    Phil... We wanted to get a couple more laps on it before Beaver Springs just to shake out the new car bugs. We'll take next weekend off to go watch the racing at Thompson on Sat. and catch up on house chores on Sun. It seems like summer is coming at us at the speed of light.
     
  7. I believe I owe you at least 24 Buds on ice John....lol.......can't wait to hear you rubble down the street outside our shop.

    It's been a while and we've torn up a few parts but here's a shot from this years opening race with the Gasser Racing Series. New Kresman power and switch to alcohol. The Hunter seems happy.

    Micky --we're up around 7k at the stripe with 4.56's. Wouldn't mind bringing that number down a little bit. we thought we would try a set of 4.30's that we had our hands on.

    This past weekend at the Thompson reunion. When we switched to alcohol we replaced the rad with a new fuel tank. We used a trans cooler as the new rad but it stuck out just a half inch too far so we had to cut the old grill out to make room. Our friend Gary made the roof panel and door panels out of pieces of an aluminum street sign and he had a piece big enough to form us the new grill. We spaced it out far enough to clear the cooler. I thought it looked pretty cool once we got it mounted.

    We have it on our calender Dave. I loved racing on that track. My son has never been down it. We're looking forward to it.

    Been a little while since I put anything up. We've had a busy and great summer. We raced a little up here in Canada and crisscrossed from Norwalk, OH to Epping, NH. Had lots of fun with lots of good friends..both old and new. Here's a cool shot of the burnout at Epping. Pic was taken by Jim Madigan. We qualified #2 in D/G(9.5) but that good air at sea level on Saturday played games with us. Car ran 9.42 on the brakes for the double breakout loss.
