    Today is an awesome day.....I finally got to drive the Strange Bird! What a RAD feeling. I will be deaf for a week, but it was well worth it. CHECK OUT THE VIDEO BELOW.

    Here is video of the car taking a hot lap around my shop...That's Casey, my apprentice/helper/fabricator/abuse cushion in the passenger seat smiling nervously. He helped a great deal on this car.

    Finally, I get to see it run. I have been following the build and have enjoyed watching from afar. You have a neat car and I am sure you will enjoy it. As I said before, the numbers matching crowd are probably crying in their beer.

    No, but he was saying "what?" alot.

    I'll be in an out all day. You should come by saturday....I'm going to run it again after a few tweeks.

    There is no traction whatsoever. Not even a tiny bit. Unless its on a sticky track with no dust in sight......that car is going nowhere hahaha.

    If you think about revs, it revs. No need to touch the pedal. Insta-blap.

    The cam is a custom Comp unit, and it is as wild as you can get for a blown nailhead. I told them the results I wanted, and they did a great job delivering. I can't remember the specs offhand.

    NASTY!!!

    Ive seen alot of "drag" cars around here that sound like they couldn't turn a tire...

    That blown nailhead sounds great!

    Great Job,
    Dave
