took the grande back out for one more hit before I take it apart for the winter upgrades. DA was rockin, i made some timing changes and it responded well. Made just the one hit as after I made this pass there was a 2hr cleanup after an oildown.

Street tire friday t n t crap but the old pile of shit went straight as an arrow.

8.03 at 168.13. same ole "250" shot I been running all season.

yeah it needs it, prob stick to 1/8th mile next year so far they aint said much. I need to cut the cage out and redo it in cm, get some more weight out etc. Imagine I'll totally revamp the car in a year or two.

Mine is mild steel and has a 7.50 cert.....just makes it heavy, but it will last a long time.

I could just add the fc cage and it will cert, the way its configured though it would be a pita.

gonna try and get a few pds out this winter, but it will be offset w a 2nd bottle and a few other items.
