    On a serious note folks...our friends from Drag Racing Back-Up Girls (on Facebook) are sponsoring a Back Up Girl contest at this years Meltdown. This is a great chance for you to get your better (looking) halves involved. An esteemed panel of judges will be involved to pick the winner. This is in addition to the Ms. Meltdown pin-up contest.

    And no Ric...you can't get all Bruce Jenner on us and put on a tube top while backing up Marc.

  5. G-Force training , meaning when the Child is gobbling asphalt and getting alarmingly small in the windshield of Chicken Dirty, its gonna feel like your making a pass in reverse Marc. @_@

    On a far less disturbing note,here's a shot of most of my parts loaded in the Samsquanch (if you've never seen the show Trailer Park Boys you won't get that reference) for delivery to my engine guy to get rolling on assembly and a bit of Dyno time so we'll have our timing and jetting pretty close when we drop it in the car.

    It's gonna be the first "not a complete piece of poo" motor we've ever owned,so my Dad and I are pretty nervous about making sure everything is right before we go out and spin er up to 8500r's.

    Wish us luck fellas:)

    I should correct my statement. I've seen the date already posted months back for the June 4th date. What I don't see or hear is much talk about it on here. That is a shame because it seems to be a good event.

    While I'm flattered, it looks like you do a fine job wheelin' that beast you built, and I don't think you'd really wanna miss out on the fun of a single pass...especially with the improvements in the 392! :D

    Besides, if Ric's backin' me up in a tube top, they'll be callin' the car Ric 'n Dirty, and I'll be backin' up so fast to try to get away from the horrors in front of me I'll probably plow the car behind me and nobody wants to see that debacle!

    Lots of talk there big Jim. You have to excuse me for asking, but what times does that orange ford run? I had ADD as a kid, so I usually can't watch your race the whole time and I never see the time get posted... I lose focus after like 20 seconds...

    Ok, it all makes sense now. So your saying by the time you get up to the staging lanes against Eric, with your ADD, you've lost all focus on what your doing so too the crowd it looks like your asleep at the tree? I'm glad you've cleared that up. I was beginning to think that the Okie Doker was just that slow of a car.

    We've had a bit of less than ideal weather lately Tony....But things were calm enough for Mama,wee Mr Byron,and myself to make the trek up there this afternoon to drop off some stuff,and Mr Smith was kind enough to share some clutch tuning info from his Modified Production and SuperStock experience,and also has a few Nash trans parts he may be able to help me out with:)
    He's quite a gentleman,and a big thanks to Ric for pointing me in his direction:)

    Big Jim:
    The list of cars I want to run is a long one....Sooooo many cool cars,and so little time!
    I want to set up as many races as I can against cars that I won't look out of place racing:
    -Norb's Tickety Boo
    -Jon Tomkins' Tomkins Carburetor Service Falcon
    -Art's Sour Grape
    -anything SuperStock
    -Mopar Bob's 62Furious (love that car)
    -The Okie Doker better be ready.....Cause this Mustang is gonna come after him more like a Stuka....And the Okie Doker is gonna get Blitzkrieg'd...!!!
