Im curious who did your new platform and if you used the same bolt holes, or how you filled the old holes if you had to. Weve been thinking of the alum. Would love to see a pic. Thanks

Interesting....

I'm not an IMP owner, but I sent a note to the site about starting an IMP forum and haven't heard anything. I suggest anyone that would like to see an IMP forum contact the administrators.

Gonna bump this for the sake of possible interest in an IMP forum. If there's not enough interest, then that's the way it goes.

just a little IMP thread...I have decided to get rid of the 1
inch spacers in my drives and search for 25p props. I am running 23p now and I am thinking the spacers may be robbing my top end? still enjoy the viper just have to get a little mored speed out of her.

Mark,

I drove through Iola a little bit this past friday night on the way to a race near Warsaw, MO. I forgot it was Lincoln Street specifically (afterthough) and didn't see the facility, but I'm gonna remember next time.

Did they build 31' Eleganzas and Vipers at this location?

Thanks!
John
