      Last minute decision last night to enter Kendra Radial Drag Event this Saturday @ Willowbank. Should of had a fresh set of radials but wasn't planning on racing. Putting new control arm bushes this week, ready for bulk gas

          Kenda was a blast, went back to a 255 et street R, was a bad move, alot more consistent but lost exactly a tenth with radial prep, the track was tight! And went from running 1.45 60ft to 1.49/1.50.

          Qualifing went well 6.83 & 6.86 @ only 94 mph off the gas a tad early each pass. With over 30 cars they split the class into 2, I qualified 15 in the top/fastest 16 Cars

          Round 1 - Raced a 434 sbc 2 door monaro. Got a massive holeshot on him .150 reaction to his .400 somthing. 6.78 @ 99mph beat his 6.58!!!!

          Round 2 - Raced a old 56 chev, another holeshot & a 6.79 @99 beat his low 6.7

          Round 3, with 5 other cars having won 2 from 2 and knowing they were all faster than me. I knew I had to step my game up in the 3rd round if i wanted any chances of making the finals.

          So in goes the 150 shot Jet, Few changes to the timing retard & in went a aggressive nitrous curve... while going into stage I had my radio on and heard I needed to run 6.48 or quicker!!!

          Game on stall it to 3000 revs and let it eat, Axle Tramp and no traction with a sharp pedal it hooked up pulling the front left up high. 6.86 @ 101.9 mph with a shitty 1.64 60ft. Also banged the rev limter hard in 1st and turned the gas off for .5 of a second. But still got the win 3/3 just missed out on the finals.

          So now the plan is new 2 way adjustable Vikings rear shocks, McDonald brothers adjustable control arms and back to 235 et streets and try and chase 6.50s at radial riot.

              Just slowly chipping away at it. Had the thought of going turbo... brought some manifolds but have decided to stick with current combo. May even chase a 9 second pass next year, stock bottom end... nitrous , 3700 pounds.
