        Re: Why is there never enough time/ The Ohio mile

        As an update on my junk. Just installed the motor and trans, have to wire and plumb the car, then rewire some things that are being updated or back dated, then retune the car (going back to gas for awile),maybe head to the drag strip for a little testing, possibly beat on it a little on the dyno to see where I am at hp wise at the lower power levels I will be running for the next couple of races. Oh ya also have to rework ome of the ground effects for the smoother pavement.

            Mike, the first time I ran Maxton, you went 237 rigth behind me - I couldn't figure out what I had done to fire up the crowd........you MADE A GREAT RUN!!!The Geezers can't wait to see you in Ohio!!!! We're off the dyno and in the car - check with Brian for details.

              Can't wait to see the Evo back in action. Really dig that car.
              Just hoping my big cube, big turbo turd will be running and hold together a full mile let alone run within 70mph of what that little 4 Popper can.

                Thanks guys!

                Joey probably more like 3 days. lol

                The car has been running since monday, most of the rewiring is done. Need to finish the wiring and reinstall the intercooler, then switch fuels/ get the car tuned , then tested.

                    As ready as I'm gonna be. But I have something to drive down the track and a class to put it in.

                        Yep. That's why I'm not sayin' too much (which is hard for me). If someone else shows up I'm a gonner - hope they'll let me run first.

                          Made smoke a few days ago. Had a leaking freeze plug that is replaced now. Still lots to finish but looks like it will at least make it to the start line.

                                Well the car runs, the wiring is done, the intercooler is back in, it's back on gas and has a partial tune.
                                But as usual took a step backwards yesterday, as I was doing a little tuning by the shop I pulled over and was idling(sp) while workin on the comp. the f'n electric water pump locked up on me once again. New pump should be here today then back to tuning. I will probably hit the dyno or dragstrip this weekend.

                                I hope everyone else is doing well with there cars as I want to see everyone at " THE RACES".

                                  We're on the chassis dyno on Friday. At the drag strip on Sunday. Ready to go! Are you at the Wilmington Inn? Looking forward to it.

                                    Yes sir, Wilmington Inn. I don't know if I will be there thursday or friday, prob. friday.
                                    I still have to chassis dyno and get to the drag strip to do a couple of pull.

                                        Thinking of DragWeek this year Sean? Or next? Lots of variables like the rest of us I suppose, just wondering if it was on the radar screen at some point?

                                          Sounds like everyone is pulling it together. April is to get a baseline (like I usually do) so not much to do. June will be a bit more intense.
