11's is pretty slow these days aye.
Ive thought several times that I should do a cheap drag shell and use my motor in it, but I cant afford to circuit race and drag race

Hey guys took out first place today at the 4 and rotary nats in the c2 2wd turbo class. Best time of the day was a 12.248 at 173.15 km/h.Stoaked with the win wasnt expecting it at all. Best time was done straight of the trailer after that i wasnt able to beat it , did a few 12.3s etc . The track was in poor condition as always very slipery and had a few very light showers through out the day.Had problems getting heat into the tyres couldnt hold it on the spot it would drive foreward making it impossible to get the heat into the tyres. But anyways was a good day stoaked with the win so close to an 11 now just need a fine day to get some heat into the track. will post up videos when i get a chance

Drag combat today ran a best of 12.036 at 114.96mph so close to an 11 now , unfortunately the day ended with a small hole in the radiator. Always next time i guess should have new converter and possibly line locker in for next time.

Went to the spring nationals today ran an 11.795 at 116mph on the low boost setting for the first run. second run i decided to up the 2 step 200rpm and flicked to the high boost adding 100hp, car was flying down strip untill something let go think it might of been the head gasket will have to strip it all apart and see whats gone on. Would love to have seen what sort of time it would of pulled on that second run it felt so much quicker.

Not exactly sure what happened but have a few ideas , i found the vac line to the fuel pressure regulator had blown off so my guess is that caused it to lean out.The block should be out tomorrow and ill drop it off to the engine builder and see what he thinks went wrong and go from there about repairing it. was hopeing to upgrade my daily but looks like that money will have to go towards rebuilding this.
