Careful with the push to activate fire bottles as there have been more than a few folks that accidently fired the system at the wrong time by bumping them. huh

Also saw one of the push to activate style break off at the pin hole when it was accidently bumped sideways by a crewmember while working in the cockpit on something else.

July at Wilmington:

New stroud chute worked perfect. Pilot chute is almost destroyed by repeted scuffing along concrete. I setteled on pull type release(i will post pictures). The handle is mounted in the center of the dash above the switch panel. It has bout 4in of travel directly rearward.

I ran 174.1 so technically i dont even need it yet but it is there when/if i ever do.

Other improvments include -

gental massaging of the 317 ls1 heads. (There isnt much performance left to gain over stock but every little bit helps).

Lowered ride height 0.5in.

Added window tabs

 hood pins on the rear hatch.

Also i would like to say congrats to Rod and his HVAC Express gang for their new record on the salt !!

Next on the scheduel is air dam rebuild. The new dam will have a rubber skirt along the lower 4in . For loading ramp clearence it hinges up. I will post some pictures. I dont know if any of you saw the old one but this one will be much cleaner aerodynamically

I am also working on a CAD model of a carb spacer that is similar to the super sucker. This model is adjustable so it can be port matched to any carb and manifold combo. My friend (who does a lot of pro-mod engine tuning on the dyno) claims he will typically see 20 hp increase regardless of motor setup when super sucker installed. We will see...

I will install a new rotating assembly. The details have yet to be determined. All i know is i have been thrashing the stock monkey motion long enough. Besides...  there may be a power adder in the future.

So that is what is on my plate. The air dam is almost complete. Rotating assembly laks funding.

Pistons arrived along with the eagle rods and comp cams bump stick. Last weekend I pulled the motor. Tomorrow I am taking everything to machine shop. Should be about 12.? : 1 when finished. That ought to wake it up (or me).

Its been kind of hard to get anything done what with all the questions…”how much money are you spending on that thing?” “when are you going to work on my mustang?” “ why are you removing a perfectly good engine?”  “are those parts really necessary?” "when are we going to my sisters?" …ect.

Which leads me to the conclusion – land speed, it’s not a hobby… it’s a sickness.

Working on my door net. The way this cage is fit it is hard to get the net to seal off the area in front of my hands. I am considering adding a bar from top to bottom just forward of the net. I taped off the forward most line I can achieve. The buckle is in front of the halo bar and almost touching the windshield and the lower forward corner is at the firewall.

We have used conveyor belt material for the lower "scrubbable" portion of our front air dam... Stiff enough to keep its'
shape, rivet through and it WILL rub off if you bottom at the track with no damage to the car or track surface. Ours sat
about 1.25" off the ground... given, we have absolutely no front suspension travel to worry about.
