Who's ready? Less than a month away!!

I had my trans went through, glad I did, I knocked a couple bushings out of the tail shaft. Not quite sure if it was the pinion angle or drive shaft?? Speed Inc is building me some new stainless headers for my new turbos and a couple other things they don't know about yet. :jest:

LME has the motor for a check over and new bearings. They said after a year and a half they still looked great!! They are installing a new Jesel belt drive I've had sitting around too. Should have the motor back next week so I can get the rest done, cutting it short on time. I know Bryan will come through!!

Speed will only have a week to build new headers, down pipes (new location), cold side, turbo supports and patch a couple holes. That should be plenty of time for Dan. :jest: He'll want to kill me. lol

I'm sure I'll find something for Jim to do as long as it's there. Looking go a little faster at this race. :secret2:

I thought they decided to open the track on Thur.for getting set-up and tech. and then practice was going to start on Fri.

Car looks great in white, we'll have to get some pictures of all the white cars in RS now!! (me, you and falcon)

We're rushing to get mine back together, trans needs finished and I need to put the heads on my motor, I might be running RS on motor for this event, but we will be there

I'll be there. Hoping for better luck at this race than the shootout last year myself. I was one of the few of us that was able to drive my car onto the trailer, but that's about as far as it would go. I had to push it into the shop when I got home to change the transmission.

I had a rod bolt failure in the 389. Right now I am hunting a crank, but should be OK for Atlanta. This has forced me to change plans, so we will be testing a new combination, which is kind of cool.

I am sure there will be some bracket racing and a few other non LSX classes at this event, but you will definitely see some of the baddest LS cars making passes. This is the first time an LSX series race is held in conjunction with the CHP nationals so I'm not entirely sure what to expect myself.

There is an event schedule that you can get at the track that will give you an idea of when certain classes will be running. I believe they also have the schedule posted online and it was linked in another thread. The run order should go unchanged though there can be some delay for oil downs that may set the schedule back a bit.

get a mother bottle and do it yourself, they are not too pricey. Just freeze your bottles and you can fill them without a pump. I never even pump mne and I have a refill station

Were ready to go! Testing on low boost went well. I hope the track is good so I can turn it up.
I will be bringing with me a new in box LSX tall deck block and a drop in tinted back window to sell. If you want to save a bunch of shipping cost. Pick it up at the race. Email me at crownmike1@gmail.com if interested. See you guys Friday!
