Well, guys,,yes I made it there,,,had everything turned down bit for the first outing,....My friend Ron was ther also..with his new rear setup...first time run,,2 step on 4200,,launched and wasnt in the groove,,,went left and lifted..bounched pretty hard,,shook the gas out of the carb...ran out and ran an 8.09 @105.88....I think the top end chip is bad or it has alot steeper gear than a 5.14.....like a 6.50 or so... :-k 8000 chip and hit it before the 1/8 mile marker...Oh ,,and then the rain came,,,,and ended our day.....well,,everyone analyze the vid,,yes got one vid,,,,me and ron ran togeher,,thats him passin me up in a hurry... O:) anyways.,,,I want to take some lift out the the front for sure,,think the sbc aluminum head motor made the front 2 light for the setup....Help.... #-o
Oh..rons car ran like a top right out of the gate,,,wish mine had done that..Congrats Ron,,buddy...

Tray.. Glad to see you made it out to the track and brought it home running. Da** ya think the front shocks might need to be stiffened up. Did ya learn how to pack the parachute ?

Looks like it will run pretty good when ya get a few things sorted out.

Looks like the track was a little slippery or it unloaded the tires..
I am sure you will get it lined out soon the MPH shows the power is there
just got to get it hooked up. Good luck and I hope to see it hit those 5.90's
in your next video!!...By the way how do you do the slow motion thing
off the starting line with the camara? Is it in how you recorded it or played it? I'd like to do that with mine.. Thanks \:D/ \:D/
