So I’m feeling kinda proud

We trailered to Tucson this weekend for the ADRA and American Dragster races. I’m a foot braker only - no transbrake like most entered, so I’m at a small handicap. I placed third  in ADRA’s Saturday race and won a little money. That’s a feat (feet) 😂
I thought about adding a trans brake but decided I’m liking the old school challenge of working the feet vs a button.
 I also got the coveted .000 reaction time on the qualifying “throw us random index qualifying run” for American Dragster. Odd rules they have but very challenging.  It was only qualifying but still I never thought I’d see .000 ever! 
I’m entering Tucson dragways foot brake race next month. It won’t be same weekend as the Tucson ACE cruise thankfully. 
My bracket racing is getting pretty good! Lonnie’s been quite the teacher and he was kind of impressed with my new launch skills! 
I’m done bragging but had to share since I’ve posted since the start of my building and racing. 
we removed the back window screen and added (of course) chrome stripes which made the car faster. 😂

the DA was 5700 and my car doesn’t like it at all but bracket racing is strategy vs fast time so all was good. I got 27 runs in and still wanted more. 
A great time was had and I can’t wait for the next race!

Nice! But I still maintain, the chrome addition slowed your ET.

Not possible, science doesn't back that up.  Per BadBob Combs (God rest his silly soul), decals are worth 10 hp

that time was in horrible da. My car bogged several times at launch throughout the weekend. It was frustrating but Tucson is such a fun track, it’s worth the bad DA.

I'm working on it. I have the car tore apart right now installing things and doing upgrades. I figure it will take a few more weeks since I have to wait on parts...I'll get there though.

It was like Christmas early today. A lot of things came in, but not all of the stuff needed to finish. Tues should be the day for everything to arrive.🤞 I did make some progress with the relay's install and WB 02 new harness/controller install. :thumbs

Way to go Mo! I could not have done even close to what you have accomplished. It may also help to have those small feet! Keep up all the fun and good work!

Most new stuff installed, calibrated and working well, but the one item I needed to put everything back together is back ordered, of course...So I had to reorder it from another place that says they have some, we shall see. WAITING, another week I bet. Ugh! It's ALWAYS something.

you have to get it done before winter is over or you’re going to miss the season!
