I was admiring some of the pics on the calvertracing.com website and seen this awesome pic of a '66 launching. Looks pretty wicked but I see a couple of potential problems. The oil pan makes it look like the engine is torqing over pretty bad and the front wheel looks crooked in the air.
You guys see anything else?

They need to chain the motor on the drivers side. The rubber motor mounts are flexing alot!
Eventually that will break the mounts without some kind of restaint.
The front wheel geometry gets all screwed up when all the weight is removed. That car would likely work better with travel limiters on the front suspension.
The slicks are pretty badly wadded up, too. A little more air pressure would help. That car looks like it could be a real bear to drive, although exciting!

Looks like he has the wheel turned to the right, could be an interesting ride when he comes back down to earth.
