My car is faster with hood. And it's heavy. Looks like you need more safety equipment all ready.

Just a quick note on this.

I'm routing the wire from the small contacts to the #30 pin on the relay, then using the original ignition wire to the #86 pin, #87 pin to the MSD small red wire, and grounding the #85 pin.

By doing it this way, it will reduce the chance of relay burnout if you forget to turn off the switch.

Yep, that's the best (and simplest way) to wire the relay.  Thanks!

Looks like you need more safety equipment all ready.

The nice cool spring temps and low humidity we are experiencing will soon go away and then the car will slow down a tenth or two during the heat of summer.  That's something I've accounted for.

My home track will let me go for being a tenth or so under the limit so no fears there. Other tracks may not be so accommodating so and the plan is to slow the car down to their liking.  Thinking that adding the pair of necked down 3" tube open chamber oval street mufflers should get me there.  The way I have the exhaust setup its real easy to do at the track.

Yes Nate.  Removing it never has never made a difference (perhaps because I removed the riser for hood clearance?)  Without the hood it is required to be there.

I reinstalled the painted hood this afternoon and am glad that the big scoop blends in better with the car than it did when it was in primer:









I like it!

With a recently installed 1/2" spacer, there is still about 7/8" of clearance to the underside of the hood:



I'll give it a month or so before color sanding and buffing.

Went racing at the Beaver on Friday evening and further raised the bar with new PB 9.91@135.56:



Wallace calculator estimates I have 720 flywheel hp which is close to what DB estimated when he spec'ed the motor for me to run high 9's.  Its amazing what a couple of tweaks can do.

All throttle, no bottle!  Awesome, Dennis!

What a beautiful car!  I can't believe you did all the hood work yourself.  I think I will just go ahead and deem myself unworthy.   Have a great racing season.
