Tman,

That storm was so bad it blew all 4 Monster girls into our trailer.

Glad to hear that Nancy is much better.

Found this on Jalopy Journal this morning.

A flock of geese in impound. Two records and two hats for the roadster, a record for the truck. Both in impound on the same day. All in all, a successful week the the White Goose Bar team.

Dave and his wife stopped by for a quick "howdy", so I know they were there.  I didn't hear of them running -- but then, I was preoccupied.

A just released video of one of John Romero's runs in the White Goose Bar roadster. Note the AEM drive shaft dyno overlay. This great piece of gear allows you to determine the amount of horsepower the track will hold in each gear.

IMO this is an infomercial. Send some bucks to Landracing for the commercial you just released on AEM products, they are one of your sponsors.  "224 MPH Roadster with AEM Dynoshaft"

Asking questions is one's only way of getting answers. As a young boy I was always taught that there is no such thing as a stupid question. It suggests that the quest for knowledge includes failure, and that just because one person may know less than others they should not be afraid to ask rather than pretend they already know. In many cases multiple people may not know but are too afraid to ask the "stupid question"; the one who asks the question may in fact be doing a service to those around them.

I would call it a post from a proud team member who still runs race cars.

x100, John is a great tuner and that car runs smooth and strong.   I'd still prefer an infomercial over ego stroking a project that hasn't even moved under its own power...


I'm working on a better video but here's our first full pass in the #97 (Lee Sicilio's new Charger), hit the rev limiter at the 3/4 mark in the 5th mile, but this still qualified us for the record in A/BGALT.  Next pass we shifted to 5th and bumped it up a bit more.  Still learning on this car but I'm pretty happy with the first outing:

  Diesel, Not being familliar with turbo motors, I was wondering where the EGT reading was taken?
  Is it after the turbo cause I can't believe it would have and pistons left if it was close to the exhaust ports.
  Anyway that is one impressive car.  Congrat's, Bob
