After breaking the motor last year my season has been less than stellar. Minor parts breakage and poor lights have plagued me. Ran GLSSA and the nostalgia event at Milan the past weekend. The back up converter seems much better. Made 21 passes. Friday night made seven 8.99-9.00 passes. Went to final 6 Saturday and last 8 Sunday. my lights came back. Driving the stripe came back. We’ll see what happens. Going to run 9.00 AA/FX index.

Wish we were there with you..For those that have seen the SM rod failure maybe this will look familiar and why we wont be there. BTW this rod had 6 pulls on the dyno and two passes on it from new.....Pin is still free on piston and rings still rotate..

Piston is CP, they are also new with the dyno passes and two runs. Rod will remain unnamed now as we are having the others xrayed and examined to determine what happened. New rods are on order from Carillo right now and they are rushing them but wont make this weekend. Already got new pins and more new pistons.

Weather is tough. D/A is the best I've run in,around 2000ft. 7-15 mph headwind. 60 ft is dead slow .05-.07 off from last weekend. Ran 9.11, 9.10. We are first out tommorow morning at 8:30am. D/A estimate is -200ft. Still with a 5mph headwind. However the wind switches to tailwind around noon. We have to declare index with-in 30 minutes of 1st qualifier. 9.00 or 9.25? All depends if 60ft is any good. At least the lights were decent .021R, .001 L. It will be a challenge.

I ran aluminum rods for years, hundreds of runs and no issues. Then a new set with 50 or so runs and mine looked like yours. That done me in steel rods only, and I really did not notice any performance difference by switching.
