He will get a handle on it..anyone that doesn't know this car he drives it. He basically broke the engine in driving to Rocky Mountain Dragweek. Later this year he will be driving from Alberta to Georgia? to start Dragweek!

My mine set, being a bracket racer for years, was being consistent, I get the whole deal of being able to drive it 1000 + miles then run a number. Sounds like allot more fun then bracket racing. My only fear what happens if you break down
and canít fix it and your 1000 miles away from home. Iíd be a nervous wreck thinking about that..shit happening.

He was testing the new set up. Since he went turbo the car is making way more power. I spoke to him, he can't hook that's the problem. He will be good for drag week. This was a test session. He ran 9.73 as a best spinning like mad.
Car is a beast!!!

One thing I notice about Turbo cars they all seem to over power the chassis. Iíll
Say one thing it take balls to drive 3000 miles when itís your only means of transportation. Iíll bet on the street they donít hook at all.

It is a challenge on the street to hook, can't say I am there yet, but my car is working better. When I had the stick, it would unload the suspension every gear, even 3rd over 90 mph would spin.

Iíve been trying to put my finger on it, I think with a stock type chassis thereís always going to be a issue getting it to hook. Specially on the street Be interesting see what that Ford has for suspension do you know if itís a leaf spring car.

Trying to get any car to hook on a dusty dirty road is next to impossible. Don't matter what suspension or tires.

One thing he said 350 CFM CNC Wide Port by Dave B. Don’t think he realize it but a 350 CFM E-Head isn’t a Wide Port.

PS: Unless it is and he misquoted the CFM
