Default 8.886 @ 154 MPH for Quicktime

After breaking in the new clutch last Wednesday it was time to put the bottle back in.

8.886 @ 154 MPH still on a single stage .026" jet.
The second pass of the afternoon, the 2 step crapped out and we called it for the day.

Congrats Barry (QTP) on another personal best.

Can't make any passes with it until the 2 step issue is fixed.
The clutch is adjusted to launch off the 2 step. Any deviations from that setting will kill the clutch quickly.

There's more races to come.

GM EFI at E-town, where I was given a wonderful gift in round 2 and instead declined it by breaking out like a total bonehead while my opponent was still at like the 1/8th mile mark LOL.
I even did this with an .021 light too.

That's a bummer Marc. You must have been kicking yourself.
I thought the EFI race was March 31st.

Barrys car is ready to run the 8.9 class competitivly. We've made it fairly consistant with the tuneup that's in the car. Once the 2 step is fixed, he'll be ready to go.

I just checked the "sticky" at the top of this section and the Website but didn't see any results from yesturday.

Only two cars showed up for 8.90, Bob with a C4 & me.

Frank Beck said he was coming but.........

Mike Beck's car is hurt and sounds like he's taking a break from racing.

Qualifying I went 8.82, Bob went 10.0 (he was having problems)

I also had a problem, AN fitting started leaking on pan oil scavenge line (swivel fitting)
Didn't want to chance a oil down so I just broke the beams in the final & Bob won with a 9.6

Next week Bob won't be there, Frank??, Dave Harris isn't ready yet.

Get Barry ready & come on out.

That's a race date as well but the first event was the 24th, there are quite a few of them in a row over these next few weeks I think.
