Well I promised a photo of the headers. Finally got everything reconnected and back into the daylight. Better shot of the side of the car so you can see the nose height after the new axle. Doesn't look as bad as I thought it would.
Just got home from Mission Raceway test & tune day. What a freakin blast! Best time was 12.80 at 106mph. I think I am drinking a cup of coffee at the tree, I dont have slow reaction time, I got turtle time. But the car ran great. No issues. Just a lot of good runs. https://youtu.be/zTQZ3RkvKzY
Very cool Mike. I can tell you were being safe on that run. Good idea. Car looks and runs great. 12:80 not too shabby first time out. You must have been jumping out of your skin on your first pass. Very exciting.
Hey it's for fun, and that's a respectable time Mike! My first time back to the strip, I had reaction times of .500-.800 most runs!!! After I attempted to leave earlier and earlier, I finally started getting the RT down to .035-.012 times. Just kept leaving earlier on the last yellow, until I figured out where the red light came on at!
Thanks Rik. I did sorta make them. Mainly just modified them. the original design was huge, and the fenders are like elephant ears, so I didn't want to run the coupe with something. I cut the middle of them out and bent the sides in. I think I have some photos of them under construction.
I've seen some tough looking projects on GHR that have turned into some really neat cars. Cars that had damage, body rusted and pieced together from donors....or a car you thought was nice turned to be dung and was completely torn apart to fix or rebuild. I have seen people that have done their very best with very little from the beginning, to progress, where you are now or to a finished photo. My car came without running boards or bumpers just trying to get some ideas. I like what you did with the center section and outside edge with that curve. Great job thank you for sharing that info and photos Mike.
