    The Hawk Coupe LCS 2019

    Great time by all! Drank a little (ok a lot)... played a little (ok a lot).... had a little fun (ok a lot).... and did a few burnouts.... OK A LOT!!!! lol

    seriously a great time and the weather once again was perfect!

    Ran the crap out of the car - did like 5-6 full line lock burn outs down main street... always a good time...

    Really hammered out the coupe at the autox - I am getting better at handling this car after every one of these events... car handles awesome... way better than I can drive... just have to learn to trust it and me

    Anyway... here are pics of the car in action... just did the 4000 mile inspection on it... all good.... all tight... miles of smiles!!!

    Great time as always Erik and thanks for taking Nancy along for the parade into London Her two highlights of the weekend were the ride with you and the Mason jar with the peach that Garry Bopp sent home with her!

    Found myself at 2:27 making my first run driving the Backdraft (I apologized to Smith when it took FTD).

    Erik,

    Thanks for sharing this with your Forum Family.
    I loved hearing your car spool up and then hit the rev-limiter.
    From the sound if the giggles, fellows in the infield really liked it too.

    Erik,
    Watched your launches (burnouts) at LCS. You've got that dialed in.
    Great car, good show.

    yes Sir , the car is pretty much point and shoot... very solid. Amazing how stiff the frame is...yet comfortable to ride and drive.
