Slim, John and Troy, I can be a mail man for you. Celia and I will be at WF and spectating at Nov. Elmo meet. Let me know if this will work for you guys.

  That sounds great Brian. Let me know if you want me to bring those wheels. And you might be able to use sport car tires  
instead of landspeed tires for shorter course and less speed.

Troy:  Send a fifteen-dollar bill with them to WF, or mail it to me.  Unh, for this time (since we'll be gone) mail it to P O Box 1054, Marquette Michigan 49855.  We're using that mailbox for another few weeks -- it'll work.  If you send a check it should be made out to me (Jon Wennerberg) instead of landracing.com, okay?

Thanks.  Have someone find us at WF (up in the timing slip stand/radio announce booth) and we'll give over the shirt.

Thanks.  And -- I wasn't really all that muddy -- it was getting late last night and I didn't take the time to figure it all out.  But now it's morning, we fly out in a few hours, and I'm doing last-minute stuff like packing t-shirts.

If you have room, go ahead and bring them.

Here's a video comparison of our last dyno run on mechanical fuel injection in which the pull is only three seconds.



This video is our last dyno run before Bonneville and we changed and upgraded our ignition and upgraded to the FAST EFI.  This dyno pull was about 7 seconds long and we gained 800 rpm and 2 or 3 psi.



Here is our only video at Bonneville and it is cut short because the video camera wasn't secured down good enough.  I will be moving my mount elsewhere because of visibilty issues with the window.  The video cuts off before the 2 mile and I'm in high gear about the 1.

So how much power did it put down with the efi ?
Did it run better than with the mechanical injection ?
And did you have time to fully tune it at the dyno or finish tune it at bonneville ? Or are you going back to the dyno to finish it because I know you where really crunched for time.

Anyway the car is badass. I wish I would have got a chance to talk to you guys but I was leaving rite when I saw you get in line.

  Fast Evo
 It runs much better with efi,it was always hard to start with the mechanical injection and i had to run it so rich for the top end it would have a rich cutout at the bottom,so its nice to bring up a run look at the air fuel tables and no whats really going on and adjust with a few taps on the keyboard.
 We don't know the final hp because the engine vibrated the room so much it kept unpluging the power cord under the rear tires and between the rollers,but with the mechanical injection it increased 500 hp from 5000 to 6000 rpm and 28.5 lbs boost were they stopped the pull because it was lean,with new 12 gal min fuel pump [old 7 gal] and efi the dyno pull increased to 6800 and 31 lbs boost.
 Yes we were able to adjust the tune at Bville on Troys 257 run it had a air fuel ratio in low 10s.
 It is still hard to start the very 1st time because the mechanical fuel pump takes a while to prime the system so were installing an inexpensive electric fuel pump and plumbing into one of the fuel rails.[just ordered from Summitt today].
 Precision Auto is on the crew now and want us to bring the car down to do some wiring and things but still installing new intercooler i'm not sure if dyno is necessary.
  Anyhow getting ready for El Mirage in Nov. were we hope to do well.

We will tune the engine for El Mirage close to what our last dyno run was, may start out a little rich but we can tune from there.

We got the blower back from Procharger and it seems the new impeller is a little more polished and machined to a larger gauge.  We also received our new electric fuel primer.  JL222 has been working on the braces for the inter-cooler and I should be getting up there soon to help out and take some pictures and get it all put back together and taped up for El Mirage. cheers

 Hi Gary

 Troys at work so I'll answer for him. We tape anyplace we suspect or know were dust can get in the car [and still not break any rules about taping] we tape or silicone around trans cover and any holes we can find and we have a brake cylinder that sticks up through the floor that we tape the sides and around the access cover on the step pan under car.
  Were hopeing for a little rain to dampen the track otherwise it can be a dusty devil.

                            JL222

   PS   Put a Procharger on that jimmy run it through a carb and then you can run vintage class.
         It would sound better too grin

It's been a while since the car has made a pass at El Mirage, but in the past there have been times when the car has been completely filled with dust.  It was so bad once that I couldn't see when I went through the lights. shocked  Duct tape is a must for us at the dust lake. grin

My wife and I both got a chuckle from Remingtonís "make it go fast" video.

You do realize itís only a matter of time before she is going to want to drive.
