Tricks for improving performance, old formula* for power that he had learned drifting from shop to shop and then forgotten. To his own astonishment he be- jgan to read again. First one mag- iazine on cars that Ricky had been carrying. Then he'd ask to read ^Ricky's entire collection.

"And a high- speed rear end? Once we start, we might as well go all the way." "We wffl, we will," Merle said petulantly. "But I don't have everything we need to work with." "Well, the power end will be your department anyway," Ricky said. "I'm going to be the design boy. And I've got some designs in mind that are out of this world!"
