Good day at the track, Bowling Green. The air went from -100 feet Density altitude last week to +2200 feet today O:) . Last week water grains were 17 today they hit 100 [-( . Go figure. I leaned the squirters from 35 to 32 and MAB from 26 to 31 Main Jets were 84. Jake ran a 6.98 first time run. I dropped the jets to 82 and it ran a 6.96. Jake won first round and backed out and ran a 7.18. During time runs and first round Jake noticed that there was a small catch in the throttle that made it hard to get the right RPM on the launch. Well second round we forgot to check it out. #-o When he came up on the converter he had to press a little harder and it released and went up to 3k and the lights were coming down needless to say he lost. LOL He ran a 6.94 on a 6.96. Before we loaded I changed the accelerator pump cam and it fixed it. Then we loaded and while hooking up I noticed the tires had cord showing so it was a good thing he didn't run again. LOL When we put new tires on this thing I don't know how it will do. LOL I got some good data and Jake got some seat time in competition. Oh yeah and we had a belt break a trailer tire and changed it before we left the track. :) Remember a bad day at the track is better than a great day at work!!! \:D/ \:D/

Yeah Jake wanted some seat time. He said T&T is boring! LOL Willies truck gets faster every year. \:D/ \:D/ That not a bad run considering the air. We went fron 6.80 to 6.98 in one week. O:) Just cause of the air! O:) ](*,) ](*,) When is your truck going to be done?

If everything goes well, I might get to test this weekend. But will things will have to happen.
I would like to get 2 test sessions in before the 1st race. We will see.
