    I totally forgot about this and thought it was long gone.... I was just trying to do something for 2017. Last year only a couple of guys were doing something here. The economy brought this part of the board to its knees and I have no idea if anyone even has their cars from yesteryear. Without Cat Jam and the routine discussions this is slowing down to a crawl. Thought we could liven it up!

    I'm gonna try to make the strip a few times this year, haven't been with the Bird in several years(and only once with the supercharged Marauder)... For me it had nothing to do with economy, just my sorry old ass is lazy... Truth be it known grandkids and other interests(Marauder[sold], Comet & Cobra Jet) put the Bird on back burner, several times considered selling it... BUT it's still here and should be running within next three or four weeks...

    Im taking mine to the dyno tomorrow to finish my tuning then Ill be hitting up Milan Dragway within a week or so.

    Goal is to run better than 12.50 on the 17" street tires and break into the 11s on slicks. Going to be hard since I built the car to handle the turns and daily commute instead of racing.

    That's going to be tough since the suspension most likely is not really supportive of weight transfer considering that is what you want to minimize during a cornering event.

    I'm putting a 427W in this year - hopefully be at the dragstrip within a couple months.
