Nothing happened, was a perfect pass.

Default Chevelle upgrades.

Not that many changes this month. Added in a Billet wheel to the atmo turbo, no change. Think it sounds different when spooling and when I chop the throttle. But over performance is the same.

Ran it last weekend with NHRDA here locally and ran a 10.91 in the 10.90 index. Same as last month here in Sacramento. This track just canít hold enough traction to go faster then that. Ended up losing in the final round do to a messed up boost tube.

My daughter ran the tow rig and the Trans is just tired. It did run a 15.0@94, which is surprising considering this is an extremely mellow tune and the stock trans has 308k miles on it. Itís showing its age and limped 2 out of 4 passes. Time to build it!!

Weíre driving it the Chevelle to Redding this coming week for a car show and drag race, Kool April Nights, not sure if anyone is from the area but if you are weíll be running the car Friday night.

Default Chevelle upgrades.

Guess I never posted any updates since getting the new vc on. Car has been running pretty good for the past few months. Ran it in Redding in April, Fontana with NHRA In Super Street (10.90 index) divisional race in may, Sonoma on Memorial Day and this week again at Sonoma. Car has been running in the 10.9ís until this week. Had a few gremlins that came up on our third pass.

Weíre hoping to run at a National event maybe this year, but for sure next year. Thatís why we went to the divisional race in Fontana to get out grade points. Had a blast and the other racers were blown away. We trailered the car there but drove it back n forth from the track, to the airport, to the hotel and back to the track for 3 days. They couldnít believe what we were doing. Was super cool. Didnít go rounds but still had a blast.

Here are a couple pics of what it looks like today. Prob going to start making the tstat housing on the Cnc machine this month as the 59 is gaining some traction. If anyone is interested lmk, Iíll get you a price.






This was this past weekend after driving home from Sonoma raceway.
