Been talking with Corey today... Let's just say Brandi is almost ready for the mile.... I'll leave Houston tomorrow after my meetings end, and haul butt west to Coreys ranch, pick up my trailer, then head to the shop to load her...

Friday morning, I head to Fredericksburg to meet with Pete and get her suspension set up ...

Then home and starting Monday, we button everything up on the interior, and get ready to go really fast... REALLY FAST...

Corey said the car idles like a dream even with the 127 lb/hr injectors... And he hasn't seen any fuel supply issues yet...

It is awfully hot in the dyno room, so nothing spectacular yet, but.... She'll go...
