anybody going this week?

we'll be running the coupe:D
Wish I could, but I don't think I'll have my car back together just yet. Borrowing Mike's old 12 bolt with 4.56's.

It should be a good night to run since the Lakers are playing. Last Thursday the place was dead and people got a lot of runs! I might make it out...:confused:

that's what we're hoping for.

Some tweaking was done over the last few day's to insure a sub 7 sec. run.:devil:

we're going to run it sunday at Fontana for the Antique drags, so we want to get it dialed in.

well it was busier than we'd hoped, but not too bad. managed 4 runs by 6:30. Ran a best of 6.82 @ 101.

There's a lot left in it considering the 60' was only 1.53. We'll be running at the Antique nationals at Fontana sunday. we'll see if we can figure out the 60'.

It seems to be hooking well enough to turn decent 60ft. times:
I think it's the powerglide that's killing the 60'. we know it's hooking. He did'nt use the t-brake last night, and that with the powerglide, just makes it lazy.

we'll see how the starting line is like at Fontana, maybe we can try the brake, and see if it makes any difference.

he put a 100hp shot of nitrous to it. We figured with that, we wouldn't need the trans-brake, but....

the converter is a 3500

the bigger jets are waiting for sunday:devil:
