Well,

It's time and it's official... I'm signed up for the Texas Mile in October... It's time to see what Brandi can do in the arena she was built for...

Corey is aware of it though he is in Bonneville... supporting a car with an LT5 motor he built....

We have a lot to do but we'll get there...

Finish the boost controller, cut out the wheel well, design and install the chute mount... custom fabricate and install the exhaust manifolds... etc....

We'll get there...

Robert, I must say, the pleasure was all mine. Finallly getting to meet you in person and being able to visit with you, Debbie, and Cory, for as long as we did was honestly the highlight of my trip. Best of luck with everything, my friend!

There are a few more changes to come but that's it for now...

3.50 puts me through the traps in the upper 6k rpm range at 155.....3.89 would be perfect if your engine can spin low to mid 7k rpm range.....this is with a 28" tire.

The difference being the gearing for my trans when compared to yours... I have the ZL1 trans gear ratio, much closer ratio than the SS...

My motor is REV limited at 6900 RPM's... Though it's seen 7000 plus several times...

I appreciate the info though and will keep it in mind... You never know...

4th gear isn't 1:1?

Those are for stock transmissions though, right?

Oh and Robert, you may see that I created a video of Joe's auto-cross runs already. I haven't forgotten about you. I'm just waiting to get the last clip of video from Lori before I get it all buttoned up. I'm planning on having yours and Joe's clips in my final submission for the competition, but I'm trying to make them so they can both be stand-alone as well
