This site is for everyone

I think we have have to remember this site is for everyone. We are not all experts, we have not all been in this hobby as long as others. We are all not know-it-all's. The whole point is to help each other, to share, and to fluff our feathers a little. We don't need to get mad, angry or be afraid to post because we are afraid someone will jump on our A**. We should not think we are asking a stupid question. There are no stupid questions! This site is for everyone, to ask, to answer, and to tell, but not to act like we are too bothered to help. If you don't like what you read don't reply. It's that simple.

For you newcomers and first time posters, don't be intimated. Some of us will do our best to help and welcome you.

That should do it. A wonderful ride! I like the catch cans. Very professional. Back in the day, we used to use maple syrup cans and the like!
I raced a 101 1300 Veloce spider in the early '60's. It was a winner with no engine issues. Today I often wonder why more racers don't run the better 105 1300. I may just have to build one for my son. The 1300 with all top end hp, and little low end torque, makes for a very nice race engine. You never torque yourself into trouble, and with the weight of the cars, you can easily haul your self down from that lovely 7500rpm 1300 engine sound when necessary!

750 Sprint pics needed

Could someone post a close up of the hood support arm and hinges on a 750 Sprint? Both at the body mount and the hood mount. Can't seem to find any that show what I need! I'll post a pic of my engine soon, its kinda the other end of the spectrum here.

Good timing! I have the support, but was just trying to figure out the body hinge configuration.
