    Thanks! The car was down for almost a year and a half so hopefully another six months isn't too painful.

    Some pics from local car events this spring. So nice to have this POS back on the road. Should have a new nitrous bottle in the next week and be ready to spray it.

    Went to the track Friday night to make some passes not that we got the nitrous working. I was only able to get two passes in so I still have a lot to learn with seat time and tweaking things. To refresh memories it's a cam only LM7 with a 100 shot, T56, and a 9" with 4.11 gears.

    First pass we had the 2 step set at 3500 RPMs and no nitrous, tires at 15psi.

    Second run we knew would be our last so we just threw the bottle in and got back in line. It bogged pretty bad the first pass so we bumped the 2 step to 4000 and had nitrous coming on at 4200. It still bogged a little so we definitely have more work to do figuring out the launch on DRs.

    Here are a couple videos of the pass with the 100 shot.

    Good day out! Getting it out of the hole without bog will need some serious RPM (5500?) and maybe a little tire slippage. No sense in swinging for the fences your first time out. Looks fun!

    Have you tried a pair of bias ply’s slicks instead of the DR’s? There’s just something off about trying to launch a stick car on DR’s, there are success stories but they don’t seem to be very common.
