Just went from oh shit to oh fuck
I'm defeated looks like well be spectators this year
Thats a strange looking pushrod? Bummer man, I wanted to see that car.
Forcast is 90-92 daytime and 68 nighttime!
there's 3 more that match that one, still not sure what happened, valve springs maybe, haven't decided if i even want to tear into it before bonneville. it'd be nice to know what the fuck happened for sure but i've been on the car 12-14 hours a day for the last week and a break would be nice.
pissed me off that it did it last minute too, i just fired it to make sure the new tach was working, no strange noises only about 1200rpm standing next to the exhaust noticed nothing was hitting me in the leg off the front pipe, compression test... just about nothing, pulled the valve cover and let a few four letter words fly. it could be worse, i don't think it did any major damage just need to replace the bent stuff.
Will be there Sat thru Thur with the Salt 2 Salt car. A Studebaker powered Studebaker. Worked for the last 2 weeks and the car is better than ever before. We will up the records we set last year. See you there.
Bruce brady left okc today with the texoma flyer all new just finished here. Im gonna fly out fri morning and meet up with him. we will be staying at the bend look us up car is red number 389 c/str 29 on 32 rails...I am ready.....
Don't know if it's been mentioned already,but I just looked on the bni/scta web site and the BLM closed camping inside the bend and moved camping to the west,. Might want to look at their map.
Will be there this year but the other guys could not make it. Would love to help out for a couple of days on a crew. I can't rebuild your ardun but anyone looking for someone to hold the sun umbrella or run to the store let me know here or I will be at one of the 2 long tracks with the wife's canary suzuki.
