    I'm finishing the timing....system....job on our Navigator right now (it's been down since November ) The SC hasn't gotten much attention, but needs a little bit trouble shooting to get it to run just right at WOT. Last I drove it, it would still cut out at WOT...feels like a spark issue.

    I also need to check/adjust the hot valve lash. I've not been driving it much at all until that is done. I think I've put about 100miles on the new motor since I got it running last fall.

    I did get the fuel leak fixed, I think.

    We're moving to our new house over the next month, so the SC might not get much attention until we are moved and most of the other vehicles have been fixed. I've been driving Danielle's anniversary to work for the last couple of weeks and it's really got me missing mine!!

    I just bought another house. So after closing I will be moving then juggling two house payments until the old place sells while still working crazy ot and trying to do some work on both houses lol. So hopefully the old house sells quickly so I get that off my plate. I really don't have alot to do to the SC. I'd like to do some tuning at the track but may just have to wing it on shootout day lol

    I am registered and booked and have vacation time for it. I just really need to do some work on the car it's been drove 2/3 times since the epic drive do to me being so damn busy. I need to do some work on the tune becuase it's a bit on the rich side since fixing the bypass valve. And I'd still like to find a 10% js pulley. Since I ran an 11.360 back in the spring I did a complete suspension rebuild new knuckle bushings and Lincoln Lca's also new wheel bearings and fixed the non working bypass valve. I think that stuff alone will drop the et a little bit. How much?? Who knows...

    I have decided not to go this year as well. The car won't be ready in time and I don't want to rush it and risk making more problems. I hate it, but it's the best decision right now.

    Have fun guys. I usually surprise show up, but passing this year. Too many things to do to the car and not going to rush nor have the money for the trip expenses. I did a lot of manual work on it over last winter but itís a slow process for me to get things done and itís set back after set back. I made a promise to myself and stop racing and beating on the car so I can actually enjoy it.

    Hope it's not my fault!

    We'll go regardless I think...I need to make time to mess with the car though. I've yet to get a full WOT 7K+ pull out of it, except 2nd gear. It does run better now though - need to update my engine build post.

    Sad to see you guys can't make it.
