    The guy that told me, is one of the best engine builders I know, he has an inertia dyno he built 40 years ago. He has done lots of testing on 500 inch and bigger blown alcohol engines, and he knows his excrement! BTW, I would run a screen on the street, but not on the track.

    Put a receiver hitch on the Cuda and get or build one of those carry shelves that fit in the socket. You could even build a small box to keep road grime out of the fuel parts. The shelf wouldn't have to be as large as those you see on SUV's all the time, it could be half that size and hold most everything. Get to the track, pull the pin and set the shelf off, get ready to go, pin it back on. Easy peasy. and no trailers involved......

    I just got back from Tucson, I drove my brother's corvair up there, and drove his LaSalle back home. So, it was a long day.
     
  12. I just watched the vid. It was well done.

    I concur!
    Still can't quite wrap my arms around the amount of work this must have been and the short time it took to accomplish it.
    Brian, I think Jim and you must need half the amount of sleep as the rest of us.
    Job well done!

    I just saw it on bang shift this morning, great to see Jim get some recognition for the hard work that went into that car.

    You know your doing good when they pass up a chance to shoot a Fuel/Gasoline coupe parked right next to you. :)

    My mate Luke who put the video together is also a racer running quick motorcycles at his home track in Western Australia. Lately he has been living in the US while still contributing to the Drag News Australia
