Yeah, that's usually pretty handy.
You planning on hanging the "hair dryer" back on there?

Sid,  I have some, what I hope to be minor helmet venting issues, to solve.  I then plan to change the axle & gearing for to more suitable for El M, install the intercooler, and turbos for more rear end weight but run NA at El M until we get the car sorted out then-- go play with the turbos at B'Ville.

I have a new helmet blower sitting on the shelf that I'm not using. I would gladly donate it to your cause if you can use it.

.... 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.... Rex

I can't find that tire by that part number using Google.  If you go to the Goodyear site here....

http://www.racegoodyear.com/tires/pdf/Drag_010313.pdf

....is it the 2904 on page 3 of that document?

Thanks,

Sum

um,
Yes it is the 2904 which is the front tire that Top Fuel has been running for the last 2-3 years. As I said I am not sure what the speed rating is, I do know that the older tire had a life of about 4-6 seconds on the rim at 275 mph.

Sum, yes the 2904 is the 17 x 4 inch Frontrunner the TF cars are using. Back in about '06 they were finding with the narrower 3 inch Frontrunner at 310+ the tires were starting to blister and chunk rubber. Since moving to the 4 inch tire and creating a larger contact patch they have resolved the problem

Well we are on to plan "B"  the vent system on Andy's helmet will not clear our "shoulder pads" but his G force helmet works much better with its "visor opening" on to working on using it.

Sparky, If you decide on the Henderson, NC thing let me know as I'm only about 1 hour away.
Can't help you this week as my wife and I are on a Caribbean cruise. We get back home next Monday afternoon and will be available then.
