    Hear here!!

    Just had time to read my new Prancing Horse magazine last night, and noticed a very nice write-up and pic of Williams 512TR race car. Congrats William!

    Also please keep us posted on the upgrades you mentioned in the magazine. You mention a horsepower increase may be part of the future plan. Just curious... what modifications will be involved in order to achieve said horsepower?

    Again congrats. The car looks great.

    I thought it was great, but I kept expecting the article to end in "and I want you to allow me to participate in FCA track days and concours", but I never saw that. :)

    Next thing I need to do is find a spare transmission and rebuild it with Hewland gears & titanium shafts. Once the trans is hardened, I'll feel safer increasing the hp. I'd like to get a spare engine as well, a 512M engine that laready has titanium conn rods would be a great starting point. with an M engine we might change the pistons & cams to make it more aggressive, its already got the Motec ignition system & no cats or mufflers, She is LOUD!!! :) But she doesnt sound as mean as my friend Bob Coates BBLM. I'll have to talk to the mechanics & see what else they have in mind. I want to keep it fairly reliable bcus I dont want to break the bank on maintenance, I'd rather be driving wheels off it rather than rebuilding it all the dam time
