Well it was an interesting season, we only had the money to run at two events. The first event we made 2 passes before the event was shut down and we did not return to finish our session. The last event of which we competed in was on October 25th and it was grudge match racing. This was a lot of fun. We ran in 3 races and won two of them. The track was not prepped so it was extremely slick. Anyhow hopefully we will pick up some financial support in the off season so that we can attend more events this coming year.
Our best ET for this season was a 10:31 @ 129 mph.
Thank you to everyone who helped out this year and I look forward to seeing you again next season.
Getting ready for the new season, I need to make some major changes to the car, including updating the chassis and fixing the body up after a few years of abuse. We will be sticking with the black on black paint job but the car will have a sharper appearance this year. The valve covers are now aluminum and the air cleaner is now of the chrome variety. We will also be running the company's logo on the side of the car. I am still looking for some help for the upcoming season.
On August 13th we made it to the semi finals at PMP. We were eliminated after a late start. Overall it was a great racing weekend the car was very consistent running solid 11.42s at 119 mph. Hopefully this trend will continue.
The previous weekend we again competed in Pueblo and went out in the second round with a red light. The car was consistent running 11.42 at 121 mph. With the high temperature the track was slick and I tried to cut a light, our competitor had been deadly consistent in practice and competition. I was 0.047 seconds early.
Over the weekend we competed at Pueblo Motorsports Park. We had a poor first pass in qualifying however the second run was solid. In first round eliminations we won running an 11:40 on an 11:39 dial. In second round I red lighted, leaving a bit too early along with a break out at the far end. Overall it was a good racing weekend and our team collected some good data to help work on the consistency of the car.
Our first event of 2011 will be at the Pueblo Motorsports Park for the gambler no box race and test and tune session. The car sounds great. We did make some minor changes to the car that we hope will improve our 60 foot times and aid in our consistency.
Getting ready for the new season. We have to do a few updates to the car to be legal this season. All of the updates are on schedule. We are expecting to be back at the track in April. The land Speed effort is still on hold because of a lack in funding and a slowing economy. I do expect to resume work on that effort soon.
Our best pass of the year was an 11.31 at 122 mph, not bad for our first year out. We did win a couple of rounds but mostly we learned a ton. I need to say a special thanks to all of those who have so graciously helped out this year, Thank You.
I have gotten the reaction time down to consistently under a .095 with an occasional .011. We have not red lighted yet but as you all know that is coming. We will have to do some minor updates to the car over the winter but nothing too major. I am looking forward to a new year and hopefully a race win and not just a round win or two.
So far our best time at Test and Tune was an 11.47 at 121 mph; hopefully we will be able to improve upon it soon.
Thanks to Don and the Transmission Clinic of Colorado Springs for setting us up with a new unit.
The drag car will be back at the track very soon.
We tried the drag car out at Pueblo Motorsports Park this week and ran into a minor problem. On our forth pass the tranny let go. Well I suppose that is just a part of racing. It has been scheduled to be repaired this week and hopefully we will give it another go this weekend.
The 1927 Model T arrived this week. It does have a few bugs to work out. We have replaced the ignition along with some wiring. It did fire up and sounds good. Over the next few weeks I will be updating the car, mainly out of date safety equipment and repairing leaks. Hopefully it will be ready for test and tune coming up in April, God willing.
The new car should arrive from Florida within the next few days. We are looking forward to the upcoming season.
I will be arranging delivery of the new NHRA car; this is the car that has been used in the photos on this page. The car is a 1927 Ford Model T, running a powerglide Transmission with a 477 CI motor. The car will be run in the super gas class. We plan on competing in the Magna Fuel Super Series at Bandimere Speedway in Morrison, CO. We are also toying with the idea of running a few races abroad. The car should be delivered by the end of January. We are looking forward to this season and hope that God will allow us to work for him during the racing events, and hopefully be competitive.
The Salt Flats car is again on hold due to a lack of funding. If you are interested in helping out with either project let us know.
We have just agreed to purchase a new (ok new to us) car for the 2010 season. This car will be used at NHRA sanctioned tracks. Our Salt flats effort will continue to undergo construction but it will not be complete for 2010 unless we can secure sponsorship for this effort.
Corksport has provided a t-3/t-4 turbo, thanks for the help.
Burt's Machine shop has been contracted to set up the bottom end on the salt flats car. Also Kennedy Engineering has set up the trans adapter. Things are going along a bit behind planned but with some help we should be on the track this summer.
Paeco Motorsports delivered a set of custom cams this week along with custom head and main studs. Additionally Kennedy engineering developed an adapter plate for the engine to transmission for our application.
Import Performance parts are setting up the bottom end parts including JE pistons and Carrillo rods.
We have just completed the chassis of our first car. The motor has been selected and we will begin construction on it in the next few days. We have also selected the transmission along with ratios that will be used. Hopefully the motor and transmission will be completed by summer.
Paeco Motorsports has agreed to develop a cam specifically for our application, thanks Paeco.
