  4. No updates on the Skairlane but I did pick up my new trailer. It's a 34' Vintage Outlaw. We will be staying at every track we go to this summer. Trailer has bathroom shower a/c and heat. Can't wait to start using it this year. A7AC4F5A-.jpg 20170318_111406.jpg 20170318_111446.jpg 20170318_111451.jpg 20170318_111032.jpg

    The one I've got has a black powder coated stick,and I swapped my Hurst cue-ball over to it,so when you look in the car as you pass by,all you see is the white ball.You have to look real hard to see that it's not a Comp-Plus,or SuperShifter,or some kind of Hurst stick.
    Man,do they work nice though!And no fear of missing the 2-3 and sending stuff to connecting rod Heaven....

  17. Well I can say I am finally happy with my motor. It really helps when all the problems from bad parts and even worse work putting it all together are fixed. I can not thank Mike Faucher and his guy at Factory Billet enough for the job they did on my motor. I also gotta thank Mr Ric Panneton for helping me out and putting up with all my calls and tex messages once again everyone involved this time around knocked it out of the park this time. I learned a lot today on the dyno. I found out short injection stacks are not always best for making hp. We ended up with a stack length of 9" and could have made more power with longer stacks but they won't fit under the hood on my car. It lost 60 hp putting a 5" stack on it not to mention it ran like crap with the short stacks. We ended up with a pretty conservative tune only 34° of timing and a real safe air fuel and she put out 816hp and 661tq. We could have put more timing in it but felt it was good and safe where it is. Mike's dyno is on the conservative side also so he figured in the car it will show closer to 830hp from all the other engines he has done in the past. We will be taking the car to the next SEG race at ShadySide on the 29th can't wait to show everyone how it should have ran last year. This year is gonna be a good one.

  20. Got the motor in this weekend. I also got the dyno sheets today also. We never did see peek power out of it the cure is still going straight up at 7100. I wish I would have seen that when it was on the dyno we would have reved it higher. I told him I wanted to see 800hp and I would be happy so that's what he did. That was the reason we didn't push it real hard on the dyno. I cannot wait to see what it does in the car.

    Gonna cause the rest of the FE guys to get mad at you when they lose their weight break!
     
  30. Probably but I would hope he just take it away for the cammer not penalize everyone else for 1 being really fast. But as much as I've spent on this thing I could have had a 1200hp Windsor and still had money in the bank. But that's mainly because I have had to buy/fix stuff more than once. If it breaks again it's going to be pulled and sit in the corner for a while that's for sure
