    Hey Mike, how she running on gas?
     
  3. Just a little stumble off the hit, I need to lean out the barrel valve, then it should be good. It's nice to go in the garage, turn the motor over about 4 times and it fires. No crazy alcohol maintenance of oil wash down. I put fuel scent in it so it smells like rootbeer, I hate the smell of 91

  9. That took me about 4 hours to tape off and another 4-6 to paint, but I like the way it came out

    Hey Mike
    Did they get a new tower built, any photos of it. Can't find any updates on the internet.
    I've ventured to Bako for many CHRR's and only one March Meet, and when I read about the fire, my heart just sank. Tragic for a place as storied as Famoso.
    BTW, that wheels-up shot is very cool!
     
  12. The tower is back up and running, I'll try and and post a few pictures later today. They are about to start A/Fuel test runs!

    Good news Mike
    Hey BTW, who's in A/Fuel this year, usual suspects or some new stuff?
    Man, do those injected nitro cars impress.
    Yes please, more photos as time permits.

    Mike
    That Falcar appears to be working quite well, finally enjoying all your hard work I bet.
    I guess I may have to steal one of those shots for my shop wall.
    Might have to move some Nova and 32 stuff around but I'm, flexible!
    I might even spend some $$$ on a frame!
    BTW, how is the new tower working?

  22. Thanks DDDeny, each race it gets a little better, I'm not the fastest or most expensive, but we sure have fun running it. I'd be honored to have my car hanging on a shop wall, especially if it causes a Chevy to move lol
