    DISCLAMIER: This is not a design by Red Neck Racing. This car was designed by a much smarter internet friend of Billy the not so dumb Red Neck. Admittedly, he states, he's probably not the 1st person with this design. So youmay have seen one before. However, he's given Billy his permission to share his design with the world. It's a GREAT Wedge option for the youngster or family that can't afford the high density weights. When done properly, this little cream puff comes in with a somewhat conservative 1" COM, 7/8" at its highest point, can have a raised axle and CAN have an extended wheel base but you must use discression up front when using as an EWB 3 wheeler, you'll run out of wood in a hurry. But here's the money shot. When you're known by Billy the not so dumb Red Neck you shouldn't be surprised to know, in his neck of the woods, where the median income is $16,807.00 below the national average. Billy's had to become extremely innovative when it comes to helping the builder on a budget. "If you've ever bent an axle using a small C clamp, drag link socket and a small cube of wood.....you might be a Red Neck" !! If you have access to a drill press and a 3/4" Forstner bit, not a spade bit but a Fostner bit, the budget builder can weight this little jewel at 5 oz using 33 pennies more or less. Mid year 1982 and older pennies tip the scales at 3.11 grams with their mid 1982 and newer light weight counterparts weigh 2.5 grams. But don't stub you toe on that one, you easily remove some wood to reach the targeted 5 oz from underneath the body using a drill, router or even sandpaper if needed but you can make it happen. 33 cent's Y'all....how cool is that !!

    The designer was also kind enough to give Billy the specs on how to build this toxic free unit. If you're interested or know a youngster that's having to pay his or her own way or anyone that's on a tight budget just shoot Billy a conversation request and he'll gladly give you the spec's using either an AWANA or BSA block.......BUT WAIT, theres more !! Here's something absolutely free. While you're going thru your change jar or whatever looking for pennies be on the look out. Most pennies are worth.......well, a penny. But if you log on to www.cointracker.com you may rip your britches when you find what some of these little copper nuggets are worth. You may very well have a small fortune in your change jar, pocket or purse.

    It don't get no better Y'all. So if you're interested, give Billy a Conversation Request for the specs. It may take awhile for him to get back with you. When he's not binge watching The Walking Dead he's always busy supervising someone on how to feed the chickens, slop the hogs and haying the cows or he may be busy boiling crawfish. Unless you're above the Mason Dixon Line y'all may know em as crawdads......It's a Southern thing.....Y'all might not understand. So Billy says, be kind to your neighbor and if it won't hurt too bad say something good about him and as always be sure to tip your waitress.......RRR 0-11.jpeg
