    Hey Phillip,
    That last scene with the Flathead FED showing "smoke" coming off the tires was cool.....now maybe I need to add something to my signature that says something about that white stuff is being "created"....not just sluffing off some excess salt like Phil's cars...hahaha.....gonna have to work on that:rolleyes:

    Missed ya....the Studebaker looked good out there....call you soon

    Saw your car parked next to us....looked good....had to look even better out on the line:cool:
    Glad to see that you were out having fun with it, on your first outing. And watch out now.....cause "you got the bug":eek:....remember....Little River first weekend of May:D
     
  6. Skot,

    I was going to come introduce myself since we are constantly on Brian V.'s emails but lost track of time. Yes, I caught the bug... So much fun.. I am in dire need of somebody that can tune my car. Re jet carbs (rochester 2G's), set timing correctly. I need to upgrade the old dual point distributor with something a bit more modern. I had absolutely no idea what I was doing but at the line when trying to get the RPM's up the motor kept falling on its face. Anyway... looking for a good motor man to help me out... If I can get these things worked out I will for sure be at Little River the first weekend of May. I think you need to give Brian a hard time for not being the cook like promised.. ha ha Brian..

    The "LEGENDS" Nostalgic Drags will always be the weekend after the LSR, I won't miss that! Event is held in Sealy, TX approx. 30 miles west of Houston on I-10. Only a short hop, skip and jump from Austin, about a two hour drive if you get out of Austin before rush hour!

    Pictures...here ya go....Chet just sent this to me


    [FONT=&quot]Well the first batch of pictures have arrive of our 4th Ever, "LEGENDS" Nostalgic Drag and Rod Run. The attached link will take you to Flickr where Bill Jacomet has posted a number of incredible pictures of this weekends event. While it would take many pages to describe all the great things that happened, two stand out, the first being Heidi Van Horne, colonist for the Houston Chronicle graced us with her presence after writing a great article about our event that appeared in the Houston Chronicle last Thursday and 6 year old James Bane raced the Scorpion I a dragster that was built by Legendary Texas racer Bobby Langley in the 50's and won! Enjoy the pictures and please share with friends because I do not have everyone's email particularly those in the LEGENDS photo. I will post on my Facebook page so please send people there for these and other postings as I receive them.[/FONT]

    I don't think tuning the carbs is next. Got to find tdc and the right tab but a 3.0 gear with a 31 inch tire ,a 2700 pound car and a turbo 350 is not a good combo

    Danny,
    You're right ....real bad combo to drag with...good highway combo for mileage
    Here's the cure....like in my little 3w...."Quickchange rear end".....ya can have it all....maybe not cheaply:rolleyes:....dang universal problem with street cars running on the track, and why I quit running the orange 5w

  25. Just to clarify.. I built the car as a driver not a dragster. I am not looking to convert it to one now. It has run like crap since I built it, it still runs like crap and I can't find anybody to tune it. Fully aware of its short falls as a drag car. Simply needing a carb guy.
    I would love a quick change rear end God knows for no other reason than it would look a sight better from the back of the car than the 9 inch. Wasn't in the budget. But I will put it on my wish list... :) hasta luego fellas

    Ha. We had fun. James is still talking about his race with the Scorpion. Thanks to Chet and everyone involved in making this race happen. After the race James got Don Ross and Bill Crosby to sign his Scorpion poster. Another one down. lol
