    Do you turn the injection scoop around when driving in the rain Brian?
     
  2. 20180910_162118.jpg Yes. There is a filter in it. Just crossed a washed out road. Deep water.

    I figured even with some sort of filter, you turned it around, did you have to oil them?
    That must be some sight, you two going down the road in the rain, rooster tails and all.
    Extra credit for keeping everyone on the HAMB up to speed too Brian.

  7. We are doing a gas stop at branchton sc. 20180910_165301.jpg
     
  8. Stay safe, and keep the shiny side up Brian. We saw your run and it looked very good, sounded even better. The live stream got some good footage of the run and the great burnout. Good luck in Darlington, hope the rain stops.

    If you have a chance later I'm curious of the route they sent y'all on. I thought I knew SC but I don't know Branchton. Good luck.

    Edit: Never mind, I found the route online.. it's pretty specific.

    I saw a few minutes of the live steam this morning. I saw the couple with the hemi and many carbs make a stout run. I hope the party is not interrupted by Florence.
     
  11. Any one know if they are still going to Darlington tomorrow now that we are having a mandatory evacuation east of I-95 through out the state.

    Are you polishing the Magnesium wheels after the rain?
    See you guys Friday:)
     
  13. I gave up on that. We just arrived at Darlington. It's a big party in the quality inn parking lot. No one is going to bed.

    I am posting a bunch of pics from the final day on the thread that is linked in my signature.
     
  19. Too bad I didn't stick around. They pulled my name to win a gear vendor's over drive. That's a few grand. I had to be present to haul it home.

    the spool surprised me how well it behaved. Never any issues with driving in wet weather...the car has 235/75r15 tires, new ones with plenty of tread.
