My KB has two Tech-3 units for dual plugs & has one GM TPS for both units with standard GM wiring hookup. What model is your unit?

I'm sitting on a bus right now, so I don't have it handy but I think it's s TEC3r
I contacted Kenny Dutwieller ( did I spell that right) and he couldn't crack it either.
I haven't given up. As this thing seems to have coil drivers in it and I like that
Haltech, Motec and Delco all require coil drivers.
The other lakester, Wazavudu, has a delco off a GM V6 on it.
Finding time to do all the crap I need to do before next year is the issue.
However, we've started earlier this year

Who is it that has that canoe shaped piece.of metal that you can win in one direction and not the other is that Wayno? It reminds me of that thing...

In other news I went deer hunting last week, well, in a fashion. We'd had our Toyota Aurion for fifty days and on a wet night hit a great big doe, wrote it off....bummer...

Grilled Venison.

They're like rats here in Wisconsin - even in the city.

Can't swing a dead cat by the tail without hitting one.

We are NOT rebuilding . . . We are reloading.

I think if I was hunting deer, I would use something more effective than a dead cat.
And I don't mean a Toyota

I think I meant "spin" in one direction.

You would have needed both barrels from a decent guage cat and probably a hasty reload to dispatch this piece of vermin...

All of them and most Front Runners as drive tires.  I think the 17 in skinnys are not legal as drive tires

I'll just rephrase that
Does anyone out there have a list of tyres that are legal for land speed

I've seen the 2904 17's. They've been around for a while and recently moved to the land speed list on Goodyear's website
I also saw some interesting Goodyears on Valerie's Streamliner which came with an interesting story,

However, the reason I'm asking is, we have a new Chief Car Tech. Lionel West.
And at the DLRA Committee meeting on Monday night, Lionel said he had seen the old Chief Car Tech, Kiwi Bob, with a list of tyres that are legal for Land Speed
I asked Kiwi Steve, and he said they were all gone
Which leads me to ask a number of questions
Does anyone have a copy of this mystery list? and is land speed racing car tech run exclusivly by Kiwi's?

And yes I did also ask for three more toilets at the committee meeting. the thing about having a landspeed event 100 miles past the middle of nowhere
is that it's far too expensive to hire toilets, so the club owns them
