  3. That live feed is great, what part of the steering came apart on the "Missing Link" ?

    Well I did not get to meet or see as many of you guys run as I wanted to . But I could only come down Sat and I had to leave at 6:00. I guess I needed to stay later to see the BIG DOGS RUN!!!! I did get to see James run and yesterdays child and both ran great but I was really impressed with the little white ranchero! It really hooks up and hauls for not having any real tires on her!! What a sleeper! See you next year

    Great show Thanks for the live feed for us "LOSERS" who couldn't make it. Awesome I already told my wife that Ethan and I would be there next year if I had to make a donation to get him out of the fundraiser:)

    Thank you Meltdown crew!! We had a great time for the third year in a row. This was the first time I had ever been down the dragstrip. And I was able to do it in a car I built myself. My dad,son and wife were able to come and my daughter was able to live stream from camp. You guys ROCK. Plus the little car ran way better than I had hoped,made the 3 yrs we worked on it worth it. Hotel is booked for next yr, and the little car needs a transmission, but we are ready for the next Meltdowns.

  20. BEST MELTDOWN YET !!
    Thank you to the MDA, the town of Byron and the Byron Dragway group for putting on a fantastic weekend. I was skeptical about bringing the 2 new supercharged gasser groups and their elimination format but boy am I happy to have been proven very very wrong... They were incredibly loud, fast and entertaining.

    Best weekend ever for Pelissier Family Racing.
    We got the Prefect sorted out (mostly) ran .7 tenths faster than we have ever run prior with a 10.29 / 131 best and then we hot lapped the little rust bucket on Sunday. I am still trying to wrestle the Scout down the track with the new combination. But we made the magazines with 3 wheelie bar bending sky shots, and a picture (and spectator) perfect launch and pass during the live feed (10.18 / 130). Friday we went a best of 9.78 / 138...

    Yee haw !!

    First of all...awesome car...great to see it in person.

    We normally had Judd's Custom Photos there, but they had to cancel. We are going to see if some of the photographers can post their info for guys to try and get some. One photographer said he is going to give us Meltdown guys a copy of the flash drive containing the 8,000 pics he took...I will do my best to help you all out when I get that

    I saw Scotts Mustang there on Saturday but did not see it run. I take it from Okiedoker's post that Scotts weekend didn't go as planed. Oh well I guess there is always next year. Larry
