    Mike, the car looks great. How did it run with the 2x4s and what kind of times did you run with them?
     
  4. The 2 4s with very minor tuning went 13.06 at 107. There was a lot more in them though

    Mike;I think the owner is up in your area.I tried to find him at CHRR but no luck!It looks to be a clean Comet! ROY.
     
  8. I don't know who the owner of that comet is, I couldn't find him up there. But it was a good race for me. I got him by 2 tenths.

    That seems to be a pretty nice Comet. I found this photo in another thread, I'm guessing this must be the owner:

    Hi Roy,
    I've been trying to track down that car in my avatar,just to see if anyone ever finished it or not.As far as I know,that photo was taken in 2004,but I can't find anything else about the car on the HAMB,or anywhere on the web.
    It's pretty much the meanest looking A that I've ever seen,and I am patterning mine closely after it,with a hard 6" chop,and a boxed stock A frame with fabricated cross members.

    Mike,that Falcon is getting to be a pretty big deal out there!Im guessing it's only a matter of time til you get some magazine coverage for it.:)

    Ps:Thanks for the intake!

    Scott

    Al;I just finished the setup this afternoon! It was a PAIN IN THE ASS,I hate setting up used parts,plus Mike has some sort of locker that is held together by the ring gear bolts.I did not notice it until I took the last bolt out and it exploded all over the shop! I then had to find all the parts,then figure out how it went together,build a tool to put it back together and hold it while I installed the ring gear,great design.NOT!!! ROY.
