This is true... there was a serious head wind and we were fighting the rain drops all day.

Track was well prep'd all the way down and the DA was +1680

Would like to see it without the wind. What is the average DA for that track ?

That is a very typical DA for around here... usually a little higher like 2000. Earlier in January we saw -4000 when 02Pewtersix took over 1st place on the bolt-on list. That doesn't happen very often.

Owen also knows how important details are to me, so he picked me up some new black caps for my custom tank to replace the red ones. I really think it looks much better.
What is the box with the two ports in your engine bay for? As in what function does it provide? It looks awesome. It really fits nicely and cleans up the engine bay.

I'm assuming you're talking about the dual tank up front? It's split down the middle. One half is blower coolant, and the other is fuel for the nitrous system.

Don't feel bad, I've asked Russ no less than 5 times what that box does!

Been very busy lately, so I have a lot of posts to catch up on.

Here's the new custom tank ARD is finishing up for me. It'll be half methanol and half race gas for the new direct port system.

And a month ago (post just before yours) we were just going over again what this box is. So where does this one go? Under the hood replacing the other? Pics do IOM no justice in my opinion. It looks so much better in person, and in the sun.

This is a larger tank that will go in the trunk. The one up front isn't going anywhere, as we're keeping the old nitrous system as well.

What's better than one nitrous system? Two nitrous systems.

Recap:

Front Tank: Blower Coolant and Fuel for 1st Nitrous System
Rear Tank: Methanol and Fuel for 2nd Nitrous System

Sounds good...let me know when you're coming.

I'm beginning to see the light at the end of the tunnel...

...at least with the performance stuff. I already have some ideas for the interior.
