    I have done my part . I erected a cool weather shrine in my back yard and will continue to feed it till we leave for the track. Damn it gets hot in Byron in July!

    I hit "send" at 12:02. Does that count as getting ready?

    I just got an email from the track that I am in for July.
     
  8. I got a text moments ago that the nitro coupe is in.
     
  9. The email I received states they are close to the max car count, but still have space.

  10. The meltdown is history. It was a great run. I'm ready for the next chapter. I cant wait for July. It will still be the must attend race of the year. As far as what I'm doing to get ready my engine and trans have been serviced. They are both back in the car. New tires have been purchased for the back. We should be starting the engine by mid February to make sure everything is ready to go for spring testing. We plan on going down south to get some hits on the car. George Ray's in paragould Arkansas the weekend of may 17,18 19th is the first test session. Fire burnouts are also part of the program down there. We plan on pushing the car harder this year.

    Why would you say the Meltdown Drags is history?

  12. Because it is. Only the location and date is the same. The most important part that being the people that started it are no longer running it. The event will be similar yet different.

    I'm in. Hotdog is in too. Now to set up the rear axle. Hope the trans holds up for awhile. Setting up a toploader but will be a slow and pricey endeavor.

    Looks like I'll just let you guys have a year of track tune, give you a chance to work your bugs out.
    You don't want any when we get to meat again. ;)
