  • Time For THIS Post!!

    Who's ready for the June ECTA meet? Registration in, car ready, etc?

    I have my registration in and a room booked (including the one on the way there). I DO have to get Mutt on the hoist and fix the screw-up I did when I forgot to pull the air dam before pulling him on the trailer (it was cold and rainy and I was frazzled and, and....). It was a dumb mistake but fixable so I gotta fix it or run w/o air dam which I will try at some point but not yet. He also needs 30 more clicks on the boost controller but that's easy.

    Hope to see y'all there!

          I'll be there as well Dan. Got a lot of good info making some shakedown runs in the Breaking Wind Firebird and looking forward to putting the coals to it!

            Excellent! I LOVE the name. I have issues with that but the unpadded seat makes it less of a fire risk!

            See you there.

              I just received the Email with the inspection form, schedule, and access map (we can't use the main access due to a car show). I downloaded them to "Preview" and printed them from there and it worked flawlessly.

                Me me me. We won't know until tomorrow evening if I'll bring Bluebelle or Red (Bluebelle on the dyno tomorrow for a fix and a tune, fingers crossed).

                  I leave tomorrow AM so I'll load up today with enough stuff to sink a battleship. ME will meet me in Detroit following the meet so I'll have all kinds of stuff for her and The Grandboys as well as my stuff (racing suit, jack, etc.) so poor truck will have his bed full of it all. See you there!

                      Red. Dyno Man couldn't fix Bluebelle today. Her ECU is corrupted, probably from all the tunes I've put on her. She'll have to go to the Ford dealership to get re-flashed.

                      So Red and I are positioned in Blytheville waiting to go through tech tomorrow. If I could drive today instead of tomorrow.....today.

                          Red and I have everything we need to pass tech for 150, I think. IF the installed 5 point harness counts. Tech will be interesting. Very.

                          I was totally bent on bringing Bluebelle because that's just silly fun, she goes faster than she's supposed to go (if she'll run and she won't right now). Red will go lots faster than that, if they'll let him. Film at eleven tomorrow regarding tech clearance, and it's fun no matter what. Boy oh man it's gonna be hot Saturday, 94 degrees on airport concrete.
