well guys it is the exact oppisite here for me, I am so happy I could cry.
For 18 months we chased problem after problem in my car with little to no result. In the last 6 race meets we did a total of 8 passes, including time trials. now the maintenance is where it should be , you know flush fuel system etc, also in this time of 18 months I lost some family, my dad, my sister, and my nephew. My dad was into anything with speed, he built speedway bikes that took 5 worldtitles, also built one to attempt a landspeed record, but he never gotto see my car or me and my younger brother race.
but today is my birthday, my kids are great, my wife loves the drags, car finally works, life is great.
monty python, always look on the bright side of life.
