Ok some of you will know that recently I came over to the US with a friend to purchase a FED.

Well we finally got it back to the UK last friday and took it to the track on saturday where we did a couple of shakedown passes in it..

As those that met him at bowling green would tell you he's never stuck for a word or 53, and it could get quite colourful..

He's the car owner and told me he forgot how noisy it can be when someone burns out and you are not ready, he got a dose of alky too.

I will ask him but may have to censor the answer. =;  =;

Never a loss for words. It took a long time to get there. Are you looking down or are your eyes closed?

Looks like you was having fun. Nothing like a FED to put a little bing bang in your ying yang.

Mark,

I'm just building up the engine for the altered, the digger belongs to a friend, we need to adjust the throttle for him and so I did the shakedown runs with it..

Yeah, it's a dirty job but someone had to do it, right? :-  =; I'll bet you "reluctantly" agreed to drive it too, right?  ;-)

It was always in the cards, my friend has not been in a car since 1989, the plan has always been for me to drive and at the same time fit in some test days where we can ease him back into things, we have to make a another throttle pedal to suit him as he has a problem with the one in the car.

Sam you hit the "edit" button instead of the "quote" button.  I fixed it though. ;-)

Mel you may just be right, but he still very excited over the whole deal..

1st run was a 9.4 @ 148, got it airbourne in the shutdown area, need to let it settle before I get on the brakes.

2nd run was 8.88 @147 I was out of it before 3/4 track and had driven it softly off the line


so low 8's or high 7's should not be out of the question.. that blower makes it sit  up at the hit tho..  =;  =;
