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

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.

THX Bud! I made another pass later when the DA was killer. Launched at 6k and nuked the tires. Didn't like that it slowed down a touch.

That's what I love about no lift shift on the Z.

Great Run... you finally past me on the Fast List but we knew that was going to happen.

Yep but I got a box on the way to fix that. To be honest I didn't think I lifted as much as that.

7.20 @ 194 MPH. That particular camera mount was a plastic Gopro tube mount, but billet mounts are available on Ebay cheaper then the Gppro mount. I'll PM you a link.

Had to replace a skinnie, one started to have a few cracks in the sidewall. Not sure why always stored in a cool dry dark spot when not on Pumpkin. Didn't want to take the chance of losing a front tire at 115MPH, but look's like I might have to wonder if Pumpkin will go up in flames instead.

Doorwarz was quite an event this past weekend. We had to settle for runner up finish after we popped a blower at the finish line in the semi final. JS Powersports would like to thank Jeremy Hanger and team for lending us one of their bullet's and all the extra help from numerous people to change the motor in 75 minutes. It was quite the show in our pit to get it done. Here is a little sneak peak of the event.

Yep to say the least. We had a hundred or more spectators watching the whole ordeal. What was cool was when it flashed up they were all cheering and clapping. We did our best thanks to a lot of other people that helped, but we came up a little short.

Although our opponent left early in the semi and handed us the win, we still wanted lane choice in the final, so we ran it out the back door. This was the run that started our demise for the weekend.
