He was all over it. I am pretty sure he polished the clear coat right off of it while he was reminding me he had 3 more years until he was 8 and could have his jr dragster.

Had some issues with it the 1st 2 weeks that we will blame on me 100%. Now that I am with the program on the aluminum block and how they expance versus the steel block we did get 1 good weekend on the car. I really need to get this thing on a scale to see what my weight is.


60'- 1.105
1/8- 4.831
mph: 144.33
1/4- 7.597
mph 177.69

Temp was high 80's and we were just under 3100' for the day. I did not write down humidity or BP.

Car is launching at 4600 and shifting at 7000.

These numbers moved less than .01 for the day. I don't know if I want to adjust any of the rpm settings. I am supposed to be at 5000 launch and 7400 on the shift but I like what I saw.
