Well Vic Finally got in it on Saturday had a problems with his helmet that mean't he could not see properly small burnout and launch and idled it through 15 seconds.

Sorted the problems and another go, he ran a 10.8 @95 but was 105 at the 1/8th. (he had a sore shoulder and was having trouble getting out of the car)happy with that he asked me to drive it again on sunday.

1st run was a 8.25 @155 I got out of early as this track is bumpier than the other one I ran at and had it bouncing all over the place, with just getting off the throttle and allowing the car to settle before doing anything it's a lot better.

2nd run was a match race with another FED same combination, he ran 8.28 @163 and I won with an 8.010 @ wait for this 183.56 no problems in the shutdown area.. my previous best was a 166.5 it felt quite quick but not that quick.. Oh and I ran it in high gear which hurt the 60 foot, the track had very little grip so I'd decided early on that i'd be doing high gear only runs..

now to just drop it into the 7's =;  =;

But Sam, don't you realize that thing will run quicker with a Turbo 400 tranny in it?  O:)  Just kidding!   ;-)  That's moving along pretty good, hey!  I guess that high gear and blower made the top end charge that fast.  I've been 7.96 in a digger but MPH was only 168 on a N/A BBC.
