Your perserverance over the years has been defening.  So far so great!  Wishing a bit of luck to go with your hard work.

We are done!!  Had a decent 4 mile time of 262 but shut down at the 3 1/2 after blowing holes out #5 and #6 cylinder walls.  Our top speed at the time was 281, there's always next year...  We hope. afro

Sorry to hear that. I watched your build updates. The car was looking good in the staging line.

I hate it when there are new holes in the block!

Sorry to hear that, it was great to get to visit with you guys for a while.
I hope next year you can get it all sorted out the way you want it and put down a run we know the car is capable of.

  We don't know yet and rods are top fuel type, but they said it dumped a bunch of oil on the track. After a few beers I thought, why should it dump a bunch of oil?  Checked the 4 gallon dry sump and the only oil in there was in the tapered part below the pickup?
 
  We had a time of 260 + in the 4th mile but was going 281 when it let go, car felt like it was going to jump out from under me at any time [ car usually feels glued in] and was never over 50% throttle [except for a sec or 2] I was just trying to not spin it and not looking at the guages, just ready to pull the chute.

  We haven't had oiling problems with this drysump system in the past and checking the bearings from last year
some looked like brand new out of the box and we reused them all.

  One breather tube blew off and not much oil on firewall. or engine.

  Its like the suction part of pump wasn't working, we'll find out more next week.

  Reading  Bill Jenkins book in dry sump section, he uses a screen and not a flat plate [like we have] below crank as he says the oil forms balls of oil and bounces off of plate and back onto crank. 

 Hopefully our GOPRO video came out and well try to take a video of data log for that run.
