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.

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. :D

Last night I sprayed the front of my pickup with Bugs-be-gone, let it soak for a while, then ran it through the automatic car wash. Looks like the bugs are still all there.

Came off the MH good but not the windshield. Scrubbed it twice and still not good !! Glad to hear I'm not the only one.

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!
Best,

Waxed my truck & Rain-X on the windshield before the trip. Went to the car wash and everything is clear.
From my 2500 miles.

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.:cool:
