    The car went 10.28 @131.9 today . . . with a bad launch and me taking my foot out of it.

    I can't wait to get my license so I can let the dogs out!!

    Video to come. :bunny3:

    They would likely tell me not to come back to the track until the car was certed and I was licensed.

    That said . . . stay tuned . . . I may get a wink and a nod tomorrow. We'll see.

    It might actually get into the 8s on motor with a bit of tuning. My engine builder told me he can get me another 2-3 tenths out of it on the tune . . . and I know it'll go deep nines as it is. :boink:

    True Bull, nice times! I've been out of the loop for a month or more, but sounds like you've got the car running again. I'll have to look around for pics of the finished product. Inspiring as always!

    Thanks, Chris.

    I still haven't done a "photo shoot" because I haven't really gotten to the cosmetics, yet. But, if you look at my Build Thread in the Garage, you'll see the latest. Check out the In Car Video in the Garage, too. It's pretty cool.

    Thanks, Michael.

    Yeah . . it has a lot more in it. And, as soon as I'm licensed, I'll find out exactly how much.

    BTW, I owe you some props for what the car is today. I was so impressed with what my Snow Kit did when it was a blower car, that I converted completely to methanol. Cool stuff. Literally.

    My water temp has yet to break 150 degrees . . . I haven't turned the fan on yet and only run the water pump during the run and on the return road. 8)

    Cheers,

    Tad
