Number 008 went to Cecil testing yesterday and we went 8.75 @ 157 on the third pass. When we get this thing to 60ft, its gonna roll!

Should have vid up later today. I'll attach it when its up.

I can't wait to see these cars dialed in. Maybe "dialed in" is the wrong words for an 8 second car...tweaked maybe.

The car has been running flawlessly this weekend @ Cecil. It has run a string of low 8.80s today lifting. Keeping it cool is a chore but it runs hard & strong.

I got with one guy that was shooting some video and he put together a compilation of the passes. I will see if I can get a link.

video here:
http://vimeo.com/47759977

The cloud on the last pass was a radiator failure last night. The car is fine, new radiator right in and back on the track today. You'll see the MPH drop after the 8.75 pass ... we are bracket racing Saturday so we are lifting.

Rear valance does not appear to enjoy your trap speeds...it left you after the fourth run. Warranty cover that?

It was weakend when we trimmed it for the wheelie bar. I have since added two re-enforcement pieces to hold it in place. It should be with us for the rest of the season.

Fellow racer Dave Connoly is running one in stock at Indy coming up...will be routing him on unless of course he pairs with one of our drivers (Joey Santangelo or Sal Biondo).

These cars are going to be awesome!!

I watched his get loaded up. His went out the door right after Boburka's and right before ours.

"Cool" just begins to scratch the surface. The seats they come with are very nice but still heavy and they did a nice job with the rear seat delete too. The door panels have the ambient lighting in them. I had to laugh.

We are running Super Stock A Automatic.

The N/A cars fit into Stock CC I believe.
