base from a Turn One tree. We also have 2 core samples of the new track base.

Amusing, scrolling through we see so many names of retired racers or parents of current racers... then we get to FV...
