Hey Bob Ellis, Augie says hi but your a sheep shagger.   grin. They kissed the piston with the valve and burnt a small spot in the piston.  They are lapping the valves in and they are going to go for anyway.  They said if they are going home it might as well be in big pieces rather than small ones. cheers

Just made a pass and went 268 in the 1/4 and shut down before the mile.  We went 269 in mile and blew off the blower intake to the manifold.  Were in impound now. cheers

A little more info on todays run.  We blew off the blower tube at the elbow before the intake, also we blew anti seize all over the distributor and valve cover because some of the manifold bolts came loose.  We made a 3/4 metal strap to hold the elbow and the blower tube together so we don't have the same problem.  We are heading out of impound for the 2 club dinner. Will report more after record runs. cheers

Dad spun at the half mile so we need to requalify.  Yesterday he ran without turning on the inter cooler today the intake temp was 50 degrees, just a bit more power than expected.

We requalified for records run again, we ran 267 in the 1/4 and then we had two welds brake on two different blower tubes and shut down before the mile and still went 285 in the first mile.  We were tacking 312 but stuff happens and we sunk all the valves and don't know why so we are done for this year.  There is no door slammer this year that has gone faster than us or even faster in the third mile.  The only doorslammer that may have gone faster in the first mile is the Leggit firebird.  Were happy with the speed but no record this year.  cheers

Here's the only photo I got of you -- at the 200 MPH Club banquet.  It was great to see you all week, thrashing and running and everything else.  Congratulations!
