Looked like Paja crossed into his lane and clicked his 1/8 mi beam. Scoreboard showed he ran a 3.8x so something was up.

Got out of it twice. 5.15@141. If they can get a good run in
they'll be contenders.

Track is crap. Looks like a no prep race.

The weather is all over the place, too, changing radically by the hour, reaching only into the 60s today and right now it's in the 40s. (Normally Vegas in the triple digits all day and all night.)

I think this website automatically resizes the pics for viewing, no?  I hope so otherwise these are going to be way too big:














Frank, looking at the pics the front driver wheel was off the ground by a significant amount and the passenger tire was still on the ground. Roll bar adjustment? Nice talking to Frank and Schmity yesterday, will come by again today.  Good luck today.

Biggest issue we had all weekend was torque convertor. The only one we had was specd for out 632 and this new combo makes boat load more power as it didnt matter if we made a motor pass or it was on one kit or 2 kits it still did the same mph +- 3mph . Last pass we made a swing for the fences with a 4 link change instant center change , preload and a more aggressive pre 1.5 second in hopes of paja making a mistake . But we over shot the preload as soon as the car left it turned hard for the wall and had to pedal it only because of that as it left hard . As I had to instantly pedal it and straighten it out and it still went a 1.20 60 .. With a torque convertor ment for this thing and a couple more hits to figure the chassis out its going to be damn quick on the small tire
