we had a great 1st meet for me to get to know my new car  tongue

Thanks to USFRA for the opportunity to get done a lot done  in getting to identify the things NEW CAR things we need to address.

But we fired up rolled out and we able to get in 3 passes on Sunday morning  14? 196 & 227   

We are very, very pleased with the way the car handles and gets down the track the chutes seem to fly very straight and stable,  the brakes will get a master cylinder change to make them less sensitive, and we will make some changes to the gauges and their mounting.

I owe a BIG apology to the Dalton Jackson Mayer A/BFS car and people, I left about noon on Saturday and they had not ran yet, I know that because I would easily have heard them as their motor is awesome! Although I will not be at Speed Week I will be keeping up via this Landracing site and hope they do a real "rotate the earth" run.

Sparky, great to see you got in a nice 200+ run.

Great meeting you also Bob---what an awesome sounding car---I am like Sum it gives me goose bumps just recalling the sound of it coming down track.  He is trying to get me to do my exhaust like yours---but some how, I don't think mine would sound the same as yours---

I also doubt if you want and OLD b hat---I suspect you want the new B hat---lol

Your "old style" 7800 and the "new style" 496  are such contrast in style and sound---his is almost whisper quite---yours is goose bump loud---but I have now doubt that the two of you  will have new Bs some day soon cheers

I am echoing His Honor's opinion of the T&T  many new cars that will soon be laying down some huge numbers  whish we could have heard Nish get in a run cry

Very interesting video.  Wish the camera had been adjusted to get the instruments or the outside better.  The audio was interesting and very clear  though.  Would be curious to know what camera they used.  I think they are working with Replay XD.  Anyone know the audio was excellent
