    Too many cars,too little time to drive them. Anything less than 500 cubes is a small block. If you slow down in life you will get run over..

    Jacob,

    Did all my mods for the year in the Spring. I'm just planning to put a mix of race gas and pump gas in it, and run on the race tune all weekend.

    I ordered an el cheapo digital temp gauge to fill the empty hole in my pod. I couldn't justify spending the $ on a innovate guage on a free car. All the factory crap works but I didnt want an open hole. I also think better temp monitoring is important. I'm going to go ahead and wire it before I put the pod back in.

    got my butt kicked

    Well I got my butt kicked this weekend. I have been working on this car to get it ready . I wanted to put in a different trans so I ordered one and pulled out the old one. Then the fun started, The new trans has a "SFI" bell housing so when I put it up the flywheel was too big to fit into the bell housing. so out it came again and we ordered a new flywheel to fit. Got it and again put it up only to find out that the bolt pattern was wrong on the convertor, so we ordered a new one of that. Got the new convertor and put it all back together only to see there was a extra piece on the convertor that was hitting the flywheel. So now it is time to wait for yet another convertor that should fit. I sure hope so and YES I should have checked everything better before I got into this mess.. When this is done I still have some interior work as well some wires to run. Maybe it will be ready for the bash otherwise I guess I will have to bring something else....rich

    The track opens at 8:00 and we can start then. Everyone can get in some test runs and then we will work thru the racing from there. We can play as long as we want and everyone should get in as many runs as they want....Rich
