Ha Bob,
Ok got it on the carb, thanks for getting me straight. 78 primary sounds like it is much better with no bog. I still think you might be a little rich, maybe a 76 jet? After you make a pass at the drags you might pull a plug and just see what it looks like so you can make a jet change at home if you need to.

Will be interesting to see how it leaves with Dave hard on the transbrake. Are you going to drive at the race or is Dave?

94 octane should be fine with your compression. What kind of finish line rpm do you think you might be turning?

Wish I was there to see it run.

The dragster is locked and loaded, ready to go to Byron, Illinois for the Glory Days race. Dave and his friend Mike will take the car down Thursday and check in, get it inspected. I'll leave for the 6 hour drive early Friday morning. Dave is racing the car. I'll be there for Friday and probably Saturday.
Glory Days is run by the drag strip crew whereas the Meltdown was run by a bunch of dedicated volunteers. Sure hope it is as good as it used to be.

Please post lots of pictures of Glory Days Bob.

Sure do wish I could have made it this year but my pit crew (wife) couldn't get away as her assistant had eye surgery scheduled and she can't be away without having someone she can leave in charge of her department. I've tried running the car with a "pickup" pit crew but it just doesn't work for me.

Anyway, sure hope you have all the bugs ironed out on the "Silver Bullet". Looking forward to hearing all about it. Good luck to all of you and give my best to Dave.

That is great news, take it easy & make a couple of stops during that 6 hour drive. Glad to see your feeling better, keep up the good work.

Tell Dave I wish him a good, productive & safe weekend. Really looking forward to how this carb setup & new convertor like the "Silver Bullet". Hope Dave is able to use the trans brake or at least foot brake her hard so we can see how this convertor fits into the game.

Sure wish I was there, maybe next year.
