How do you like the Wilwood discs on the front?

I've installed them in the '63 but it hasn't moved under it's own power yet.

4080 - 225 ( )


Oh and Tom Cannon smoked me - three times technically ,

actually I smoked myself ..

The best I could do was 12 and small change ..
Dave ran it to 11.84 for me on a hot lap .

I have a lot of things to square away ,

Best Time I had in a while .. Martin was a blast.

If I didnt spend so much time cooling the car down between runs -coulda made a zillion passes during test and tune ..

Martin was a great time .. The track wasnt as sticky as we wished but , it was fun ..

Andy,

Tuxedo or Camo? Show or Go? Prom Shoes or Army Boots? Get on that diet and I'll see you in the next round.

Nationals came and went , cant find the time slip but car went a 11.80 something .. and it WAS HOT out. You cant just put a big motor in and expect to go fast.
So after watching and learning for the past two years , I hope to see consistent 11.50's with a few weight savings and some winter modifications to the engine and some more camo so Mr Cannon can become VERY familiar with GTX tailite bezels.
( If I had Toms rt's , I could put a 440 back in it , I need some serious seat time, so if I cant react quickly enuff, I hope some more HP and weight will smoke the competition )
I have some serious weight saving strategies for the winter. Hope to be skinny in the spring.
Wish I could play some more this year , But have to get to work on the Sunroof Car and pay attention to some other junk. To be continued Spring 2011.

Killing some timee here , well time flies, more family health/funeral(s),etc issues put a damper on play time. Im trying to be supportful and pay attention to home stuff and figures - weve also been buried at work.

update 2011
Decided winter 2010 that the engine had to come out.
Dave built a more aggressive motor for me and It worked out well. Except you NEED race gas to go anywhere .. IF you want to play on the street . Two times out a year is not enuff fun.
If you want to chance driving a race motor on the street for a distance .

http://s32.photobucket.com/albums/d34/DaveDudek/?action=view&current=100_7351.mp4

So it runs good but i couldnt leave well enuff alone.

New 8 3/4 with a spool
New cal trak monoleafs

The car is now an animal. More than ever before.

So I Get to carlisle, and spun the balencer. Spent WAY too much time realizing what had happened. Couldnt guess at the timing , BUT I decided to run it anyway ....

Guess who i get paired up with again fOr the slippery 1/8th , Tom c. ....... Almost killed myself on that track.

Couldnt get the car to run right and guessed on the timing. So i didnt abuse it.
( when i gOt home and swapped dampeners i realized i was at 5 deg initial- maybe 12 total lol... )


So as I look at my orange boat anchor that needs loads of race gas to run .

And a shiny convertible with blown head gaskets (
figures special order pushrods now necessary , knew I shouldnt have rebuilt the heads . )
(im sure Ill have it together at first snowfall

I guess Ill have to suffer and beat up on my rusty challenger ... Got the GTX's Polyglas' on it and they suck at high speed but they're fun for burnouts ..

Snow is coming .. gotta go drive before it starts snowing ...

MAybe if the weather holds .. Ill be able to squeak one 1/4 this year , If not - Im in suspense for a whole winter .

BUT Chapter THREE ( MAYBE i SHOULD CALL IT 4 ) coming to a beginning ... Another distraction, but a keeper .. This one WILL be streetable at all times ..
