The trip to Loring was an adventure to say the least....!!!!

Me, Bradley and Brooke Everhart headed out on Wednesday around 6pm, arrived at Presque Isle on Thursday at 11pm.

Tech on Friday went great, after 3 inspectors crawled (and some drooled) all over the Stude we got OK'd to 200+

First run was the Mandatory track rookie drop one license class run, I was to keep it below 150.... oh well I ran 153 for my shakedown pass,, all was straight and smooth,, handled well even in a little angled head wind.

Second run was the parachute run,, was told to  go over 160 and below 170...  Ran good hit the chip just past the mile marker,, pulled chute early (166 on GPS). went thru the traps for a 162.xxx pass,,, man that chute was fun.

Because I was on the 8200 chip just past the mile,,, I decided to change rear gears,,, Bradley slid under the car and took out the 365 gears and put in the 340's... my chart said that should get me 178...

Made a pass (with a driver error bucking coughing take off)  I hate that clutch... charged hard hit all my shift point exactly and went thru the traps at  175.25o and man did the chute work great again,,, it was fun ONCE I GOT MY BREATH BACK... went thru the traps at 8150 rpms,,, so if I had have had a better start that could have been a 178 or so pass..

All in all I was very pleased and I got my "B" License too.

the only next taller gear I had was to tall for a standing start.. so we called it a day and loaded for home about 3pm.

Hope to have some pics soon.

That's fantastic Charles Darlin'!!  All that hard work (and shingles) paid off!!  So, are you and Mrs. Charles Darlin' coming to the salt?  Did the car live up to her "unofficial" name?  Of course, it probably won't matter what you name her now, Glen and I will probably always call her the "Satin Lady"  !!   grin   Cheeky, huh!!

Anyway, congratulations on a successful shakedown!!

Charles --

The best way to set up those hydraulic throw-out bearings is to set them up on a shelf in the garage and install mechanical linkage.  With the proper ratio, it's more durable, reliable and easier to fix in the field.

Charles, I think everyone following this build were riding with on that first run. I know how you must have felt after all of the hard work and endless hours spent. The chute run must have got your attention as well, They do there job. Congrats and thankls for sharing the build with all of us. The salt is next.

I must humbly say (and I am not a humble guy)  all of you here on LR.com have been so helpful and supportive. your interest and friendship helped make the long days, hard work and tons of cash all worth it,,

I forgot to turn hook up the in car camera in all the excitement,,, sorry you all could not "ride along" with me.... but ask anyone,, the Stude has an "attitude" she sounded strong,, I just hate that clutch. !!

A 2 x 12 push board with the center 15" above the ground is all I need,,,

Talk soon,

Charles

Charles-the car sounded badass when you left the line, and she pulled strong and clean through each gear.
That all on top of being a beautiful and well executed car(I'm very jealous).
I can't wait to see that car run with a big motor, that chassis is just beggin for more power.
