Well we lucked out  we dusted off the roof air on this thing and it hasn't run in about 15 years-- it creaked, groaned, squealed,  blew dirt then lo and behold it started blowing cold air  :-D  next up is the alarm system

Calling around yesterday trying to get insights about one thing, I think I had a nugget dropped on me about something else --I will be calling a manufacture about that something today,  as to do with valve train stability.

Have you considered surgery? :evil:

I've had surgery to make both my legs the same length. Although pleased with the results, I still can't drive our lakester

We now have laundry baskets to hang on the tail feathers ---after a run we will hang the laundry basket over the tail fin and we should be good to go when we hook up the tow bar to the frt axle no more having to ride in an un sprung car for 15 miles at B'ville.

Looks like very low tire-to-ground friction.
Will you also be reducing aero drag with discs on the inboard side of the wheels?

As we get closer and closer to having a car that WORKS---ie we go through inspection, go down the track, bring it home and have less and less that we feel compelled to change- let alone have to fix

We are getting closer and closer to the tweaks that will clean her up aero wise and for the eyes. 

Yesterday I changed the chutes out for B'Vill and the several other small time consuming things.

Dug out my 30" Mickeys---we will not have to change the rear end to lisc. up---to AA  ---  YEAH!!!

if we have a decent track we should be able to run all out on a 3 mile and should be in the 275-300 range on exit if all goes well.

We will have 2 rookie drivers and I need to make a 250+ to lisc back up. Remember by the rules you go down a level every 3 years.
