so the day started off w/ frostburner heading over to my place, and then poi and pennybridge pioneer showing up later on ... we headed out to the bozzani to stop buy and pickup and drop off some things ... check out a few cars and then head out to the drags.

here are the pics from @ my place

once @ the drags blown240 meet up w/ us there. all in all was a pretty fun day, we all had our ups and downs from our cars not performing how they should but hey that's all there is to a tbricker life. the bozzani show was pretty cool, mostly the same group of cars as most of these shows. the evolve s40 showed up and drew a crowd from the performace junkies. but i can't comment to much on teh show as i wasn't there long so look for others.

my car along w/ pats in the parking lot @ bozzani

all in all was a fun night ... here's my take on the night right from the EvsW thread

had a ****ty day ... loads of tranny probs. car would NOT shift out of 1st in 2nd unless i let off the gas, i boucned it off the rev limiter each run 2+ times. and my CBV tore on the way to the track i so i hammered it down and could only hold 15psi .... but i did run a 16.00@90mph, and then a 14.7@95mph and then again a 14.7@95mph(the last run the LT1 Z28 next to me blew up his motor haha)

but yea i picked up almost 3+ mph and that's only @ 15psi and bouncing it off the rev limiter and letting off the gas and then getting back on it to get to the 1/2 shift ... i'm pissed but i'm happy that the car made it home in one piece

poi did pull a 14.72@96mph so that's a few more points for the west ... update the thread kenny boy(i'm not posting time slips for me because yes my MPH was better but ET was better last time) .... IF ... IF i can replace the tranny and figure out a working CBV setup i might try to make it out to the AZ drags in DEC before the end of the year to go for my goal as i know this car has 98+mph traps and low 14's if not 13's in it ... just need to get everything to stay together and not fall apart


now we just need the other guys to chime in ... and doubleV post that pic of us clowns from bozzani .. and all of the other pics you took while there

oh and i don't think it was mentioned but blown240 did run a 15.009@90mph ... so close to his 14.99 goal ... and on his 2nd run the belt decided it wanted to jump off giving him a mi 18 sec run oh well was still great he did a sweet burnout before the 2nd run

the bone stock R ran mid 15's i think a best of a 15.4@90 mph about as fast his pennys old car, tho this one is stock and his old one had 10psi on a 13c, NPR and full 3". so if/when he gets money to make this R fast it'll be sweet
