Not even had a chance to diagnose the car yet... If we are closed here at the Dragstrip for another couple weeks, I'll have time to get it fixed up !! Glad to be out of the Tampa Florida area, as they are extremely hard hit by this Virus :(

Spent some time with the BackMotor funny car's brakes... Checked & tested everything, and survey says... Stuck check valve for front brakes !! Could not blow thru it in either direction, tapped and banged it around, eventually freed up, but don't trust it now. Top pic is the offending 15 year old check valve, 2nd pic is a care package from Larry Jeffers Race Cars, that arrived today, will install and bleed system tomorrow 8)
