Glad your back running we won't be going to Pinks it falls between our Norwalk race and Joliet race and that will burn up a majority of my race fund. The new rings wouldn't happen to be Total seal gapless. The top steel ring is a pain to gap. Good luck with your racing season this year.

The rings were not Total Seal and they sure were not gapless. Might have been a tool steel top ring. I have already thrown the package away and I can't make heads or tails out of the invoice. Looks like LPSN8-589OUT SSN.Frirl on the parts list. Top ring had no color, looked like stainless. 2nd ring was a napier and the regular 4 piece oil ring.

Hate you aren't going to make it to Rockingham Bam. Good luck with your NMCA racing!

This has been an unusual spring of racing. We are running faster on our N2O tunes and slower in N/A trim. I am puzzled completely. The engine sounds great and runs .1 to .2 faster on our last years jetting and a mph of 2 faster.

However, we lost .4 in the 1/8 mile on motor alone. The only changes were the transmission going from a 1.69 to the current 1.80 planetary, a new set of Comp roller lifters, and the switch  from a NX plate to the Nitrous Outlet Stinger plate. Our converter was also freshened-up over the winter,but no changes were made in the stall or internals.

Anybody have any idea's???? ex: 6.08 @ 112 to a 6.41 @ 109 N/A
                                                      5.78 @ 120 to a 5.74 @ 121 with a #62 jet cutting the N2O OFF at 4.5 into the run with the progressive. Our 60' have gone from 1.26 to 1.21 on the 62 jet. The #62 tune was run with both plates last year for the full 1/8 mile with only a 1 mph difference and the ET was very close @ .01 to .007 or so.

Nothing like taking a year off.  I had the car mini-tubed and then burned 2 pistons last November (2015) in a grudge race. Tore into the motor in December and found the damage and decided to bite the bullet and do the cam swap. It took 8 months to raise the extra funds for the rebuild and the Jessel shaft rockers. 

For 2017 we'll be @ 2590#'s with the driver in the car and a 7.50 cert. First race will be a No-Prep affair at Shadyside Dragway paying $15,000 to win in the small tire class.  Yes you read that correctly, 15K to win. Motor is together as I type this and cage work has started also.

Here we are in November of '17. We got the new motor & cam and the car was cranked in February of '16. 3 passes and 5 burnouts later the crank broke and destroyed 1 head, the block, 5 pistons, several rods, and bent 2 pushrods. Car was parked till today (11-16-17). I ordered a new block and rotating assembly yesterday. Going back with another 438 build. Dart Iron Eagle block, better crank and rods, 15* Brodix heads, ect., ect. Hope this one last just a tad longer.

What a tough break but it looks like it gave you the perfect opportunity to step it up.  Good luck in getting all sorted out!
