Now I gotta buy a longer trailer just to borrow your car!! lol
I'm not quit sure how that auto pilot thing works though :?

That's really neat and well done.

Where did you get (or how did you make) the labeled heat shrink? That's really neat.
I just use a label gun and clear heat shrink.

Thanks guys !!!

After early April testing, I finally got to race it a few weeks ago. Got rained out at 3 cars, would of really liked to of kept running, car is very good and drive on that day wasnt to shabby either

I decided after testing that it was a touch faster then I wanted it to be (7.49 and faster require a hans and 15 suit in nhra) I added a Mono Strut Wing and Swapped from 33.5 rear tires to a 34.5 tire. My plan didnt work out as well as I had hoped but car repeats great !! Went [email protected], have yet to run 1/4 but I am affraid its still going to be faster then I want it to be. Weighed in at 1975lbs after a run, the nice part about that is. I have 50lbs (wing and nitrous) that I can unbolt. Here is a few pics of the wing, I really think it set it off !!

Nice!!

Are those boards something you made or did you get them from Randy and Leash Electronics?

I ordered 2 nos timers from Randy and they really clean up the wiring and make it simple.
