Got good and bad news from the Boy's down south. It appears the the new car does not fit the Big Guy like we thought it would even though it was measured six ways to Sunday. Tuff deal to drive if your not comfrotable in it, so it looks like our new hired gun tuner and former owner of the car will drive for this event, no one knows that car like He does.

We got thrown a last minute curve ball when the former owner could not wheel the car for us at the SCSN #7. We flew in a very accomplised driver from home to wheel it for us, but the time we got him there and comfortable in the car we were behind the eight ball. We ran a 6.48 @ 224 mph which we thought just might get us into the show, but we got knocked back to the 34 spot on the qualifying list, 2nd alternate spot in the last quifying session. Again the SCSN's set another world record with a 6.43 bump spot for a 32 car field, (58 cars for 32 spots). It just gets faster and faster every year. Lot of good cars got sent packing.

Aw B, sorry you guys didn't make it in the field, but that is the stiffest of competition. 58 cars going for 32 slots is insane. ...And that bump - damn !

Well, at least you got to smell the rubber and race fuel - nothing beats it except for some PumpkinEater. Will post some pics up of the care package you sent me being consumed...

Happy Thanksgiving buddy.

Had the handy dandy PUMP-BRT-001 out for a second round of diff bushing removal. Actually easier to do in the car then clamped to a bench. But we got it done and the diff build is all set to move ahead in the New Year. The BMR Pro derlin bushings are on the way.
