How's everyone looking? I'm going to try and get my aluminum Mark 8 differential housing and drive shaft in but then I might not. I know I will definitely not have the Mark 8 aluminum LCA's in. The fiberglass cowl hood will be installed and painted within 2-3 weeks so the only other item on my list to get done before the big June 4th/5th weekend is a tune by double D's......:D

I still have 3-4 items on my list that will be done before the Shootout 2010.

You guys have plenty of time.:rolleyes: I have to put the rear in my car hopefully go to the track this saturday to see how good the tune is, then install a motor in my dads marauder and maybe break it in alittle before next friday.:eek: For PAO at ZMAX.

Did you Grenade the Terminator Motor? Ringland failure from the Bottle? And where you going next Friday?

King Keith,

No it didn't grenade but the lands were beat and pinching the #2 rings. SO we had a teksid built with the cobra rods and crank and some CP pistons with alittle more compression.

Yeah, I figured the ringland issue would be visiting you guys. Typical of bottle fed Cobra motors. Especially that much bottle...

Yes, go on VMP's site, click drag racing, click on the Pinks emblem, then you'll see buy crew tickets. Enter my name Mitchell Nichols and you're good to go.

I was reading FAQ's on the site and it says they have a scale in the back of the pit area so you can weigh your car for free. They can also fill your nitrous bottles as well as race fuel, of course everyone already knows that but me....the rookie........:o

Gas pricing

Maximal – Red (116) $10.00
Supreme – Blue (112) $9.00
Standard - Purple (110) $8.50
GT Unleaded (100) $8.00
Methanol $5.00

QUESTION: Should I run straight 100 or 93 with a couple gal. of 110?

I would run 1/4 tank of 93 and 1/4 of the 110, but ask Chris what he does...
Do I need just one crew ticket? Meaning for one day? Do i need to purchase one for both days? Or what? Did you happen to notice that a RV spot is 200.00?

Crew tickets are good for the 4th and 5th

I plan on going with 100 octane unleaded in the tank.

That RV location is on the opposite side of the track from the pits for the spectators, look at the map. I crew ticket should be good for both days but I would call them to make sure.

So we dont need an RV spot then? Am I understanding that correctly? Meaning that is for a hook-up and not for us in the Pits...right?

Are you towing one of the cars with the RV? If so it just sits in the pits with no extra fee.

I run unleaded race fuel I usually like more that 100 octane tho. VP MS109 I like. But if Dave says run 100 octane the sunoco 100 should be fine for you.

Ok, thats what I was getting at. So, if its not pulling a car they make you get an RV spot across the way?

Yeah I don't think you can get in the pits during a pinks event if its not the hauler, especially if its a RV. Cause there are ALOT of cars that show up.

If you do have to park it across the strip in the RV lot I'm sure we'll all pitch in to pick up the $200 fee. You might want to reserve it now if there are any spots left.

Im thinking its going to be towing your car. That will be a pain in the butt going back and forth from the pits. When are we leaving? Thurs night?

I can drive my old truck since I need to carry tires/tools anyways. Let's get up with Chris so we can caravan in with his group so we can be side by side.

Looks like they close the gates to get in at 10pm thursday night. I'm 2 hour away as you guys are about the same. We can meet at that big gas station about 2 miles from the track.

The trailer will have to be picked up on Thursday for sure and returned on Sunday. I'll call Chris and figure out where we can meet and when. Todd will have to coordinate with us if he wants to pit with us.

Sounds good to me, as we get closer to the date I'll touch base with you. I took off Thursday, Friday and Monday so Dave I'm good to start getting packed and loaded anytime you are on Thursday.

Dave, you need to get the RV and trailer on Thursday, come over and we'll load up and get to gas station Chris is referring to by VMP at whatever time Chris's motorcade is going to arrive there. He'll chime up on here and let us know when that'll be.
