I'm going to get antique plates for myself soon!!

My car has not been my focus in a while although I have just about everything to put it together but time. I still drive other's cars though, going to be at an Atco rental tomorrow actually. Might even pop my 7 second cherry if all goes as planned.

7s seconds is like, 10seconds 5 yrs ago... you should be saying 6s or 3.90 and I might get a little wiggle. Come on man....

Yes Julio, I miss those days..

Doug,

What will it take you to get that car out of retirement?

How about this,
Let's race? 5 grand each, your vert against mine, supercharger to supercharger, any size, ls base motor, 275 radial tire, fuel is q16, innercooler is air to air or air to water. Race will be 1st week in Sept or at yellowbullet. Track only. 2 g up front for punk out. 1/8 mile

Let me know? Miss you bro!! Xoxo

Thinking back. I honestly think I went through every blower that ProCharger sold.

Started out with a p1, then d1 had that for a month then changed up to an F1a. That was a bad bitch. From their I went to an f2 which I had for 2 weeks to purchase a F3a121.


Having ProCharger and Cartek in my corner this car broke a lot of hearts...

Wonder what's next?

Nope, the track wouldn't hold. Broke loose mid track, surprised because it was a pro mod rental so the prep was good. I also didn't have long to stay that day, oh well, some other time.

I doubt it will be this year, we are moving into our new shop as I type and I just have too much going on. Shame though, my engine is just sitting on a stand waiting to be dropped in. It will happen when you least expect it!!

I enjoy the heads up racing. I really enjoyed the nmca LS drag radial class, but this year they deleted it from the schedule.

I did some changes and planning on racing in the nmca street outlaw series. Hoping to be out testing the waters in a few weeks..

The 102 to the 123 tb makes a world of a difference.

And changing everything to 5 inch instead of the 4.

I can't wait to feel the change

I would like to know what the old engine really made, at 21 pounds and just around 6000 rpm it made 1200 RWHP and on the dyno with the PG I took it to about 7500 rpm and was making about 36 psi, at the track we were going to 8500. Any guess?

I don’t know, man... that 10.0h class is pretty tough. Hope you can hit (or get close to) the number...

Looking good, Sir!
