Race gas, pulled the carb. when we got home from El  M in Nov. and dumped all the fuel as well as drained the tank.

chasing "stuff" all day  got the fire bottles weighed and tags for them---Andy and I spent 3 hours on niggling things---

WE HAVE A RACE CAR READY FOR INSPECTION!!!!

We mad up a parts list for me to chase before John comes over around 10:00 am  to put the skin and transport tires on Ms Liberty and get her ready for her 2nd trailer ride..

Sparky, looking forward to seeing you again in a couple of days!
With sufficient thrust, pigs fly just fine. However, this is not necessarily a good idea. It is hard to be sure where they are going to land, and it could be dangerous sitting under them as they fly overhead. -- RFC 1925

You can't make a race horse out of a pig. But if you work hard enough at it you can make a mighty fast pig. - Bob Akin

As I remember, Sparky, when you took your car to EM for a first inspection - you had a fine time and got good information on what needed doing.  Let's hope that this time all they do is look it over and smile and tell you it's ready to go.  Best wishes -- and have a blast.  Be safe, too! :-D :-D

After our first inspection we had 3 things we needed to address:
1.  I failed to put the battery cut off at one end of the car or the other---it is now on the very back of the car
2.  I had new fire bottles and did not think they need cert. tags--as mentioned I got the bottles weighed and both bottles now have tags attached.
3.  one of the inspectors asked about having a cross member right up against ones tail bone---well that part of the cross member that stuck up above the 1/4" plate that is my drivers seat--- is no more.

We still have to do all of our new car staged runs:
under 150 both chutes out--then we will see what the guys would like to see next---goal for the weekend ---2 line qualified :cheers:
