Hell yeah...
Joe's race-shop.net All Motor rock solid bracket racing beast took out some heavy hitters to bring home the Modified Water Cooled class trophy, payout and his picture taken with the trophy hottie (bikini contest winner). http://****************.com/smile/emthup.gif
First off, low ET's.
Last thursday the car was out at Atco for some Test n Tune... had about 4-5 13.2x passes in the heat but the last run of the night snuck in a 13.14 wich was just under his new best time from NOPI last weekend.
Yesterday, second pass of the day yeilds a 13.06 @ 103.5, that is now the new best ET for this car and is ever so close to running that all motor street legal 12 second pass.
As for the race,
Joe takes me out first round, and I learned a good lesson that round... after doing your favorite John Force burn out , make sure your e-brake is fully down before you run. Just stupid on my part.
I made Joe work for it though, he told me after the run when my lights dropped he said "damn him, that F****'r got out!" The really funny thing is I still got a 1.989 60' time... I dunno what the deal was, I swear that thing was down but the rear brakes told a different story at the end of the run.
With me out of the way he lines it up against our buddy Kevin Black who soon fell victim to Joe's dead on tree and dial. Glad to see Kevin's car out making "full" passes down the track again after some bad luck with the trans at Nopi last weekend. If I am not mistaken Kevin should have gotten a payout for lowest ET of the day... I dunno, did they pay you out?
Finals, he stays out in front of another turbo rocco for the win. Good job.
All in all a good day at the track.
Stay posted as I will have the temp splash page down and a quick little website up in it's place very soon.
Big thanks to Jim @ Turn2 for rushing out some much needed parts for Joe's car.. http://****************.com/smile/emthup.gif
In return, we got you nice 8x10 glossy heading your way soon of Joe's beast with the bikini hottie.

Bill

Nah, almost perfect... he lifted and got a 13.29 on a 13.20 dial.
You know how Joe runs though, guy cuts .5xx lights like it is his job.
I got your e-mail today, I will write you back this evening and give you the long ass update on what has been going on. But yes, you bet we are ready to build up Jenn's Coraddo!

Well, kind of... I do not know what to think as I normally trap slower at Atco then E-town, Cecil and Maple Grove.
Here is what is going to happen, this car is hitting the track this week with Joe's slicks to see if it comes around. I was happy to see three decent 60' times 1.97, 1.99 & a 1.98, I am now back to my "street tire" launch and seeing better results, but man I am still lighting the drag radials up... it is to the point where I am almost riding the clutch the entire rev thru first gear into the shift to second. I do not know why I am wasting my time....enough of this stupid BS. I am putting slicks on, and it better come home with a respectable number or on the trailer.
My first three runs I missed second gear every time. So that being said, I chose to take a little bit easier approach to the 1st - 2nd shift and even then all I could get out of it were some 13.7x's trappping 100-100.8 area for MPH.
Joe still thinks that it is seat time with the new set up as I have been out only 4 times since last November and a lot has changed since then.
(I am not counting those god awful passes in Feb. w/ the crap cams)
I dunno, I will figure it out as I always do, just give me a bit more time. http://****************.com/smile/emthup.gif
