Finally got her to the track last weekend,soft tune and suspension detuned,ran a 5.77 on the third pass in the 1/8 mile.Needs more jet,little more timing,and open up the front end travel limiters,should have a 5.50 or better in it.Main thing was , still running and no parts fell off when i put her up.!!!!LOL

Those are some pretty good numbers for first time out. It always feels good at the end of the day to be able to load it under its own power. :lol:
