So this happened…we really needed this 1956 VW Bus to move on its own so we can utilize that side of the shop. Last weekend we threw a transmission into it (link: http://twolarrysracing.com/blog/?p=2455), and this weekend we threw a 1500S engine we had on a stand into it. The engine hasn’t run in about six years (came to us as just an engine), and the Bus hasn’t move on it’s own in about fifteen years. Let’s hope the transmission is actually good hahaha. No muffler on it gave a pleasant side-effect of flames and popping that we could startle the kids with. And that is always fun.
Two Larrys Racing is pleased to announce we have been working with Kenyon Whetsell of Optimized Motorsports Group to freshen up Stockbug Class 11 #1147 to prepare it for the 2016 racing season. If you would like to see photos of the build, and also updates of the installation when #1147 makes its way to TLR, please navigate the menu above at Projects > Racing Engines > Optimized Motorsports Group #1147 Engine or directly HERE.

CBCFS Racing’s 1/2 1600 buggy prepping for the 2015 Mint 400 at Two Larrys Racing. TLR rebuilt the engine and this video documents some of the prep after installation with CBCFS. It is always such a pleasure to work with this team.
Good luck at the 2015 Mint 400, CBCFS!
Over the last few weeks, we have had the honor of working with Meek Racing on freshening up #1142 and getting her ready for the 2015 season. They are pointing her towards the $10,000 bonus offered in the World Series of Bugs this year, and the first race is SNORE Battle at Primm this coming weekend. Here is some footage of testing from this last week:
We’ve been busy as usual…finishing out the summer/fall projects to welcome the fall/winter projects! Namely, we are pleased to once again be working with Meek Racing #1142 (Dave Meek) and CBCFS Racing #1116 (Paul Nauleau) to assist in their preparation for the 2015 racing season.
But to give everyone a smile on their face today, here is some video of what we did last night. Because sometimes you just need to take a donut break.
