    Well, I got it fire up again last night! New pump and nozzles. Didn't run as good as it did with the old set up. I think I might have to play around with some different pills to get it where it needs to be. Not sure If I need to go richer or leaner? I sent a message to Alkydigger asking him for advice. Not sure how much help he could be without actually being there but it's worth a shot I guess. Four days away from the drag reunion! I might make it! LOL!

    I’m sure you’ve said, but is this on gas or alcohol? I had trouble getting my setup that Alky digger set up running on gas. His name says it all. If you have access to a Facebook account, message Quain Stott and ask him. He had mine way better with a couple simple things. Just a thought.


    Nothing holds like a good cross thread!

    He's the Sega guy right? I'm try it. Still no luck. Runs like shit! The truck will be display only tomorrow. I'm out of time and patience. I'm going to have to walk away from this fire a while and come back to it. I'd sell it!!

    Took it back to Waynesboro, Jim's home track. This truck was built less than a mile from there.

    Do you have any idea what E.T.'s and MPH the truck ran back in the day?

    His brother said they once went into the 10's at about 140 also. This is the only time slip I have.

    11.07 in Richmond. (news article)

    Yeah I saw the digger but wasn't sure if that was yours or not. Didn't recognize anyone. I see you guys have Petie's old hauler. That's a cool piece for a FED.
    Yeah his Anglia is coming along. It had been rolled so they have a little work ahead of them.
