  2. 20180909_062940.jpg 20180909_071347.jpg 20180909_073358.jpg We slept outside the gate last night with about 30 other racers. When I woke up there were 400 cars. We got in and got teched asap. You don't want to sit in the hot sun for hours and hours.
    Tech goes in three stages.
    NHRA inspection
    Dot and trailer inspection
    Credentials and class inspection
    Then registration
    Back at the trailer the car was converted over to nitro use. We are ready we just need to pack the trailer for the road.
  3. Tech out of the way, let the adventure begin. Thanks for the pics. Go Fuel coupe!:):cool:

    That red/white 56 Chevy is a neat piece too.

  7. 20180909_125727.jpg Dave from the hog mountain garage stopped by with a t-shirt for me. He said it would bring good luck. We do appreciate all the guys coming out to see us. It nice to meet all of you in person.

    The awning is the sh**. I invited squirrel over to share some much needed shade. We are all in this together so a TEAM effort how to get it done.

  9. Brand a part stopped by. He hangs with the south east gasser guys and the quick and dirty car.
    Jimmy Walker from rad radiator stopped by. He made my radiator. He used to live in my home town. A few years ago he moved just outside Atlanta. Jimmy drives a 64 dodge altered wheelbase car on the street powered by a 392. It was fun to catch up. We fired the car on nitro it's ready. 20180909_135810.jpg 20180909_132752.jpg

    I was just checking your updates. My 5 yr old daughter for some reason puts down her iPad and says dad I got green. I say what?
    Apparently my wife got her this car on a trip to the store for some missing dinner ingredients. Of course I state how it’s not quite the same.
    Brian your influence is far reaching.

  13. FANTASTIC. Good luck tomorrow . I suppose the plan is to get a clean pass early, do the switch over, pack up and hit the road for the next track?

  14. Everything we need to make the change over is in a pile sitting next to the trailer. The trailer is organized and ready. I gapped 40 plugs during the rain storm. It's all about time management.

  17. Great first half of the track. Hooked hard and went straight. About 700 feet the big 20 gallon pump caught up to the engine. When that happens it goes rich. It feels like a rev limiter is on. The jet got changed from 100 to 120. Everything else checks out good. We are loaded up and ready to head north.
  18. Kinda figured something was up, looked liked it laid over out about half track. Hope you have wipers of RainX or both. Was Squirrels car driving okay and he just played it safe ?

    Good to see y'all yesterday. Are they sending you north to a checkpoint? Darlington is due east.

    Watched your run today, Sounded friggin awesome! Good luck , be safe and most of all have FUN!!!
  24. I spoke to roger tonight about the rich issue. With how far it is we migh go for a 140. I started this summer with a 80 nozzle. The new pump puts out more fuel than what I'm used to.

    Love watching all the old iron! S10s and Fairmonts not so much.

    Brian's coupe sounds like a lion in a room full of kittens.
