Happy Birthday, Wayno
At my age, birthdays are just another day times 365. As long as I feel good, so far, I'm good to go. smiley smiley

Wayno, I made a dragon fly B'Day card for you but before I could mail it, it flew away.

It got hit by an early Ford, stuck to the horn cover and went down the road.

At least I remembered you.

Yesterday I took the Tank for a test drive. I sorted out the problem I had at the November El Mirage meet of no high gear in my C-4. Turned out to be a linkage thing. I swapped the gears in my quickchange to bring the ratio waaaaaaay down so I could make a low speed pass and still get into 3rd. Everything went off without a hitch.  grin As it stands I think I'm just going to get ready for Speedweek. I'd like to run El Mirage but at 6 mpg in Gus's truck the way they have gas prices these days I think I'll put the money in the car.  rolleyes I'll still go but in a more economical vehicle. I'm relieved a bout the trans.  cheers Wayno

Test drive.

 tongue

Do you realize how lucky you are to have access to a space big enough to test drive a bellytank?

So how did it pull?
