Best wishes for a successful WoS, Rex. Sorry I won't be there (and I wasn't at Speedweek, either). Love the car and your improvements. PM me after WoS if you want a closeup or 2 on the front axle fairings on the RMR.

Vick,
Consider it done.your axle fairings are really the best I have ever seen!! Not sure I have the talent to make them as nice but I sure got the balls to try.

Thanks for the best wishes too.

Most motor sports are 99% good management & 1% good luck, it looks like you've got the management down Rex so good luck with the 1%.

Rex, how long are your ramps to get your car on and off the trailer?

John, Regarding the ramps I really don't think that they are long enough! Have not unloaded car as I would like Duke to be there when we get it off of the new trailer. I loaded it at home and with the new winch it was not bad but still had to jack up the rear end to keep the push bar from ploughing the ground or my shop floor.

Got to the salt last evening, went out this morning set up our pits, I am pitting with my good friend Steve Nelson, F/FL 221. Then pretty much no problems at inspection which was great, did some small things but should be ready to get some runs in tomorrow, hopefully at least 3, need to get some time on the new motor. Forcast is showing wind for Saturday so my be a slack day.

Just a comment on one particular car that showed up, Vesco's Turbinator. Man do they sound serious!! They did some mods to the fuel system which they feel is good for an additional 800 hps!!! and when I was talking to Glen I mentioned that if they had a 6 mile course they could easily go 500, his comment: "It may not take 6 miles"!!!! We will see. I missed the SCTA meet and kick myself for missing all of the 400 mph runs but if I am on the salt for the first 500 it will be so special! I wish them a lot of luck.

Wobbly, thanks for the complement, we are planning a nice paint job or wrap for next year to try to get it to look like it should.

Rex, above all, make it a safe meet. The car looks great and you and Duke are prepared. Looking forward to hearing how things go for you so post often.

Talk to Stainless about just how serious Rick and crew are with the Turbonator. These guys pulled off a miracle in less than a week that would have taken mere mortals several months. I hope they make history with the first wheel driven pass at or above 500 mph. Now, what color hat is reserved for the 500 mph chapter?
