We're racing. 217 race cars at Atmore last night. A good friend recently blew up his 408" Windsor bracket car...so while it sits in my garage, he borrowed a 512" BBF Ranger yesterday and footbraked it into the finals last night. About 2:00 a.m. he spun the tires on an ice cold track and didn't run his number. Runner up.

I've been trying to get him into a bigblock for years, now he's thinking of buying the Ranger. Rolling Eyes

No mechanical changes for the car as everything was new last year but the car is currently out for a paint job - finally....Should be Grabber blue in the next week or so. Very Happy Other than that I just need new belts and maybe a new fuel regulator with 1/2" ports as my entire fuel system is 1/2" now but the regulator is still 3/8". My tranny is at my sponsor's for a free winter tear down, I only put 22 passes on the new rollerized C6 but Roy wanted to see how everything looked with some full passes on it using the brake.

Dragster needs some belts and the Emc 572 inserted between the rails.

My winter plans got put on hold with the Wife's sister getting in bad shape with the cancer and passing at the end of Jan. I trying to get my F350 ready to paint when the weather will let me. Then it be time to get the Ranger back in the shop and change out my front springs out and make some tnt runs to see how it does with the new frontend under it.

We have made some changes this year to the Probe. We added a third system (and second bottle), new Santhuff rear shocks, new rear Weld beadlocks, moved the fuel cell to the front, new hood and scoop. We should be testing in the next couple of weeks. Hope we didnt slow it down Smile.
