NOW it looks like a drag car...Sweet !!

Can't wait to see how much the times drop with those. Especially the 60'.

Looks like I have to learn over again with the slicks on. But on the bright side I had my best ever 60' 189.8 and best ever MPH 115.6. Just could not put them all together for a good run. Here is a look at Mission Raceway Park.

A 189.8 60'. I will bet you were pushing it for that fast a time... j/k

Hey a 1.89 is getting there. Once you get it nailed down you will probably hit in the 1.7's. Glad to see you are out running Pumpkin !

Found some time to work on the endless amount of video from the road trip to and from C5F II. One of our favorite stretchs of HWY was the 299 from Redding to Ureka. Here is a ten minute stretch of it. Enjoy.

That suck's, but on the bright side there will be more to watch, then just this one by then.

These new parts from BMR should solve the weak LCA issues.

Just in the nick of time. Saves me having to fabricate my own solution. Saw what happened to PQ's LCA's.

Probably going to give it a go again at Street Legals tomorrow night. Might have more tire then horsepower.

Awesome! I still need to get some braces.

I don't know how long it's going to take for Pedders to come out with their weld in pieces. If it takes much longer, I might go for the BMR's as well.
