Yeah, bummed we missed 2 events this year, but trying to make sure we are 100% ready rather than rush out there and damage something again.

Yeaaaah. Same reason is has a radio, its required by the rule book. Also turn signals are useful when pulling off track so others know.

Nice numbers. Not bad for an unported head an a 2.9. We are switching back to Ignite Red and will be curious to see what the gains are.



And finally finished programming the UI and interfaces for the CD7 dash.

Headed to Buttonwillow next weekend for the first shakedown.

Curious to see how much different you will have to drive it now that you have a lot more power and rpms to play with. I'm guessing the TVs put you in another class?

Trust me, that's the plan. Neither of us is thrilled that we haven't run this season. But show me anyone else building a car that can run full song as long as ours needs to. One nice thing of going to the LS78 tb is its supported by AEM (unlike the LS4) so some of our idling issues have gone away thankfully.
