John, how do you guys get sponsors like that?

I'd bet that 43000+ views of this thread haven't hurt.

      Hi Gary
    We have been dealing with Procharger for several years and when Precision Auto notified them of our recent record  at bville and also being the worlds fastes chevy that helped. Wilson Manifolds stopped by our pits at bville and noticed we are using their products gave us some t shirts and put us on one of their adds and will help us a little in the future.
    I believe also they recognize the potential of this car.
    The problem with the blower was some nicks on the impeller and it made a groweling sound when turned backward but Procharger says that sound is normal. Sounds fine when turned in normal direction.
    Sorry your selling stude as it has a lot of potential also. Hey i've got some extra blowers that would turn that 6 cyl into a monster.
     Yes Mike Procharger was impressed with number of hits.

     Were hoping for more major sponsorship next year as companies have alocated budgets this year.

Procharger has seen a lot of pictures of our car in the past, they know we went 288.  They also know we are using their latest and greatest blower.  It also helps that we sent them a video of the car on the dyno making 2100hp on mechanical fuel injection.  Then we switched to EFI and are making even more ponnies.  We have a lot invested without anyones help and I think they recognize that and I guess they figured there was more potential in helping us out. cheers

So, John -- are you going to be at Bonneville for WF?  We've got an XL Salt Talks '08 t-shirt set aside from you - and would pack it with our other stuff and hand-deliver it at the salt.  We leave tomorrow -- so let us know pronto so we can get the shirt packed.

  Thanks Slim

  Actually Troy ''Bvillercr'' started this build diary and i go by JL222 it gets confusing because other members that are friends and know i'm Troy's dad and directly connected with 222 car address me by what their use to calling me.So Troy deserves the t-shirt, but i'll take one too grin
  Not making WF but concentrating on El Mirage Nov. Hope to get raincheck on t-shirts at 09 Speedweek.

            Thanks again JL222 cheers

Well, that's as clear as mud -- but if you say so -- I'll go along with the joke.  So -- Troy -- are you going to WF?  I've got your Salt Talks '08 t-shirt set aside.  If you're not goinng to the event -- what's your mailing address, and have you already paid for the shirt?  Send the address in  a PM if you don't want the rest of the world to know it, or post it here.  And to pay -- the easiest way is through the "Help Support landracing.com" button on the lower left hand side of the front page, but a check or money order to us here will work, too.  I think my mailing address is someplace around here -- I'll send it privately to you if you need it.

There, John -- wouldja please see that he gets this note?  Thanks.

As for the '09 shirts -- hey, the easy way to get one is to attend Salt Talks.  How's that for simplifying things?

  There is no joke ,Troy [bvillercr] my son, started this build diary ,
John [JL222] Troys dad is me!
   Remember the guy that helped you pick up the shade brackets on the last day of speedweek? That was me ''John-JL222 age 68, not Troy-Bvillercr age 42  
   This post and the last post comes from me John Langlo-[JL222].
    Hope this clears up the mud.

Brian that is a great idea.  Slim how much do I owe you for the shirt, and I need an address.
