We got the car back to it's home today.  We unloaded it, took the dyno tires off and replaced them with our race tires.  We also took off the front wheels so we could mount our new tires on them.  We did get a few pulls today and sorted out the water injection.  The torque numbers were 2139 and 2192 for hp.  This was less than before but this was only at 5400 rpms.  These numbers are good enough for now, the real test while be on the great white dyno on the 14th.  I'll try to post one or two videos later tonight. :cheers:

 We made more dyno runs today and made some impresive hp using the water injection, but the sound vibration is causing the dyno to shut off early, it was so bad that it was vibrating the plugs out of the plywood up in the cieling.
  The power with the water injection came in sooner and cooled the exhaust temp down 100-150 deg.
   We now have the car back in the barn and put the 2222 goodyears on and will be installing the new frontrunners tomorrow.

We are a little behind schedual.  I noticed that the header on the driver side had some cracked welds at a couple braces.  We took them off had a thicker weld put back on and added another brace closer to the end of the pipes.  The headers are now back on, with a few more things to do and then we can load the truck and the car. :cheers:

Fixed the dzus fasteners on the front end and the hood today.  Made side skirts for the space above the headers.  More cosmetics to do. :mrgreen:

Still not ready!  Tinting windows is no fun, but for our first try we did pretty good.  I'm just glad we weren't doing the inside.  Tomorrow we get to put the numbers and class lettering on, and then start packing.   :mrgreen:

We got the truck all loaded up, still need to do a little touch up stuff on the head light, then wash and load the car and trailer. We will be ready to roll early Thursday morning. :cheers:

Mike, I don't have the rule book with me.  If your refering to tint on the inside, we already have it there.  If not tell me what you are hinting at, quickly we leave soon. :-o

Troy, I think that's what he was hinting at. I checked the rule book for you, and it says that tinting is required on BOTH sides of the glass.

See you guys up there!!! Have a safe trip!!! I'll be watching for you and listening for a 300 #       :cheers:

thanks for the response Ryan.  I was just glad the inside was already done.  The rear window would have been a big pain in the butt. :-D. Mike thanks for looking out for us. :cheers:
