    Default Something weird happened...

    ...a snail snuck onto my engine! For some reason it knocked the nitrous out of the car while it was at it! Oh well, at least the car should run better and hopefully no more fires! (Three total with the nitrous.)

    I am almost done, should be on the dyno soon and then will race it in Spokane on the 24th of this month and then hopefully bring it down to Wally World some next year.

    Cool

    Last Friday I got on the dyno and with 20 lbs of boost made 463 hp....



    (The engine should handle 30+ lbs!)

    Cool

    Last Saturday, I ran it at the track here in Spokane, but first pass the clutch slipped all the way down the track (me being too stubborn, I stayed in it!) It still managed a 10.35 @ 128mph. (The 1/8th time was 6.61 @ 113mph) Once I put the new clutch in and make a few changes, it should be a beast, especially if I turn the boost up!...

    Took longer to finish the car than planned, so.... I am planning on taking it out for the first time this year (and the first "real" time with the turbo) on the 18th/19th of August up here in Spokane. IF all goes well, then I hope to make the last Walla Walla race of the season.
