I am probably wrong but I don't think they even ran against that number for a record.

Lester would only let him run to the three.

Thanks for the replies, I thought they broke on the back up run and the result was the 304. :cheers:

A few posts back, the subject was spinning and going backwards, How about the time Coddingtons wife went backwards right near the timing slip stand?

  She might have been advised to not brake when spinning, but when your heading way off course, toward something you should.

  Just ordered 8 Top Fuel pistons and rods from Bill Miller Engineering. 2or 3 weeks  :-D I usually order more for spares, but we still have 2 new rods and pistons + some that are ok from blowup.

  Troy's coming out Sunday and we'll be checking block over for a few problems. Such as scraping burrs off cam bearings
to get cam to go in all the way. Also to check if main caps come off and go back on with out problems.

  New house is coming along. Finished insulating out side wall studs today, drywall is on site, and maybe start hanging drywall tomorrow :-)

Yes, it is time for some safety equipment.  Ya think? :-D



Yep it's time for new belts again.



Time to visit Diest safety and get these re-certified.



We did do some engine work today.  Took the main caps off to make sure that they would come off and go back on.  While they were off pops worked on de-buring a few cam bearings.



Lastly we had to take the the inner cooler out to flush it and clean up the inside compartment.  That's all for today.  Much more to come. :cheers:

There used to be a nice wall poster like that one-- it was titled "The higher, the fewer".

Maybe we can re-invent that for a racing poster-- "The faster, the fewer".

  Can't believe the confidence that climber has in himself, no safety ropes, nothing but ability :-o

  Been carrying that pic in my wallet to whip out when an inspector gets to picky :-D

You never can tell about a climber's exposure when the camera angle is upward like that one. Free climbing does not suffer mistakes without severe penalty... unless you're just "bouldering" 10 or 15 ft above ground.

Tee shirts? How about it, Jon?

Sorry about hijacking this thread.

Send a photo of what you want on the t-shirt and I can make 'em.  Tell me about how many you want and I'll give you a price.  Remember -- full color photos are reproduced in full color when we do shirts -- no silk screen four or five only colors.

  Ordered set of Goodyear 2932 Landspeed tires 28 x 10 -15.  $255 each :-D A lot less than the other Landspeed tires.

  They are used for Can-am and Nascar racing so they make more and must be reason for less price.

  Ordered about 1:30 from Carroll Shelby Int. in Las Vegas and shipping out today.
