Or first one there gets to choose?  huh

If fuchsia, then the hat must be a wide brim fedora. Gold front teeth are optional.

We had that problem of short ramps with some construction equipment many years ago.  Some 2 x 12 boards were nailed together to make pyramids.  They were It about 8 feet long at the base and three or four boards high.  These were put behind the front wheels to elevate them when grader was rolled off of the trailer.  We took the cut ends left over from making the pyramids and made elevated extensions at the end of the ramps to keep the back wheels elevated.  It took six or eight 2 x 12 x 8-foot planks to do all of this.  A cheap solution.

Not our best day! Chased an ignition gremlin all day and didn't get to make a single pass!!! Not really sure we have it fixed but changing a little wiring in the AM and we had to change the oil as all of this attempted starting really washed some methanol into the crank case.

Big thing for the day was the Turbinator knocking off a 482!! They ran 388 in the 2-1/4!!! The timing slip I saw gave them a 460 something out the back but their data showed them at 489!! What ever! it was really fast.

More tomorrow.

We fought with the ignition gremlins until about 1:00 PM then for what ever we had done they decided to leave. Engine starts perfect, sounds great OK get in line. Wind comes up and the meet is over for the day!!! So out early tomorrow and make sure it starts then into line and get some miles on the new engine, then pull the pin and see what happens.

The Vesco Turbinater backed up its' 482 run with a 483 which gave them an over 483 average so that was pretty special. Great going!!

More tomorrow,

Rex and Duke
