Looks good Tom, when you going for 7s :)

We should line them up one day for a nice off the line launch picture, at least I can keep up for 60 feet or so.

You kill my 60ft times...generally 1.51...this one was 1.42...best for the combo.....

This car is finished (except for an AtW)

If I live long enough...I want to build a 2800lb ride.

Speed Inc custom twin 76 turbo's at 19.5psi, LSX block,etc...sort of a goof build since I kept AC, power everything, full interior, etc.

I thought it was finished 4 years ago :)

I'm pretty sure you have enough years left to build another car, even though its kind of hard to beat what you have there already..

Josh Kreyer built the cage...I did the interior myself...although I hate cutting carpet...the rear seat is factory...the front seats are Sparco Evo L's...all are custom covered with the "Firehawk" emblem to match by a local shop.

Yep....I think to kill my curiosity I'm going to run at Charlotte this fall in cooler weather...everybody claims 3 tenths and 3 mph ....but with a turbo car who knows...may run slower....lol...

You guys came down to Bristol for the GM Hightech race....what do you think?

Gah, it was all calm then it sounded like armageddon was coming when you were stalling up to stage. Sick!

SWEET. Your car leaves real well. What were your trans temps after staging? Sounded like you were just laying on the converter during the burnout.
