video file is too large to download at photobucket.  I need to find another way, or shoot another video later today.  Video is on hold for now.

I finally got to see the car and hear it run at El M this past weekend.  The videos don't do it justice.  You don't hear many motors that sound as good as this one does and all of the pictures of the compressor, piping, intercooler are way off in perspective once you see it in real life.  Just double the size that your brain is telling you when you look at the build pictures. 

The cage is one of the safer looking ones I've seen and the engineering from the front of the car to the very back bumper is outstanding.  If you ever get a chance take a good look at the car.

Good seeing you guys again and can't wait to see it run on the salt,

Sum

Sumner I did not get to hear it run but I did see it in person and agree with the things you mentioned.

It was nice meeting Troy and the family.

Sumner, good to see you again.  I've always wondered what it sounded like from a little distance.  I can't really tell from being in the car. 

Scott is was great to finally meet you and your wife.  Sorry we couldn't visit more, we were still thrashing to run on sunday.  Thanks for the kind words from you and Sum.  See you guys on one of these lake beds soon.  Troy

Summner brought to my attention about running the car to get a picture on his number list.  Messing with us of course, but found some old timing slips and a picture of the car on the salt.



close up shot.





Same slip but a copy and it shows our exit speed after the tranny and then the blowers blew up.



A picture with the car on the salt.  Man I wish we were there with it this year.  08 is just around the corner.

Something we learned at Elmo was that we were having a hell of a time getting the barrel valve set close enough for the engine to run right.  There was just too much air getting into the engine at idle.  So we put the extra blow off valve next to the other one, hopefully this will control the air comming in better.

Hi, what a fabulous thread & brilliant workmanship as well, you must be a inspiration to many on this site.  Did you find the F.A.S.T.air fuel meter that you had fitted in you build up, helped you in your tuning of your fuel system also do you run on alcohol?
I have just purchased one of these air fuel meters for my turbo alcohol efi dragbike & I would appreciate  if you could give me some feedback on how you found it performed, many thanks

Well, when we make a pass we will let you know.  So far we have only run the car on idle trying to get the tune right, so we rreally don't have a whole lot of info on this unit yet.  Thanks for the response.
