    Hope to see many of you at Medford this weekend. Been thrashing on the black car to run it this weekend.
    News is, we should have at least 7 cars for the program. Hopefully we will pick up that last car for a full 8 car field which is awesome under these economic times.
    It's also looking like perfect weather.

    Blessings.........Ron.

    Hey Steve, you can get info on the race on the Home website. Lot's of breakage as teams are trying to squeeze out every dollar of there budget to just make a race.
    We are included. Didn't even make it to Saturday Q. In two aborted pass's Friday night we hurt the PG again. Even after installing the Super pump with the billet stator tube that bolts in from the back side of the pump. It's twisting the stator tube splines. Sent it back to ATI to see if the heat treatment was right. They said it was good to 2500hp. And I don't think we are there.

    Anyway, our future goals is to put a 10" 3-disc AFT clutch in it with a 3 spd B&J trans. We've spent enough on this PG trans & convertor to have already done that if we had been smart. Budget to accomplish this is another matter. It will take some time and some good deals to make it happen. But that is our goal and focus.
    Motor is veeeerrry happy. We are going to back it down and try and make the next race with the black car.

    How are things going with you guys???

    Blessings............Ron.

    Wow, sorry to hear about the breakage. Butch went to the Bruno set up for the same reason, to much trouble with the glide. The only good thing is your making power, just have to get it to the track without breaking something.
    Our car is ready to test, just waitting on Butch. The last I heard was we are going to try to make the race at Infinion.
    If you go to the Hot Rod Reunion at Bakersfield look for me in the Birky Bunch's pit.

    Pete, it's a hope it's ready by next season deal. Race budget needs work before moving forward. What kind of clutch do you have?

    Blessings......Ron.
