It was nice meeting everyone from this forum, there were so many of you that stopped by and put your face to the name.  Thanks again and we will run again in Nov. El Mirage.  We need to replace the inner-cooler before then and do some inspection and mantenence on the engine, trans, and blower.  Will keep you updated as usual. grin

as you begin to really lean on that ProCharger---your belt problem will probabaly increase---there is a reason why so many drag guys have one to the gear drive by TheSuperChargerStore.com  Congratulation---I was thrashing so much on mine I didn't get to say hello again..

Hi Sparky
I looked into that gear drive and i wish we had room to use it,i believe its about 13" long and requires a reverse drive blower in front of it, [ gas tank right there] We were so busy thrashing i forgot to check the belt,and we wern't running it as tight as ProCharger suggest.

This is the only video I have of the car at Bonneville.  I use this camera when I ride my dirt bike to take videos, so it is strapped down by velcro and it eventually falls off.  I stop the video just before it falls, and you can see the 2 mile marker go by.  On this run my tach was not working, we have a programable tach and we didn't know how to use it properly thus no RPMs.  Hope you enjoy. grin

I have to edit the Procharger blog.  The first doorslammer on gas to 300mph was the Kugal and LeFevers firebird.  Have to give them credit on a great car and the first on gas.  We want to also be the fastest car on gas, maybe someday it will happen.

Today we did some work on the car.  We drained the oil and checked the rod bearings and everything is good.  We also took the blower off so we could ship it to Procharger and have them go through it to be sure that everything is ok.  We also took the intercooler out of the car so we can repair it.  Once we got is out we noticed that there was a huge seem burst in two connecting egde welds, one big L shape.  It's a wonder that it ran as long as it did, on the last run.  Looks like we have a few things to do to get ready for the El Mirage final in Nov.  Will keep you updated.

  Well we didn't go as fast as we wanted but after all that went wrong some went right.Our new drysump system worked great,no more oil gauge fluctuations, Scott Owens overdrive worked great,and new FAST electronic fuel injection was amazing. On Troys record return run the blower belt was found at the 2 and 1/4 usualy when the belt comes off the engine stops running but the electronic injection compensated and kept the motor running through the mile alowing him to set record and get in the 2 club.
 We went our fastes 2 1/4 at 242 and 1st timed mile at 257 and Troys 3 mile time of 269 and coasting exit speed of 244 on another run [all with intercooler not working ] is very encouraging.
