Cool pic from NMCA

Here is a pic Dragzine took and posted for the cover shot for the NMCA muscle car drags this past weekend. I finally got to try and make a pass and car went fast until it lifted a head. Taking motor apart in morning to check for damage and hopefully its just a head gasket. Car went 9.34 with an extremely soft launch of 1.60 60' and shutting it down at the 1000' mark after it lifted the head and rolled thru the traps at 150mph. Car has easy 8's in it once I get the final tweaks together but its finally getting really close to start hammering on it. Hope to see everyone at the Holley LS Fest in Sept.

Nice shot, and you'll get there soon man. I can't wait to see what your car has in it.

Even though it lifted the head, it makes me very excited to see what it will do on a full out pass as this pass would have been an 8 second pass if it had made a full pass. Chassis seems like it is dialed in as car went straight as an arrow and very smooth. Hopefully at the Holley LS Fest I will be able to see what it can do.

Finally doesnt look like a homeless person owns it. Looks mean. Your time is near... Time to show everyone what you've got. You def deserve it after the trials and tribulations of this project.

Its definitely been an uphill battle but its finally starting to payoff. I know people think its cool to build extreme cars but its more work than play at this level but will be worth it in the end.
