THANKS DAMON!!!

The tires are 32-15-15. Just a little bigger than the 28-9-15!!
I can't wait till next weekend to get this thing down the track. The chassis guy has had the car since Nov. He does awesome work and I am sure that I won't be dissappointed!!

Thanks again Damon!!

He had to lower the shock brackets twoo inches in the rear. It looked really bad at first setup. We also had all the tin work powder coated gloss black and it looks great!! The powder coater wants to see the car after we pick it up. They want to see what all those pretty panels are going in.

Chris,

Unfortunatley the car will be down in FL. I really had hoped it would be ready but no dice. I do thank you all for the kinds words. I have really been itchin to get this thing back!! Can't wait for some 8 second time slips. I am pretty sure we will bring it out for the Oct. race in Bowling Green though.

Well, just got back yesterday from testing!!! I love that car even more!!!!
First pass out I left on the trans brake and the tree dissappeared!!! 1.29 sixty foot with the back tires. That was cool!! Never done that before. We have a few more adjustments to make and this thing will really scoot. I broke a header tube with the first pass out on Sunday but got it fixed and made some more half passes. It did set a new best e.t. with a 9.59 off the foot brake but there is alot left before it sees the nitrous. I hope to get back down to FL. for the next Funday Sunday June 3rd in Orlando and get some more full passes.

D,

Hey bud you need to schedule a trip back up here some time, I think we need to change the group name to Tex Ten Tuck, and get you and Randy and Jon up here next time :)


Thanks for all your help on the car, you bounced some good ideas at me. Kevin did also, plus Tore for the community Cresent wrench.

I am working towards some very low 6 second passes with these old junk D2 heads, so I may call you guys for some more input


Thanks again

The car is still in FL. because I flew down. I also have a realtor coming the end of the week so I can sell my house. They are going to start building my new house in a couple of weeks and have to get mine sold. Maybe Darren would be interested so he can live near the Tenn Tuck guys. LOL!!! I have to see when I could go down and get the car. You know- I.E. KISS THE WIFES ***!!!! I hope Blake can get it up without CIALIS!!!! HA HA sorry Blake :lol:

Keith,

You cut me deep big guy :oops:

Hurry up and get that car up here.........

We got Kevin fired up on his Mark eight , he's chomping at the bits to get it going.

We need to call Jones and ask him when the 460 with the three heads is coming out in his truck, I would like to know where the other four pistons are located. :lol:
