Here is a little look at the J S Powersport FED. Took a bit to get it down the track. Everything we know about getting the Pro Mod down track goes out the window with a dragster.

Looking good Merc, This is my first time in your build thread. Love the dragster, what's it running??
Not trying to highjack but just wanted to post a couple pics of my brothers car. Our dad purchased Swamp Rat 3 from Garlits back in the early 60's when we were toddlers. We've been hooked ever since.

We only have a couple full pass's so far, 7.42 @ 188 MPH. Should go in the low 6's once we get it all sorted out.

Sweet Can't wait to see it run once you get it all ironed out.

By looking at your pic's it looking like your running injected nitro?

Step backwards. Put the stock wires back-on to eliminate any RF interference to the MSD 2-step module. See if that makes a difference.

Street Legals got rained out last night. No chance to see if I got rid of the MSD gremlins or to run the 11.

Running on Alcohol, he's trying to sort out a new combination ran 6.95 @ 175 shutting off at 900' at the O'Reilly Nationals in Houston a few weeks back only to get rained out. He's hoping for low 6.80's in the mid 190's.

Thought I would get a shot at running the 11 last night. We all got over to the track and set up and just as they started to call cars into the lanes it poured for 5 minutes and soaked the track so they called it.
