in Orlando?
Saw you first round and went looking on sat and couldn't find you anywhere.....
Yep that's what happened Ken we spun a main bearing on the very first run and it hurt the crank and block. We would have had the field covered by at least 2 tenth's and maybe more if we would have poured the coals to it but somebody else higher than myself had a different plan for me I guess. We are regrouping and headed to Braidenton,FL in January to make up for our disappointment we had at Orlando. I still think we can go teen's at 3500 on a big tire and maybe 201 to 204 because we can bring the boost in way harder than on a 10.5 which we went 7.30'[email protected] on it with 5 seconds of build time for the boost and at Orlando we had it all to come in within 1.5 seconds into the run. I'm also building a spare motor now because this race hurt me bad to sit there and watch the other cars going 7.50's to 8.30's and know that you have the baddest Heavystreet car in history setting in the trailer not running. Ken you going to Norwalk Friday? If so good luck I won't be making that trip this time.

If you get a spare motor the motor in the car will never get hurt again.. At least thats how it works for me.. I always bring ever spare part I have to the track except the ones I need... :smt013

For sure that's exactly the way it will work. I had a spare converter, spare pistons, spare valves and many other spare parts just not the one I needed.

Yea I remember talking to you at Milan and thanks for the compliment. Yes at Orlando your car would be legal if it has A-Arms in the front end or if it came with a strut front end from the factory it would still be legal as long as it weigh's 3500lbs I hope this info helps you out.

I think they had a strut but with a upper A-arm and if you can run 40's or 50's your a serious player. It would put you in the top 5 or 6 heavy street cars.
