I'll be there, but some question on the trike going.

Anyone else going to be there?

Send me a message, and I'll give you my phone number. And either the trike will be there, or the 4 door subaru with roll cage and top chopped off.

i was there, trike was there, no one else from ecomodder came up and said hi.

we drove it around as spectators some. a LOT of pictures got taken of it. a few comments, all neutral to positive.

talked to tech. We cannot run it even if we wanted. it is not a car because it only has 3 wheels and not 4 or more. it is not a motorcycle because two of the tires are not in line.

could put "duallies" on the back and run it as a car, and build cage to match, but probably won't.

So I guess Can Am's couldn't run either? I wonder if this might be a good time to get them to start looking into a new class, especially if more three wheelers are going to start popping up? What about Blue Flame ? It was a tripod.

Glad you got her running. How's she ride?

stiff. aftermarket springs are about 4 times too high of spring rate.

and fuel injection is a bunch rich - no MAP sensor nor 02 sensor and the computer is a bit confused.

and some electrical to sort out.

but all in all, it ran.
