I am pretty happy to have made it down to 6 car at the bracket finals.
Bad thing is I broke on the starting line in the 7th round. I think it is the converter. I have all 3 gears but not underload. I staged the car and tried to get on the converter and she went straight to 7,000 rpms. My lights came down and I let her rip. NOTHING!!!! but hitting the rev limiter. Hell, I didn't even brake the starting line beams. Even worse is the other guy cut a .090 light. My 2 lights in the prevous rounds where .003 and .006.
Oh well thats bracket racin.
I will get her fixed. I have a big race on the 29th & 30th and of course the Thunder Shootout on the 6th & 7th of Nov.
Thanks again to my wife (Kayle), Madman(JBZ Race Cars) and Thunder Racing for all ya'lls help. I couldn't of done it without ya

Daum Coach, sorry to here the bad luck, I've had my share also Man I tell you were just plain killing the tree too, those reaction times are deadly Look forward to meeting you and the gang at Thunder.
By the way, what converter was it and how many passes do you figure it had ? You do alot of racing so I'm sure it had a ton on it.

Damn Coach, its a rare occasion for Jim to cut .090 light. That was your race for the taking. I guess it was Jims lucky day. I dont care how good you are, it always seems like you gotta have some luck to win.
