Re: New project

Update , took the truck to the track last weekend for the last offical race of the season . They have a new class called street legal warrior i wanted to try . I signed up and filled both bottles . My first 2 passes where qualifying and test & tune all rolled up into 1 . It went 7.34 on motor with the throttle only opening the back barrels about 1/4 of the way and no spray . I also set the nitrous regulator at the track due to a couple of all night thrashes to get the thing together . On the second pass with 600 # of bottle pressure straight out of the ice it went 6.73 I missed the 1 2 shift and bounced off the rev limiter and it was crazy fat . 3rd pass was first round of elems i left on him by .17 and had him covered @60' , about 280-300' the throttle cable popped off and i coasted to being trailer bound . Had alot of fun and got a list of stuff to work on til the next one . Drag radials are a different monster .

Here is the new linkage set up .
