BP, I could have likely driven out of it with the injector because I would have been full throttle - so modulating from 100% pedal is much easier than trying to do it at 30% pedal which is what I was here. I did run partway after the landing - 124mph in the 1/8th and I lifted - which is my fastest mph in the 1/8th. It's alot harder to pedal it now. I will look at changing the pedal ratio and angle to see if that helps any.

Love that photo! Any chance I could get a hi-res image of it?

When you mentioned finding the photo on Facebook, I thought "well, is this really a photo of your famous wheelie?" So I pulled up the image from Tiresmoke and looked closely at the picture and there it was, after watching the step by step construction...I would recognize that bugcatcher anywhere. :mrgreen:

Just too update this old post. I finally got the car out again this year for the 2020 RocknRace. Only got one pass in - left like a grandma coming from church (that was in fact the plan) although I left a bit easier than I really wanted and while cutting the WORST 60' of my life (in that car) a 1.7 I made my FASTEST run yet. 9.15 @ 154mph. So as a numbers guy you vant help but doing some simple math.....had I cut a 1.3 (which I did regularly with the injected motor) I would have gone an easy 8.75!!!!!! So I have some GOALS - 8's here we come. Still need to look over everything - only thing I did so far was to de-fuel it. Got sidetracked as I often do. Still majorily stoked with this injector!!!! Sorry no killer pics this year but I do have a straight chassis this time!!!!

It's fun knowing there's a lot more potential there. Gives you something to look forward to next time out. Great MPH!
