Tape is used on all tires that go on the vehicle in the spare location. When coming into a pit the crew should have been notified that there was a flat and a new spare is needed. In the event that radio communication is bad or down the crew only has to look at the tire for the tape, no tape car needs a tire.



Look for a full race recap and press release in the next few days. We're back in CO and going to bed.

That is BFG's new Orange Stripe Compound tire that was made specifically for #4488. It is better than the Silver Stripe Compound but not as good as the Red Stripe Compound.

Stephen has some and I have been telling him to post them up. What you see is the meat and potatos of the design. The rest of the pieces that were added just enclose the sides and keep everything from moving up and down.

This was not the cheapest route to go but my steering ram setup dictated that we had to use a knuckle with the stock ford tierod mounting location. This was the solution to the fact that nobody makes a true ford knuckle. All of the knuckles that I have seen are a chevy casting with the ford spindle pattern drilled into them.

There will probably be more later as well since the car is totally torn down for new motor and prep for KOH. We have a lot of various personal commitments through the next few months so an early start was essential.
