Congratulations Sergio! That is one bad-ass SUPER Cobra. It was nice to finally meet you and several others that we have corresponded with on this outrageous forum.
Because we are so new, with our build just getting under way, we had nothing to bring. But our goal for next year's event is to have a substantially complete go-cart at the show. The fact that David Hodgkins' go-cart was the only one there was kind of disappointing. It's actually a crowd-pleaser to see what these things look like without the body on; particularly for those of us just getting underway.
But, what a great event. We had a ball. The weather was perfect. And the Beach Boys sounded just like they did 40 years ago. Oh, that's right. Those were 40-year old recordings. Kowabunga dude! Surf's up!!
