Hi Cliff!
I'm sorry I missed you at Fondy.

Leo,
It was a pleasure to pit with you at Fond Du Lac!
Thank you for the kind words and being ready to provide support. I'm repairing Lizzie-2 for the next event.

Back in the saddle again!

FEDEX just delivered my repaired FG60-R3 and I'm almost ready to fly "The Sequel". I've added my MRS Exhaust Collector Ring and it still fits under the shortened cowl!

Special thanks to Leo...
