I would accept Smirnoff Ice products as a replacement for beer, my liquor concoctions can get expensive. LOL

For those that don't know, I am allergic to barley

13.8 definately isn't bad, but for over 2k worth of work... Come on ole man you can do better than that... Better get Rodney making some adjustments ;)

There ARE some issues!

I didn't open the exhaust, and it keeps hitting the fuel shutoff/rev limiter at 6500 that Rodney forgot to dis-able, or somehow re-enabled itself, so that limited it alot.

It pulls like crazy from 4000 but it needs to go to about 7000. Still it ran 13.87 then 13.86 pretty easy.

I don't really think it will break into the 12's but it is going to be damn close.

The converter worked fine, the drag radials held on as the track was in great shape, but I only made three runs and left. The first one on the street tires (14.03 @ 97.93)

It was just too hot and humid.

On the old set up it would have been about a 14.30 day.

However this was more of an excursion to ensure everything was happy and I could trust it for 8 hours to Chicago tomorrow. And everything is happy. No leaks, drives perfectly.

And Billy has created another gem. 3t40's FTMFW!

Just have to change the oil and pack.

Right there with you. I think this is the first event where I need to change the oil before I leave, AND when I get back.

One of the things I have said I would never do is go to a local Test and Tune night. (They just don't prep the track at all)

I did it for B'Fest 2008 at Toronto Motorsports Park, and again the day I broke it last November. (see above!!)



:shock:

Nice. Give her some more practice with it and you won't be able to keep up!

you just shaved 100lbs right there isnt' that good for a 1/10th of a sec or something like that.

people laugh at my size 5'6" and roughly 120lbs but im saving weight compared to most people. even with the 70lb sub box in the trunk im coming in near what some people weigh.
