  • Drags at South Bend?

    I actually reserved a room in South Bend for the International Meet already. I am never, never this early at doing anything. I was looking at the activities/tours/etc. available at the International Meet and was wondering if anybody knows about drag races (I know they are unofficial) at this year's meet. I wouldn't want to schedule something that might interfer with that.

        Who'll help me swap in a prepared rear for the track while I'm there? 3.31 for the road - 4.27 for the strip?[}]

        No deceptive flags to prove I'm patriotic - no biblical BS to impress - just ME and Studebakers - as it should be.

            Hey Bob, how did you find a 3.31 gear set for your truck ? I need gears for the Caddy powered truck I'm doing, and 4:56 with the Caddy would be fun for a few seconds at best.

                    I'll hep' ya Bob. If I drive the Hawk, it's got a 3:31 open, wide ratio 4 speed and I'm racin' it anyway [}]. If I bring the Starliner, it will be on a trailer and I'll have put a 4:55 TT in it by then.

                        Slightly off topic, but for logistical reasons I plan to bring a horse drawn Studebaker. I see that I can't get on the proving grounds without a Stude (I suspect they mean a powered vehicle). Anyone I can catch a lift with on Saturday?

                            I suspect, StudeBob, that you will have to beat off volunteers with an axle shaft.
