Good news, Daryl. I have to add a bit to mine to block off the underside airflow but it looks easy. (famous last words)  :-D

I see that the friendly Photobucket people are now holding all of my pics hostage so I have to reload them individually. Not sure what other hosting service to use. Tyring our Google Photos for now.  Advice???

I spent the long weekend with my friends in Nashville working on getting the car ready. Erin from Carma Performance did a helluva job tuning the engine. Knowing that the conditions are sketchy and everything on the car except the lower door jambs and rear quarters is new (literally!) we didn't want to set it on kill. Still, Erin got a solid 1241 RWHP out of it at 12 psi on 91 octane pump gas from the local Shell station. We will run the race gas on site to start out in the Gas class and it is nice to have little extra octane for safety.

Brought the car back to Dallas yesterday and now I have 3 weeks of work to get it ready, in about 8 days....

Borrowed some 3.30 gears from Kris Henderson (200mph  Jaguar MkIII) to keep the speed from getting out of control on the dyno. Peak power is at 6800 and we have a 7000rpm progressive rev limiter on it.

getting ready for WF. As I am now taking both the car and the SC-BG100 scooter, I have run out of room on my 18' open trailer. So now we have the combo pushbar/scooter transport unit all set up

Don't know why the pictures keep disappearing from here.

Anyhow, we swapped out the non-functional old clutch with a shiny new Boninfante clutch this weekend. Love it!

Isn't she pretty now?



It's a far cry from this one from 4 years ago.

Several of us are meeting Daryl in Arkansas next month to run the mile race there. I am really excited to see this car move under it's own power.
