I had never been down the 1/4 mile until Great Bend, and neither had the car. I was very happy with the results. We were having problems hooking up and had to leave at 2500 rpm or it would just spin. And to do all this around the best group of guys and gals was truly priceless. Many people came to my aid that weekend, and I really appreciate it.
Ok, I found a down side to attending the convention.......what the hell kinda bugs was that out there???? I've scrubbed the front of my truck & trailer to no avail.
It's your fault Phil.....so, you need to change your plans about coming east to see Hayden inducted into the hall of fame and while you are here you can clean my truck & trailer.
I've got Kansas-style bugs all over both cars and the tow vehicle . Haven't cleaned any of them off as yet.
Went through a little dinky gas station somewhere in eastern KS and there had to be a few jillion flying moths, hard to stand outside and pump gas while getting attacked. Had to be the bright overhead lights that attract the bugs. I saw one praying mantis on one of the pumps, he's got his work cut out for him!
I did the exact same thing on both my truck and trailer an they washed right off but I had my golf cart in the back of my pickup and the bugs splattered on the underside of the top were a bit of a challenge to scrub off.
I got a couple 1.7 and I think a 1.6 but I would have to check the slips on the 1.6 to be sure. I was bummed to see you break on the line. Your car really seemed strong. I guess Jack CAN build a good motor.
