Will the underfunded pension funds in IL and KY ever be brought up to workable levels?

I doubt it.
Taxes are going to go up at least 30% or some kind of default will eventually occur.

CA and CT are also really bad on pensions and general debt but (Presently) have much richer residents, but residents can leave states.

Can a state do different?

Read about SD being almost debt free.

From 1865 to 1898 KY was run so badly that in 1898 a new constitution was written that prohibited any state debt being taken on for more than one year. Starting in 1950s this was just ignored.

If you have the speed at 1,000 ft, you can calculate the average breaking G-Force in the last 320 feet.

Example Initial velocity @ 1,000 ft (estimate) 170 MPH
Took time to go from 1,000 feet to 1320 about 1.441 seconds
Average deceleration would have been about -1.1762 G? That seems pretty hard braking, but if he was just 160 MPH at 1,000 ft, that is only -0.5435 G ?

Here is the calculator I found:

Interesting topic, wish I knew the answers.
I just have a street car, so once I got to the mid 11's more power slowed my '60 times but added to top end MPH. Besides the car has no rollbar.
I do think the entire vehicle needs to be considered when making engine changes.
For example, is 10 more peak HP worth a loss of 20 ft/lbs in the mid range. If the converter and gear operate near peak HP, then it should be quicker. If your geared more for street with a tighter converter, than maybe not?
Since when I race it is just bracket racing, consistency is more important than running a specific number.
I try to find parts that don't create alot of problems. I have had several different sets of spark plug wires, all which ran about the same when new, but after time I have had them melt. crack, burn, have the terminal ends pull off, or not snap on well.
Currently using the Accel 9000 with ceramic ends. Haven't had them on that long, so I will see how they hold up.
Engine wise, I think many overlook using the correct length and type (diameter, material, thickness and hardening) of pushrods.
Controlling fluids like oil and fuel would be another. If your car pulls just 1G acceleartion, the fluids are going to flow to the rear of the oil pan, gas tank, and carb bowls as if the car was setting at a 45-degree angle.

Well my day went to custard , out in 2nd of 4 rounds .
1st elim was 31/3500da and 103 grains . Looked at yesterday and previous passes .
Ok i am going with 10.50 . Laid on the light for 0.080 , urgh , drove around a Holden v8 ute hard on brakes for a 10.53@117 .
Great i have a number to dial against !
Well that didnt last .
Rnd 2 DA3072 , dial a 10.49 against a tough 10.28
Crap not just a -0.031 but car spins so hard off line there is as much smoke as my burnout ! Literally
Fing hell !
I guess these Hoosier radials are just not working for me . I will have to reasses whether i import a new set of MT PBRs . I know the Hoosier is slower in the sixty than the mt for me .
Unfortunatelly my racing may be done for 6 months or do due to work issues . At least i have some time .

Tex

The Holley cable is CAN on one end and USB on the other end. I don't think you can buy that cable from anyone other than Holley but I might be wrong. CAN to USB is an odd duck, you aren't going to find it in a local Radio Shack but you might be able to order one online. I wouldn't risk it myself, just order the Holley cable even though it is expensive.

Collecting Snap On is a real thing. I have a lot of vintage Snap On, boxes, hand tools, etc. Most of it I bought new by me off the truck years ago. And still used everyday.

Yep, that’s his car. Nice ride. Pete was one of the long time members of the Tacoma chapter. Alway a pleasure to talk with him

Since you’re in PA.... have you checked Tory Shelhammer’s tube K out? Appears to be a nice piece and priced right. Was on a drag week class winner in 2019 smile

Several lead joints were fractured, cracked, or missing so I had the pillar to cowl joints and the quarter panel to rocker joints re-leaded. The guy who did it did a really nice job

Here's what I see...

1). The font of the letters and numbers is absolutely WRONG! (see photo below on how the '9' and '5' should look!)

2). The pad on the block has been machined. You can tell by the depth of the block casting above the pad that it has been milled. It actually looks like it now has a 'step' in it. The milling grooves are also missing, whoever machined the pad made it too smooth.

3). The numbers and letters are too scrunched. I've never seen a pad stamped in that manner. The digits were all placed in a 'gang' and stamped at the same time. The spacing on the pad in question is too small.

Here's a factory example...

Driving me nuts, tested everything exactly how the factory says to check and it for code C2112 said the 4wd module was bad, bough one from the dodge dealer and installed it butt it still keeps setting a hard code C2112 for the front diff sensor circuit. I even went further and checked ohms and voltages both plugged in and unplugged and such with my same year truck that the 4x4 works perfect (for a stupid electric shift anyhow). I still get the service 4wd and no 4wd, every time I clear the code it is back on instantly. I bought the truck at auction and whoever owned it looks like they were chasing the same problem, it has a brand new t-case electric motor. It is a 2011 1500 5.7 hemi.

I'm thinking it was repainted at some time, as the paint is nicer than the bumper plating.
Probably a nice driver, just the thing for a road trip with friends.
I'd at least have to paint the radiator black, upgrade or replate the bumpers, and give the whole thing a serious cleaning.
R-12 can be found, but a modern rotary compressor & 134a conversion would be better.

That is the same car,Freds parents lived in Connecticut, but he was living in Providence back then. The car had 22,000 original miles on it when Jack bought it. It had a Hemi engine in it at one point. Jack bought the car, but not the Hemi. It had a pretty stout 440 in it. Not too many A12 Road Runner post cars in B7 with a white top and interior. I saw the car when it was stripped to bare metal, it was a super solid car.
