    Dang, this thing has become a race to get into the race. Did you get on the wait list? Good chance you will still get in if you show up.

    No I didn’t do the wait list. I would need to but some stuff for the car and change rear gear ratio. So I didn’t want to deal with possibly having to rush at the end. Can’t risk going the 13 hours to see if I could get in. Try next year.

      I pushed send at 3:05! Not sure how I could have done it faster, other than typing TBD. in every field except the name address and credit card.

      Unfortunately I've only made one pass since getting it all back together. That one pass smoked third gear in the transmission. Had PTC build me a new stronger 904 and just picked it up last night.

      Will be making more passes and tuning as soon as I can get the trans swapped in.

      How is the barracuda running?

      That sucks But at least it went now. Not half way through drag week. We actually lost 3rd gear too first time at track in May. Had that fixed Been running solid since.

      Let us know how she runs!

      Working on mine for next year. Starting body work this weekend. Hope to be painted by October so can start assy. Just a 360 magnum hopped up with a 904 at this point. Maybe turbo in the future.

      Yeah that's what I told my wife. Better now than on drag week. Also wasn't too surprised, thought the trans was probably my only weak link left after adding the extra power with the Procharger. Hopefully I can get my hands on a 10 second timeslip before DW starts.

      @70Roadkill

      What paint is that on the cage?
      Is it spray or brush on?

      I'm looking for a good cage paint.

      Thanks.

      That's just what I'm looking for!

      I didn't know you could get the hammer paint in brush on, that's great to know!!

      Did u use a foam brush or regular brush?

      How much did you use?

      Thanks for sharing, your paint looks great!

      Brush and 1 qt. is more than enough. Just wipe the cage down good. There are several other colors, I liked the way the Grey turned out. Just make sure you mix it up every now and then as you brush it on the get the hammered look.

      I'm heading out to Atlanta in the morning, the Barracuda is running and driving, but haven't made it down the strip yet. Should be interesting.

        I've been fighting all kinds of transmission trouble. Went to start it lastnight and no fire, just crank and crank. It appears to be a bad MSD box. Got a new one at lunch so hopefully it runs tonight.

        It's been hell month before drag week for me. Haven't made a full pass down the quarter since installing the Procharger

            It seems that they started below the max car count. So anyone who went got it.
