if you reverse the last 2 numbers that will be closer to my goal. Anything in the 60's would be absolute gold for me

Cool, just takes time. I crewed for a buddy who went 4.22. My goal is 4.99 since I've never been quicker than 5.80.

4.99 is a top shelf et. On a street car. Alot of people claim it but few actually run it.

Well, went to pick the car up today. Got an flat that Larry helped me with. CSR turned out nice. Everything flows well under the hood and isn't crammed together. Now wiring carpet, paint.

It was actually like NASCAR. With my floor jack and cordless impact, i had the tire off in 2 minutes.


Here it is looking for a ride home.

Definately have to get a new trailer. This old tilt has been good to me, but the car is too low for it.


Without the wheelie bar cutout, there is no way I could have reachecd the tabs to strap it down.

Got some race Jack's for the car to make it easier to work on at the track and shop. Missing one freaking fitting. Maybe I CAN GET IT UP BY THE WEEKEND. Going to start removing stuff for coating midweek so we can keep moving forward.


Got all the electronics spread out on the table double checking on sensors etc. Wiring is super intimidating for me so I will mount etc but probably leave it for someone else so I can get this done by March.

Either a 29 5 or 28 ttf slick. On a bad track a Hoosier stiff wall. Good track a Mickey T.

Got everything off to send out for polishing and coating. Once my engine plate comes in I will get the motor pulled and off to paint and carpet.

Starting to get some parts back from coating. Front plate and midplate is all that's left for coating. Turbo polishing and brackets still not back from polishing
Not going to tear down rear suspension. Until it is done.

Ceramic coated the fan shroud to so I couldn't polish.

Hinged flip down electronics panel done. Cant tell by the pic but it is hidden nicely behind the dash.
Now I got to take everything apart for paint. It sucks because of the hrs to put the stuff in.
