    Hoping to get back out in the next few weeks. Don't know what it will run, but it has to be a few seconds quicker than the 16 second passes my son made in the fall of 2015.

    ..... didnt have a very good day. Had to abort 6 out of 7 passes due to it going dead lean when I shifted to second gear. Only pass I got down the track under any kind of power I left real soft with a 2.14 60ft then shifted slow and easy. Once I was in 3rd I went WOT to 5500 then easy shift to 4th and WOT again. Ran a 13.20 but timing system didnt show my MPH. Found I have a bad connection in the harness plug going to the injectors { salt n pepper shakers}. If I wiggled the plug the car would shut off or stumble just idling. Looks like the G-forces on 1-2 shift was enough to break the connection and the injectors would shut off. Every log I took showed 8-9 psi in 1st gear and 11.5 afr....shift to 2nd and it would go 18.0-1 faster than I could get out of it. Got lucky I didnt melt the motor down!

    Never got to bolt the slicks on so all runs were on my daily 17" wheels. All 7 passes were between 2.00 and 2.14 60ft which is better than I thought Id get with this much power.
