    It would be nice to have someone there with you. but i guess this is the next best thing. How much was the dvd?

    Stayed up 36+ hours strait from friday morning till saterday night....worked all day friday, got home around midnight to get the car ready to goto the track. 6:30am headed to our spring "safety breakfast". 11am was at the track and ready for some test and tune!
    Best of 12.08 @ 112 mph with a 1.7 60 foot.
    After some logging realized it was maxing out at only 20* advance at WOT so with some timing adjustments and a few heat sheilds to get the intake air temp down the car should be well in the 11s

    Nice. I'm sure the long hours had to wear on you a little. Adrenaline had to be pumping you up though I can imagine. That thing is gonna be crazy once you get it dialed in right. I gotta pick up that tuning setup for mine. Then I'll be contacting you so you can tell me how to work it lol! Need pics & vid!

    I'm finally on vacation this week!

    I've got most of the stripes on the car sanded smooth and level, the passenger door body lines are gone, door skin has been primed and blocked out...just need alittle tlc on a small spot here and there. Drivers door will be in prime by the end of the night.

    By the end of the week she should be all Hugger Orange!
