     Looks like we will be extending the front part of the spoiler up onto the window a little and cut down the total height of the spoiler to make it look a little more sleek.  Anything is better than that. cheers

found some old pictures of our car being built down at Pro Chasis.

The rear end



Engine mock up



Funny car cage



Sizing for our pedals



The car- still lots to do at this point, once we got it to J&S East Valley Garage it still took what seems like 6 months to finish.

It is always the detail that take time and if you don't do them right it looks like a $hit box. You guys have done it right and nailed the details. Hope to see you at Elmo.

Once we figure out our ugly duckling spoiler it should be smooth sailing to get ready for El Mirage. cheers

We worked on the rear spill plates today and figured out what design we wanted to use.

Troy cutting out spill plate.



Two pictures of driver side spill plate mounted.





Both spill plates are patially mounted, we need to add a bracket near the front of the spill plate and underneath the spoiler.

Troy, something that makes it easier for us when cutting alum with a skill saw is to clamp it to 1-1/8" plywood and liberally spray with wd40 so the saw glides easily and cuts into the wood a little. It makes a cleaner, safer cut.

That sounds like a great idea, I will use that advise next time.  I did have to hold my end up so it didn't bind on me.   rolleyes  Thanks for the tip Brian. grin

We have never accurately checked the gas per run because of sealed tank, but we tried last year and it might in our build diary.  I'll check, but we forgot what we used.  Many dollars though. grin

  We never made a full 5 mile pass last year. Troy did get a last mile time of 269 with a coasting ''exit speed'' of 244 with no chutes out.

  Rick at ERC helped us make a chart measuring how many gallons and so many inches from top of tank.

  We have a 20 gal tank but I would never make 2 runs without checking level. We made tank large incase we ever ran fuel.

   We need to find a seat belt buckle, you know the old style that clicks together.  Our window net attaches with a buckle type and we need to replace it.  Anyone know where we can get one?

We found our buckle and a couple new pilot chutes at Jegs.  A little bit lower pricing than the above link. cheers

   What kind of sensors is anyone using for wheel speed and driveshaft rpm [or know of suppliers]?

   NO were not going to traction control [honest] grin but we would like to know how fast were going at what spot on the course and if we have wheelspin and where.
