  • Done testing. It's prep time!

    Well I've been beating my junk to death most of the summer. Went [email protected] last time out on same tune up I used in 2012 and was going 9.90,s with. So I got a little more out of her by refining gearing and the tune up. Heading out for one last day July 4th weekend and then up on stands. Change all the fluids and go over every nut and bolt and electrical connections. Time to switch to prep mode!

                    Car will cruise nice at 65-70 now mike. I forgot how nice it was to have the 3.75 in it. I also ran the car n/a last week and with the tight converter and new gear it went [email protected] It's two tenths off of its best on motor. The gear hurt it a lot less than I thought it would on motor.

                      Now if we can get Jake to put some gear in his we will have time to stop and get some food and still make the hotel for the evening party.

                        What were you thinking!?

                        Slimbo,
                        It appears that you have tempted the Drag Week gods and publicly stated your preparedness. Are you crazy!? We will pray for you buddy.

                              Wtf do you mean not coming... And as for being doomed. Pfft! I thumb my nose at the drag week gods. I have beaten the week twice with zero issues and plan to do it again. Now I gotta get going. I have to stop at every church on the way to work and pray....lol
