Do you not run windows? I see the window net latch so I was wondering.

Many rules in LSR, we do run windows and a full safety net is required.  You do not want the exhaust pointing down, it will chew up the track at bville and El Mirage.

You can see the thrust/down force we get using zoomies, look for the thrust of the exhaust between 34/35 seconds in. cheers

look at 24 seconds---I think you are stretching you tie downs and are climbing the roller---settles back down when you back off at 34

   Hi javajoe

    When we first built 222 we had the exhaust parallel to the ground but it raised such a dust cloud and threw pebbles at cars in line behind us it was suggested to us to do something about it if we wanted to run at El Mirage
again.

Sparky look at what is comming out of the zoomies not the movement of them.  You can see the exhaust fumes extend well over the top of the car.  Turbos won't give you that thrust.

Chris, I was thinking about your combo and the engine can be done in such a way that you can run it NA, though down on power, with nitrous if you want to go medium fast and again with the turbo setup later on.  A cam change here, a head gasket there...Wendell just has to know that like the grand am cars it has to be bombproof and spending a little more now on parts will pay off in the long run.

Bombproof is his main concern I think. He is willing to pay alot for it as long as it stays together. Thanks alot Daryl for your input. Your knowledge is indispensable. Please keep this engine in your thoughts. I hope that I can convert these guys to RPM power instead of the other guy in NC. For anyone on here who needs a truly thoughtfully built powerplant, Daryl is your man.

Thanks also to the rest of you guys for your input. Anything helps as this will be the first car of this type for me to build.
  We have to see how money shapes up in the next few months but I hope to be able to make some sort of start on this car, this winter.

Well aside from acquiring the car, I have made no progress. My bosses told me that they can't afford me this year so I am moving back to Tennessee.
Hopefully I will still build this car in the future but for now it is on hold. Dodge economy.
 sad
I am still on here now and then but just lurking and reading up on all the great info this site has to offer.

 I still plan on coming to Bonneville this year, maybe with some guys from Tennessee.

 See you then folks.
