Time slip Tuesday

Post  David Cole on Tue 27 Jan 2015 - 17:38

Dang it, getting tired of no racing.  Ready for spring and some seat time.  Only got to race twice last year due to dealing with a long drawn out divorce after 23 yrs.

From the last time out.  NA and a tank at 2960 lbs.  Would love to see this engine in a <2000 lbs dragster.  If I could get this thing to leave just a little harder.... Laughing

David,
To help with the boredom, install the phone App...
Time Slip Simulator.
You enter both cars info from the time slip and get a live animation of the run from various views.
Great finish line driving skill training.
Soon it will be linked with CrewChiefPro software.
Check it out....

LOL at cool40
I was going to say sorry for the divorce. So between us we got it covered.
I've always wondering how fast your Bird is. You say its a ladder bar car. WOW
I have a ladder bar car too. Will be using TFS heads on my 572 next year.
If you don't mind me asking, what are some of your engine specs?

Must have had a pretty good lawyer.  At least you got to keep the toys.   Wanna PM the name?  I always thought it was just cheaper to keep her.   If Ide had kept my balls and made a decision years ago...  Ide be running a frigen top fuel car with what she costs.

I got rid of mine after 26 years, you think after 26 years you really know someone NOT!!! I lost everything but my tools and race car, I guess it could have been worse Crying or Very sad but things are getting better and looking up to getting my FORD on the track this year, I might go to Orlando in Feb. if so I will look up Keith and others.

I did have a good one.  I asked around locally then a friend hooked me up with a court reporter.  Court reporters see all the lawyers in action and know who is good like the one she told me about and the ones that are "idiots" (court reporter's actual word about my wife's attorney)

I came out ok I think.  House was 2/3 paid for.  I gave her my equity and she refinanced the rest in her name.  In return I got to keep all my "stuff".  Race car, truck, trailer, 67 Fairlane, my daily driver, all my tools, guns and various guy stuff.  Didn't have to sell anything.  My stuff was worth more than the 1/3 equity I had in the house.  She didn't touch my retirement and I didn't touch hers.  I agreed to pay alimony for 4 years, but it's not too much.  I could have prob got the amount knocked down some had we not settled out of court and went before the judge, but I decided to pay it and stay on good terms and not be cut off from my grandchildren.

Now I have a nicer, larger house about 85 miles away and only 30 mins from my family and where I grew up. It turned out for the better in the end.

Been there done that to. David was a good friend to me during that time. I hope I was able to at least return the favor. Marriage is a good thing if you you have the right woman. There is life on the other side of divorce. David you deserve it my friend.

Dang David, I printed off an almost identical timeslip back a few months ago. This was the first pass on a new engine combination as well as the first pass I had made in 2 years!
