Im soooo excited for you Robert. The car is awesome. Great build and sounds like a great builder.
So, after being completly hooked on the thread I get to the "shipped the wrong motor" post. My heart freakin' sank!!!
I was devastated. And it aint even my car!
Heck, I dont even know the owner,lol. But then, alas, all turned out well.
So here I am all caught up with this awesome build thread and dying to see some dyno results.
You seem to be "good people" (lol) and Im so happy for you.
It would be great to see you and your car in person at C5FII. I'll be in Phoenix but our plane doesnt arrive until late Sat. evening. This trip was planned beforeI knew about C5 and any kind of Fest or it would have been planned differently. I may, however, consider trying to make the trophy presentations Sat. night. Atleast then I would be able to say I was there.
Just realized, 500+ post...geeesh
Good luck to you in all you do. I'll be following this thread to its end.
Oh and btw, I was able to visit San Antonio for my first time last year. My wife and I stayed on the river walk. Its a beautiful city and we cant wait to get back there some day.
Wow, thanks for stopping in, you're more dedicated than I am, I couldn't go back and read all this...
I also am going nuts waiting for the results. I've been told to stop looking at the clock . . . . . . . . . . . . . but that is almost impossible... I usually count my TTTEOMH (time to the end of my hitch) by the drills completed... We have a drill every week, and so, I have four, three two or one, drill left... I am at one drill, but that isn't helping, so I went to days, then hours, I'm on minutes and getting close to seconds...I just can't count that high...
and if you arrive in Phoenix late Saturday eve, you should be just in time for the After Fest Party....
I think there is going to be a huge crowd, Savini is putting it on... If you manage to make it out, hopefully we'll get to meet...
Next time you're in San Antonio, give any of usw in the San Antonio thread a shout out, we'll make sure you hook up with us if you're here on a Friday night.... Some of us will hook up any night...
