Good deal! I'll try and catch up with you there. I think we'll try and compete with Bill's Grand National. We're trying to get it to the track in the next couple of weeks for some shakedown passes, lots of changes since he last ran down the track.

Thanks, I appreciate it, If I get really close, I may have to try and run some 113 through it to get that extra bit.

We shall see.

Bill,
Did you make the trip to San Antonio? It's been raining off and on for the last 2 days here. I just checked with the track and they said they were getting ready to dry the track and were planning on running today and tomorrow. I was going to call you but misplaced your cell number. Let me know if you're at the track, I'll try and stop by and visit.

Yes I made the trip, got to run tonight,well preliminary, it looks like I picked up a 10th. best pass before was a 6.15@110 in -500 foot of air. Well in a 1000 foot of air, it ran a 6.19@109. Tomorrow morning I should get the chance to better that.

I will be out there all day tomorrow till I go out so hopefully it will be a long day. It will be good to see you.

Well I didn't get the great air I was hoping for, but I did get pretty good air. Air was about 1500 feet worse then my previous best of 6.15@110. So I only missed my best by .05. I figure that shows approximately a .10 improvement.

OK so it was a good day then. Not what you were looking for but a good day just the same especially if the car came home in one piece!

Well almost, double tech race, still got both cards going into the 5th round, broke the rear.

But definitely a good day. One of the prices we pay from trying to go faster, always find the weak link in the combination.

Had I gotten condition like crandal, I think it would have been really close to that 5.99 goal.
