We've got the new car blues is all. Still sorting out the chassis. Skip engineered in lots of adjustment into the car. Just gotta find the right combo that makes it happy. And no, no bangs. Despite having lots and LOTS of hp on tap, I didn't have to tune it super aggressively to get there. It fires up and purrs like a street car motor and is very docile.... until the boost comes in. We're hoping for some better runs at el mirage and are looking to change the score with those geese guys.  grin evil

  Skip, be warned!  Those nicknames can be hard to shake.
  I know I have told this story before but when Marlo gave me my moniker many years ago, we were fighting a seemingly impossible to solve bearing issues with my Early Olds.
  A few years later and having solved the problem I actually made three passes at the same meet!  Eureka!!!
  So I approach Marlo and asked if I was now "Three Run" Bob, and he says "Sorry, nicknames earned in LSR are FOR LIFE!
                                                                            Ol' One Run.............................. out...................... tongue rolleyes tongue
