    Sounds good, Sir. We gotta do what we gotta do. ;)

    Flamed my 'Toad wagon today as well. Needed to do the final tune on the SUs. Took'er 'round the block once she warmed up. Back in the driveway, doing a final diddle on the mixture when one of the local mothers pulled up and gave me a ration for speeding in the neighborhood. Wasn't speeding, never went over 25 ...... was turnin' the hides a wee bit in first though. :rolleyes:

    It used to be, "deny everything, demand proof, and always pay cash for the negatives". In today's digital age there is no where to hide. Just figure on being screwed!

    Somewhere in the great cosmic (or was that comic) realization there is a formula for jetting that beast and making it run right. When you figure that out I'm sure I'll see the glow from your smile down here in So Cal!

    I know a guy here in NZ who cast his own aluminum FE block and eventually went 6 seconds in his dragster. Had no training or experience with casting metal before he started. He was a body guy years ago, but he is a tax accountant now! Builds everything himself.

  28. There was no Kid in the real Burt world. That was a movie only addition. Obviously this guy comes from a similar mold as Burt. So many Kiwis do.
