  • Good to meet you guys at the salt..

    Good to meet all of ya.

    The Black Opel gang ended up heading home on Friday after setting a new best for the car with only 3 tune up passes on the DOHC Vortec inline 6 @ 189.80 at the 2 1/4 and over 190 out the end of the 3rd on the short course. One thing for sure is that engine likes to rev... on the next pass if they had made it we bumped the rev limiter to 9100! They are well within reach of the record now. The salt gods said not this year though...

    Marc, got any pictures from the Salt Flats to post? I'm seriously kicking myself for not seeing under the hood of the car.

      Good to meet you too. I'm glad you got to come say hi. Are you guys going in Sept or Oct to hit your record?

          Chad,

          It'll depend on what they find this weekend during the tear down and if they can sort out a few other items. The car needs more gear. I'd fly in to help them out if they decide to go.

                  Not this year, the guys are out of time off and $$$ to get it ready for Oct. Too bad since we just started getting the tune sorted out.
