Gates@ 11..............

What are you bringing the 25th.?

And work has begun at At-mo .................
Maybe the red car, headers for the LTD won't be here by then. I might throw a ported intake on Brandon's car to see what that does.

Rod's been chasing an issue with this thing for awhile, it would kind of lay over a bit at the top of second, and a little in third. I was kind of thinking it had something to do with the fuel system, because he did let it sit for awhile. He pulled the tank and replaced the fuel strainer sock, as it was jacked up, but still no joy at the track as it still didn't behave right. Then he pulled off the two-step and it ran fine on that next run. Don't know where he's at with it now, we'll see what happens on the next track outing.

OK, thought they had similar issues, or does the coupe do something different?

The coupe seems to lay over in 3rd and picks back up in 4th...............been doing that.............the GTs issue is something new that has cropped up since Atmo opened, think its more ignition/2 step related......i hope

That was our last attempted track outing (Me, David , Michael) week before last............a HELLUVA thunderstorm rolled through 30 minutes after we got there and David had changed tires, we had tools out, canopy up chillin in chairs watching the weather when god saw us sitting there minding our own business and decided to try and wash us off the map............that didnt work so he tried to BLOW us off the map........like IDIOTS we stood out there holding down the damn canopy while it sideways rained under it and shot lightning all over the joint..........we were SOAKED from the neck down, all three of us lol..............it was still raining when we got a slight break and helter skeltered our shizz in the cars and rolled out...........me with no heat/defrost etc but i did have an extra shirt............try again in a few weeks when Pirate Mike gets back, hopefully it will have cooled down a hair and the mighty one will leave us alone this time
