    The drag race event...

    Still wish I could have went....

    Was there one night where you guys ran the SVOs down the 1/4 if so desired?

    Was just curious what all you guys that flogged yer cars down the 1/4 ran?

    Thanks.

    I think Ernie Orwig was the only one who went, and he unfortunately suffered clutch failure. I don't remember him even saying if he made a pass or not.

    after hanging at the dyno all day, a lot of us were too tired to make the trek down to the dragstrip.

    dragstrip

    I was the only one there. I tried to sucker Gator into coming to the track...but those northern boys are too smart!
    Anyway, I let the clutch out at 4500 and tore up the flywheel clutch and pressure plate. I have the car tore down now with a Spec 3+ coming my way with a new flywheel. If I get it back together soon enough and take it to the track I will post some times. I did run 12.01 .............................in the 1/8 Ha

    Ernie, I thought you were going to "de-tune" that car for your daughter to run around in.........and you were drinking tea when you said that, so.......
