  9. Thanks everyone for all the nice comments. It has been along year. We have accomplished so much. Im very proud of my team. As mentioned before the majority of the talent that made all of this possible is local. Its a big relief to get it back on the track. Doing the burnout yesterday it felt like i was back in the 65. We plan on making a hit today. I want to leave at a higher rpm. Plans for the car in the near future are being looked at. The iron invasion is one of them for the simple reason i believe in their cause. The good guys show in bowling green looks good so does rock falls.

    The baddest of the bad! I sustained a raw nitro coupe burnout high for hours! You all need to see it in person. The screen robs more than half the experience. I impatiently await the next time I can see it.

    Memorable life moments! Thanks Brian for slowing down to involve Arlo in gapping spark plugs.

    Brian, That thing is incredible, I saw you start it at the Meltdown Drags on nitro, super impressive. My daughter will be running her mustang on Sunday Oct.2 at Rockfalls. I assume you are planning on being there on the 1st. Good luck on the car and be safe.

  16. Enloe it will be set up for the street. No nitro. Due to the round robin way they run the shootout i cant stop at my pit spot for more fuel.

  18. Yes i need to get my licence updated. There will be a all out effort to get it ready for bowling green. We will now concentrate on the efi gas side.

    two words come to mind here...HOLEEEEY SHIT!
     
  22. I just picked the latest hot rod deluxe. On news stands now. The orange car comes back for one more showing. These pics were taken just days before the crash. The car was running perfect at that time. I really liked the way it looked then. Its kind of tough to read the story. That really sucked. Its funny how the story came out on the week i got it back on the road.

  23. The car looked and sounded great on the live feed. Why did they put a limit on your ET, I thought it was odd when they announced that ?

  24. The competition license that i had expired. The head tech guy looked like a south american general with all the pins and badges on his chest. This guy was very nice and all but a real nhra tech guy. He kicked up the decission to let me run up to the track manager. The manager said due to this track being owned by nhra there was no wiggle room. He said i can allow you to run but no faster than 9.90. I wasnt planning on any full passes anyway. If the car was completed sooner we would have had time to get updated. I will get it taken care of before bowling green.

  29. I watch these videos over and over. I watch them real time and pausing them every frame. The rear shocks look like they need adjusting. they need to be tightened a few clicks. Watching frame by frame the rear tires hop off the track at the hit. The chassis then kicks out a little bit. I didnt see it the first few times i watched it. nothing crazy that can't be adjusted for a better 60 foot.
