They love it !! Get some funny looks when they try to figure it out. Guys from other Teams came over and checked it out, we even had the jet dragster team from Dominator check it out !! All in all it was a great event, even found a new pic on FB from us at PBIR 8)

Towed the funny car to West Palm Beach, FL Feb 9th. Unloaded car, checked it over, bumped ignition timing up 2 degrees. Warmed up engine, and idled down to turn around by ET shack, where they have a designated Trans-Brake test area... Got it up on converter, seemed to like more timing, let go of button, hiked front end pretty good, let off throttle, all was fine until I tried to stop... Brake handle was soft, had no effect, pumped up some pressure, and they locked up, skidded to stop w/ right side tires just touching the grass !! Had to open a bleeder to get it back into trailer... Got lucky, no damage !! I'll figure out what's wrong when I get it back to Missouri next week or so 8)

Let us know what you find with the brakes. Proportioning valve stick or......? Inquiring minds. :wink:
Glad you found it there, rather than the top end of the track.
15th Annual DRAGLIST Nationals Sometime in 2020. Somewhere in the USA.
