Planning on heading up and making a few runs on Sat. Hope to finally get a few hits on spray. Any of Y'all live close enough to make it out, bring your car ect.. It is a grudge race. Track is always good and not too hard to get to the starting line. Plenty of action to be had.

Rain held off. I battled the chassis most of the night. It was hitting the bars hard. It was also having violent f tire shake. Track was like glue. Best it went was a 5.24 with a 1.23 60 foot. at 137 mph. This was on motor. Only true to spray it once. It went into tire shake before the nos ever came on. We killed a buch of timing trying to drop power but didn't get enough. I believe the track was too good and would not let it slip the tire at all. I was happy with it over all. Car went good and straight. Mph was good. Just need to get the 60 foot down.

I think so. It's best 60 foot is 1.16. I just need to put the 137 mph with the 60 foot. This was the first time I've had problems with tire shake. David Cole was with me. As well as a couple other good friends and racers. We just could not come up with a answer for it all. At least it is making some good laps now. It puts the fun back in it. I had to quit on them early my neck was giving me fits. It sucks to get old.

14/32 Hoosier. I ordered a set of 315 drag radials for my next trip to Holley springs. It is a very radial friendly track. That should be fun. Lol. Eveybody keeps telling me carbs and alcohol won't make power? I have been pleased so far.

My neck is giving me fits. Dont think I'll be back in it for a while. I've run M/T s as well as hoshiers I like both of them fine. I don't think it was a tire problem as much as a tune , set up problem. I don't have much in the way of expierence with the level of power I have now. I ve always had less power and spray it. I want to spray this one but I have yet to get it down the track to my satisfaction on motor. I'm sure the converter is making it tricky. We are getting closer. I just hope I can keep driving it long enough to get it maxed out. My neck is about to do me in. One more surgery and my wife will pull my keys.

I wasn't the only car on slicks having issues getting down the track. When they prep the track as tight as they had it sat. a slick can't slip at all and want to wad the side walls up and tend to chatter. I really did order a set of 315 radials. Just hope I get to use them.

I'd like to see you get it going. It shouldn't be that hard to get it down the track with that much tire,IMO.

Its not just Jon. Several people o have seen it run thought it was on spray. We had a bottle in it that one pass. It had tire shake and shut it off.
