Re: TRP 8-5-2020

It was an uncommonly chilly evening last night which was conducive to drag racing. I'm guessing there was well over 150 cars out there. I got there later than I wanted due to a memory lapse where I forgot my helmet. Which is normally not a huge issue, but when I remembered it, I was going down a one...

Tailgater Tormentor! That's great. You should post a picture of that...

154mph has to be way faster than you were going before.

Re: Rock-n-Race

Climbing in and out of that thing with a bad back could be pretty painful I'm sure. It's good to know there's an 8 second pass in it without trying too hard. That's totally badass!

Re: TRP 7-29-20

As noted, one time run makes it tough to dial in, especially if your time run was before the rain. But none of that matters when you go .0017 red in eliminations. I ran a 12.35 off the street and forgot to lower my tire pressure so I launched a little soft and it spun pretty bad on the 1-2 shift. In...

TRP 7-29-20

It would appear that Dave and I are going to hit the track tomorrow night. He on his two wheeler and I in the S10.

Hope to see you there. With social distancing rules in effect, there won't be any dancing. Nevertheless, we can still have fun.

Re: 1990 Corvette Z51

So what's the plan. You gonna put those parts on or have it done?

If you decide to do it yourself, let me know and I can lend a hand.

Re: 1997 Pontiac Firebird

We haven't driven it with the fuel pressure gauge on it but we checked it at idle and it's where it should be (don't remember how much now). And it has a new fuel filter. Like you said, it needs this either way, and I don't want to throw parts at it. Fixing the lifter will cure that, eliminate it as...

Re: 1997 Pontiac Firebird

I got a tip from Paul Carson that the knock sensor might be picking up the noise from the lifter and pulling all sorts of timing out of the car. So we pulled the plug and drove it, but to no avail, it still is pretty down on power under load, but feels OK under normal light driving conditions. We pu...
