Things are good north of the red river... trying to motivate my schedule so it's friendly for Indy, but not looking great. You gonna make it?

I'm hoping so, but it's not looking good... Regardless if I make it or not, the car wont be ready...

My schedule is way up in the air right now... My crew is very possibly going to be making the tow to Nicaragua... and if I change companies, Who knows what it'll look like.

Time will tell but I'm not holding my breath...

Brandi will most probably not be ready by then... We have tons of Fabrication to do, and in addition to other cars in the shop, we have to get Kyles car going.... I would rather get his car going right now, and take our time with Brandi, not to say we are rushing his car... but mine will take considerable work and careful fabrication... and Kyle has been without Detroit Muscle for a long time.... 11 months if I remember correctly...

If you quit helping Corey Brandie could be done in a week

Is this one of the girls that did the photo shoot at the race track a couple years back? If so, she's... well... let's just say she is aging VERY nicely!

You WIN! I thought it would take at least 24 hours before anyone noticed the car.


Does it help that it is a fellow Texas Mile car?

I actually love those cars and offered to buy my wife one... She thought about it for a while....

That would have made a nice stable mate for Brandi... and any Texas Mile Car is alright in my book....

That Challenger pulls so hard in 3rd gear it is tripping the the computer into limp mode. We have the same problem with one of Richard Petty's personal Challengers. We have been working with the SRT guys and still don't have a solution.

Every special build has its own 'special' character.

Had a similar problem with my car for a very short time last year. That's one reason we put in the BigStuff3. It has no limp mode.
