I missed the fun last night I guess.

It's really cool to see you enjoying this.

I can't wait to see the final deal.

Noob question here..... Does the DIC only go to 167?

More later, but I abandoned my first run today.... I short shifted out of first and started rolling into it, got to 80 or 90 and she went bad sideways... Shot across the track to the left and almost got into the cones... Shut it down and turned off at the quarter mile... Looped back around and got back in line... Car is fine, so is the driver... Waiting now for my next chance to run, another hour or two... We'll try it again...

This run has to be between 205 and 220....

This is Robert posting on Dougs account... I'll post more later but the old record is safe for now....

I make a good launch and pedaled it through 5th spinning the tires over 180...
I'm guessing i was around 210 when there was a loud bang at the 7/8 mile and i crossed the line at 197...motor died and windshield got sprayed with coolant.

I managed to get her shut down and turned with smoke boiling out of the hood vents..small fire near the passenger side turbo... put it out with a water ext....towed back to the pits. Blown head gasket and maybe some burned oil supply lines...

Ill be back in march schedule provding... the new LSA heads are already at the machine shop pulled all the plugs and motor seems fine...

Oh well you wanna go fast stuff breaks...we'll fix it and be back
