Thatís what I was going to say lol. I like it though itís a cool track, reminds me of Dragway 42 before they rebuilt it. Dragway 42 is right down the road from me, I was pretty well raised there. I donít know if youíve been there since they rebuilt it but itís a great track now.

Yes sir! Their track prep is amazing from what I've seen. I'd love to turn this thing all the way up and send it. Gonna wait until the weather cools off some more while I fix a few more little things.

In the middle of installing this expander box and its kicking my ass trying to get it to connect through the can bus.whoever is in the market for a standalone, do yourself a favor and just buy the dominator or fueltech. This thing is a real pita.

Got some new trans cooler lines from summit. Will be replacing the pushlock ones that started to come apart already. I will also be relocating the cooler/ fan to the rear of the car to help with cooling and keep it out of the path of the rear tires in the event that something does happen.

So got the box to sync up but it somehow corrupted the tune. Will be sending the gold box and expander back along with a copy of the tune and they said they will set it up free of charge.

Had to order another 15 foot section of the ptfe line as a single 20' piece wasn't long enough to make the two trans lines. It will see much better airflow now.

Reached out to larry jeffers race cars and inquired about their doors. Will be purchasing a set of their carbon doors this winter. They are removable and weigh 7lbs each. Looking to make the switch back to an enclosed trailer and this just makes sense over the escape door tax.

Should be getting the gold box back the middle of next week. Trans cooler is relocated. After reaching out to some people that are smarter than I am for 4 link setup, we decided to move some bars.

Ic is now just shy of 58", which is 52% of cars wheelbase. Right around 4" above the ground. Should hit the tire harder now and slow wheel speed down on the hit. Attatch pic of current bar configuration, hard to see in the lighting but the bottom bar is now angled down instead of up @ ride height. They also suggested 6-6.5psi in the tires so I'll drop that down as well.

If this doesn't help, they suggested adding ballast to the rear of the car and see what it does. Going to try and make it back to the track next weekend!

Nice!!! I think it will do much better, but I do think you will need to add that ballast for sure after some testing for some 1.1-1.2 60's. Pretty cool to see how much effort your giving this and sharing it with us. Appreciate it
