Oh by the way  wink  "the beauty" sent their spy out   shocked under the cover story of watching Jeanie in her quest for the  MC points championship.
 He dropped by the pits to checkout the new beast--- Ms Liberty --
but I kept my eye on him and he didn't pull his spy camera out  grin

Sparky,

Don't know if these pictures will do you any good as I took them while you were working on the car. For a chute deployment shot, you might try the SCTA site in the results section, under pictures look for Stewart Harnick pictures as he takes shots from the finish line area.

Asking questions is one's only way of getting answers. As a young boy I was always taught that there is no such thing as a stupid question. It suggests that the quest for knowledge includes failure, and that just because one person may know less than others they should not be afraid to ask rather than pretend they already know. In many cases multiple people may not know but are too afraid to ask the "stupid question"; the one who asks the question may in fact be doing a service to those around them.

Way to go Sparky. You finished the build and made to the meet. That in itself is a win.

She looks good, reminds me of a fighter ready to taxi out on a desert airbase.

Great stuff, wish you and all the guys a safe run and return drive. cheers

THe car always looked big in the shop but now that its out in the open with the nose on it, you really get to see how truly long it is. Great job Sparky, Andy, Joey, Marty and everybody else who pitched in to get Miss Liberty done and out to the track this year.

That is because she is still a Ms and not a Mrs.   just a SALOB  shocked

We are working hard to keep her skinny and sleek track person not a field person -- a sprinter not a weighty shot putter  grin

Sparky,
The narrow "Top Fuel" tire which is a 2.5 x 17 Goodyear part number 808-102-089, as I understand, is limited to a max of 200 mph, although I have seen many of them run over 250 at the Salt. I do not know what the SCTA/Goodyear speed limit is on the new "Top Fuel" tire, 4 x 17 Goodyear part number  808-130-089 which is about an inch wider but still is made to fit a 17 x 2.5 wheel. Either one is a lot better than what you have on the front now.

You are right Rex  I have seen several of the real light MC eng lakesters with these on the frt end  I was in line during the hold and was walking around and saw this small light dragster-lakester with those on the frt.  I started drooling, then decided to put my cap down for scale--- cry

Sid you are so right..

I hope to be much better prepared for the May meet.  We have a lot of tweaks but nothing like finishing from scratch.   We now know what all we have to deal with and it appears that  she likes to go where you point her --according to Andy---that is nice to know
