    Re: What state of disrepair is your DW entry in at this point?

    ...is anybody else in this state or am I the only one?
    Mine looked similar two weeks ago. Got it all back together and made it to the track for some 1/8 mile chassis tuning of the new Dana 60 & rear suspension. On it's fourth pass, it ran a 1.35 60 foot (best ever). It needs a little more 4-link & shock tweaking but it's raceable.

          Engine is going together but it still has a way to go. Once it is in, I have the second fuel system and N2O systems to set up. I am shooting for having it running by the end of May to start getting some miles and passes on it.
          Why think when you can be doing something fruitful?

            Well, headers are done. Driveshaft should be here next weekend. Interior is out, still have to get a convertor, have to completely wire it, finish the brake and fuel systems, figure out where the alt. and vacuum pump is going to go, and then take the motor back to engine builder for some dyno time. Oh yeah...still have to finish plumbing the fogger...what have I gotten myself into?....lol.

            Should be running and driving by the end of May. Lots of work ahead......I will be there for Drag Week!!!!!

                        Went to Famoso this weekend for TnT and Summit Series bracket race. Tighter converter, leaf spring sliders, relocated shocks, new cooling and charging system and I have a bracket car suddenly. Dead hooks every pass, 9.91 & 9.89 yesterday, 9.83 & 9.85 this morning, 9.891 on a 9.89 dial round 1 in afternoon with red bulb, got a little excited -.013.

                        I can finally focus on chassis and engine tune again, completely amazing. Now to get the 60 ft.s back in the 1.40's and hopefully 1.30's and the ET's a bit lower. And more MPH. And a pony.

                                    James, I didn't say whether I was spraying already and given my 50/50 track record of finishing vs. DNF you have nothing to worry about in any event.

                                          Haven't lit up a slick since 1994 and already been bit by the speed bug........need to get it together before I max out the plastic on "go a little faster" parts. E-Bay is an addiction. Good thing I will have more shop time come May 25th.
