Trans is back in. The TCI I bought from a Stocker buddy stalled at 5000 behind a H/SA 360. I figure it will flash to 4600 or so off the brake in mine.

Going to try to test tomorrow if the weather is decent.

I invited my nephew with. He's never been to a dragstrip in his life. :mrgreen:

Car ran pretty good today. Only issue I had was getting heat in it. First run I staged at 140° and when I turned off the track it was at 110. :shock:

I couldn't get much more in it for the 2nd try and it still stumbled going up on the brake. Car ran another 13:29 though.

I richened up the idle, and this time it went up on the brake nicely. Car went 13:25. It was so windy I put it back on the trailer and left.

Mike had filler panels in the grille painted black. The paint was peeling so I took them out. Looks like I'll be painting them and putting them back in.

Nephew thought the race track was pretty cool. When I dropped him off at home he asked if he can go with next time.

He also said my car is loud. :mrgreen:
