Yea, we'd have torn some Mustangs up.

You have a good fall too Steve. I hope you're feeling well enough to get some hunting in before the seasons' over.

I'll be putting my "kills" in come November ... if not before. I hope to get to the track more than once this fall.

Don't make a rats azz to me if you come by then. I'll be up anyway!!!

Plan your time and come by and pick the stuff up.

I may just have to come over and get a rubber buzz myself and holler at you guys that morning.

Get those damn front spacers.

Looks like decent weather early Saturday, if the track will hook.

JP, did you get your issue resolved yet??

Nice seeing you guys today. Good getting out to the track and seeing some old friends as well.

Good job today guys considering the fog and conditions early.

Turned out to be a nice day.

Well, nothing to brag about but we fixed a couple gremlins and the tune is definitely a work in progress.

But we ended up 21 thousandths shy of 12's for the day with 104+ mph trap speeds.

It still is launching like a slug. The best sixty foot time was 1.9xx.

Glad to hear you're making progress. That's a very respectable time for an N/A Mark VIII.

You might want to talk to Rob and - schedule permitting - bring it down to our Thanksgiving meet and let him take a look at it while you're here.

Hope to see you there!

Yeah, looks like he could use a torque converter, gears, tune, etc. Bone stock Mark VIII Swap into a MN12 and its doing pretty well.

Stock mark converter, stock tranny no j-mod, 3.08 open rear, no tune, I'd say it is doing pretty well. Not bad for DA's ove 1000 ft at Mason Dixon yesterday.

Like I told you Chris, you know what you need to do.

With better air and track along with some more tweaking on that tune it'll be bad JP. Wish there had been more time to play with the tune after you got the other things sorted out.

At least progress was made and great to see that thing make full on passes. Its pulling it azz off on the top end. Definitely need to deal with that 60' problem. That launch really hurts a 4250 lb boat anchor LOL!!!!!

LOL... no doubt the sixty foot times could be much, much better. The launch off idle is the primary focus for now. Then of course we still have the converter and intake manifold to address.
