More tape...

There are several areas that were not taped off, Forgot...

But it handled so well and the fluid up the windshield proved to me that the ground effect is working... So, We'll probably go back the way we were...The under panning is still there front and rear...

Okay. I wasn't sure if you guys had any plans to try and create a more permanent solution that would allow for attachment and detachment of the panels you used in front of the headlights to prevent shark-toothing...

Nah, I like to be able to put her back to completely stock looking....

So, I have three potential dates for a front end alignment...at BlackJack Speed Shop, in San Antonio with Pete from Pedders there to give the specs and possibly corner weight it if need be...

Hopefully the new wheels and tires will be on the car then...

I need to find some 12 y/o's with the proper equipment... They could rig up a hotspot and live feeds... but we'll post it as fast as we can... may take some editing time as there is a lot of down time sitting in the car waiting to go,,,, and then time driving back to the pit area...

I believe she'll do just fine...

I forgot to mention that we did some adjusting on my shifter, add one inch of throw forward since the shift boot was binding... and we ran a hard wire for my GPS... so I'll have accurate speed readings all the way to Plaid fast and back... The digital speedo only goes to 167 mph and so now i'll be able to determine how fast I am at any point....

I got a precursor of it today.. Wind was howling here all day long.. Neighbor lost a huge section of shingles from his roof and we lost some individual shingles... Straight line winds just flat hauling ass...

I was driving to the shop in them and it was literally blowing the car all over the road...

This was in West Texas, but is indicative of the winds...

It was very windy. I was driving my SUV to and from work and that thing is like a massive wind sail.

Made the drive fun

I've seen a 95,000 ton displacement drill ship blown sideways off a well location by a microburst.... Big train wreck...

You ever see a moose stuck on a power line?



When a contractor is stringing wire, they run it through these giant "dolleys" at each structure and the wire sags all the way down to the ground before they use a winch to bring the cable up to its design tension. Well, when the contractor started running the winch, apparently a moose got its antlers caught on that wire while it was "loose" and when the winch pulled the wire tight, the moose went up in the air with it.

The moose died.

The 22nd, 23rd and 24th.... I'll be there on the thursday the 21st... Friday or Saturday should be good if you want to come over... I'll run on Sunday only if needed or if the car is feeling really frisky... I hope my first run will have the record and my AA license, then it's katy bar the door... I will probably make a run Sunday morning just because...

Brother Tim, that would be amazing, but I certainly understand... If life changes and you decide to, let me know and I'll pick you up at the airport....

I remain amazed at the number of people that have stated they will be there to watch me run... Even a couple of guys I work with offshore that have never seen the car... Severl of them have asked for T-shirts with the mph on it... My current shirt is 190+... I'm hoping for my next one to be 220+... Time will tell...
