    Spib got me excited

    So now it's my turn to get back to the track.

    Falcon is all back together, running good (even got the choke adjusted, nyuk nyuk nyuk).

    Taking the day off Wednesday and taking the car up to Pacific Raceways for test & tune.

    Here's a couple of recent shots.

    Just guesses and best estimates at this point. Weight probably around 2900, hp under 500 at flywheel.

    Why do you ask?

    Murff your car looks good and i thought it may be light I just wanted to run some numbers on it. Thanks for the info. I am just guessing I think you will do a 10.50 at 128 or 6.64 at 102 let us know when you get back so i can see how far off I was.

    You can't imagine how tickled I would be to hit the 10's with this car. 10.60 has been my goal since I started so I can run D/Gas in the nostalgias.

    We had in out once in April before I found a bunch of stuff wrong with the engine. Only got two passes with a best of 12.30 @ 106 with a 1.61 60'. I'm optimistic that I've fixed and tuned a second out of it, don't know about getting two out of it.

    But I'm a hopin'!

    Thanks.
