Alright, so the PMS deal was short-lived, and in the end I got paid :mrgreen: But in true drag racer fashion, I landed on my feet, and signed 'Auto Repair 1' of Riverview, FL to a 2 year deal !! 8) On the very first night out wearing their logo, I ran a new personal best MPH !! We finally got the A/Fuel engine to run right :oops: Here is a pic >>

Thanks Billy !! We ran 126.27 (1/8th mile) on a slow-ish pass (the ET was off by 3/4 of a second) I know it's not all that fast, but with all the problems we have had switching over to this new engine, it's nice to have something to hang our hat on for a change :mrgreen: Video of the 2 runs we made that night >>

Hmmm....6.30 @ a buck 26...That beast is sho huntin' on the top end!! What is/was the 60' on that last pass?? To give you a measuring gauge to compare to...my personal best is a 5.72 @ 122.98 with a 1.23 60'. It sounds like there is a LOT more potential in 'er... Keep us in the loop 8)

Mike, what is your best ET for this year? And where did you run it (and the 126.87). Also, are you running injected nitro or injected alky?

Thanks. BIll

Thanks !! :mrgreen: The 60' was a pedestrian-like 1.99 :roll: Used to be 1.1X with the little motor (for comparison) and should be 1-flat or even .9X soon !! 8)
