I cannot wait to see what October has in store for you and Brandi as you continue to get better at driving that rocket ship down the long, straight runway of craziness.

Glen, you and yours have been so supportive, and I really appreciate the efforts you have made all along the way. from quiet encouragement and guiding words to precise work on the car whenever it was needed...

Thank You Tremendously...

How did the car feel at those speeds? Was it pretty solid?

I assume you still have the fabbed aero panel under the engine bay.... I doubt GM ever tested the car at 200+

1/4 mile @ 140mph... you gotta admit that's pretty hilarious in an AWESOME sorta way

At speed, it was very solid, it was getting to speed that was dicey... If you saw any of the video, you know the launch is slow as hell... A hover board would have a better 60 foot and a VW bug from 1962 would probably beat me to the 1/8th mile...

Congratulations, seen the car on one of the videos on Youtube or FB when it popped up.

Report seems to imply you're still having shifting issues ?

I'm thinking some of that is a driver mod... and we are still going to set up the no lift shift so that when I depress the clutch it pulls everything down to a reasonable speed... I didn't have any issues with the triple, but we weren't spinning it to 8500 rpm... We are thinking trying to pull the motor down to 6900-7000 ish during shifts... See if that helps... It should certainly help with keeping the boost up where it needs to be...

Another issue we had was not hitting the commanded boost.. we were 4 -5 lbs short of commanded..

We will fix that by putting a CO2 controller on the waste gates...

There were also a couple times in 3rd and 4th where I wasn't indicating full throttle, going as low as 82 %... She was darting hard and I might have subconsciously lifted a little, or I may just not have had my foot buried in her hard enough...

We have some sorting to do but we will be ready in October...

Mostly a driver mod...
