I'm just over two weeks left here offshore... Africa...

Can't wait to get on the freedom bird home and if the car is running, get some seat time on the road prior to the mile...
Exciting, cant wait to see how she does in the mile

I read most of your story! Very intriguing! I hope you have had some very good races and made some people look stupid! Ha! Love the car and
Build. I enjoy mine with only a muffler delete, I'd kill myself with yours.

I've had a few good races, and some not so good... It's the nature of racing...

In the cars intended realm, straight line land speed racing, she is very very good... better than I am, I keep blowing stuff up...

She does ok on a drag strip but really likes to feel the wind... 180 is starting to breathe, and 200 plus is the goal...

I honestly have no desire to make anyone look stupid, but occasionally I've made a few look, well like they didn't know their opponent....

Welcome to my build thread and stay tuned for the results of the mile run here in about 3 1/2 weeks... It ought to be interesting to say the least...

So, I got confirmation from Corey and Rob, that my PRO EFI system has arrived. The only item wanting is the Color CAN display... but that will not hold up the tuning...

Corey is going to try to get the electronics guy, Alan, who normally only works on Mondays, in Friday to start the install... apparently in addition to the many sensors to be installed, the harness is quite substantial...

I'm down to 11 days on the rig, if all goes as planned and then it's off to the land of fresh milk... I'm not sure what I miss the most working in the international environment, fresh milk or breakfast tacos...

You didn't mention cookies or cake! That totally changes the equation!

Here you go

First, the assumptions:
Milk = 2% Fat (Anything else is sacrilege)
Milk Temperature 34F (Any ice in the milk is a damn shame)
Cookies = Chocolate Chip (at the very least, double-chocolate chip would be optimal)
Cookie Temperature 100F (just enough to be gooey, not so hot to melt my mouth)
Cake = Chocolate Cake (with chocolate frosting...anything else is a lie)
Cake Temperature Pretty much irrelevant.
Breakfast Taco = Corn tortilla filled with scrambled eggs, bacon, cheese, & potatoes
Breakfast Taco Temperature 115F (A little warmer than cookies, because they're usually consumed outside, in the morning, when it's cold)



Milk + Cake > Milk + Cookies > Cake (by itself) > Cookies (by themselves) > Breakfast Tacos > Milk (by itself)

But honestly, the Breakfast Tacos are only barely better than milk by itself.

Probably the greatest post in the history of BBS.

Some of these assumptions are biased...

Yellow or white cake is the true cake, anything else is questionable...

So, by my reasoning,

milk at 34 degrees + cookies (chocolate chip with pecan crumbles > milk with cake> cookies alone> cake alone... Breakfast tacos have to have cheese on them in addition to other ingredients or it just food wrapped in a tortilla, and it's a predecessor to all of the above... Breakfast tacos... With the required hot salsa and salt....then Cookies and milk, cake and milk, cookies then cake...

Yellow/white cake is the real lie.

And I knew I was forgetting an ingredient in the breakfast tacos. Added the cheese to my post

Those tacos need hot sauce and green chiles. Then they will trump all this talk about milk and cookies.

Salsa is a given, green chilies are good but that's a NewCalifexican ingredient... I love em but can take or leave them...

Cracks me up when I worked in the Gulf, breakfast tacos out thre were over cooked cry eggs, some cheese crumbles, whatever meat you choose, either way under or over cooked, and a tortilla that if you could flatten it out, would make a dandy hubcap... somewhere... they roll this as tightly as possible and call it a taco... at best it's a distant facsimile to a breakfast burrito... and guaranteed to hurt the human BIOS...
