A lot of running passes going on including us.  We just ran and JL222 shut down at the 2 and got a 2 1/4 speed of 271. :-D. We are lashing valves now and will run a little later. :cheers:

Dodge that sucker sounds good coming down the course. Ran over 290mph this evening, but sounded like you guys clicked it off early? Flirting with 300mph big time and sounds like lots left too! Good luck the rest of the week :cheers:

Slick, glad you could here it.  We got a nice visit from Freud and Brett in impound.  The good news is we went 280 in the 2 1/4 and :cheers: 294 in the first mile. :-D. The bad news is that we won't be able to back it up. :-(. We hurt piston 1 and 6, and we don't have spare parts to replace it.  Like slick had said early, there is a lot left in this car/motor.  JL222 said he wasn't into the gas that hard until high gear.  We will wait and see if a door slammer can beat that 1/4 or mile time this year.  We did see a few new contenders and some vets here that could do it.  We will have to wait and see. :mrgreen: We are pretty happy with the speeds but bummed that we couldn't back it up.

Dodge THAT SUX!!!!
I feel for you guys.
That is one fast car. And there in is the whole problem with this addiction(sorry I meant sport or did I), you make a fast pass while knowing you still have alot left in it, you just need to get a good pass.
I'll ask a bunch of tech questions after you are back and can relaxe a little. Have fun the rest of the week.

That is one baaad car, sittin at the two lookin through my camera I was amazed to see it comin so quick! Heard the 294 over the radio and dam near fell over, by far one of the most exciting cars to watch and listen to on the salt.
Worth a trip to the dust bowl in May just to see it go again.
