Tire temps, no, tire pressures, yes... We varied from a start of 17 down to 14 pre burnout, and then went up to 20 trying to make them slip....

I'm sure it can be done, but I haven't managed to slip the clutch yet... It bites... HARD... I'm going to go to our local track when I get back home from work and see what I can do in that department....

Seat time....

The only time the tires spun at all was on the big end of 2nd gear about half track... She went sideways twice... just blew the tires off and danced her butt off left and right.... nothing bad or unmanageable, but you can see the track left and then right wall in the videos...

You haven't missed anything... I got a pre-edit view of them...

Justin is putting together a video and will post it at some point... I don't have a copy yet, as he has over 250 GB of video to go through...

After the last video he did for me I can't wait to see what he does this time for the Fest...

As for camera location, yes, there was one on the roll bar and one outside the car...I still want to get some close up video of the rear tires on launch...

It's easier in traffic than the stock clutch... Very smooth, easy on the body...

Justin, that's a ploy by Mindz to get you kicked out of the video competition...

Well,

It's time and it's official... I'm signed up for the Texas Mile in October... It's time to see what Brandi can do in the arena she was built for...

Corey is aware of it though he is in Bonneville... supporting a car with an LT5 motor he built....

We have a lot to do but we'll get there...

Finish the boost controller, cut out the wheel well, design and install the chute mount... custom fabricate and install the exhaust manifolds... etc....

We'll get there...
