    I think my mom has some. I will look tonight and post them on here if I do. I think I have one of me my son when he was 3 or 4 and chad Ray standing by it. The pick is of the car at the track right after chad Ray bought it from me.

          She’s ready for the track
          The minor testing didn’t show any crazy problems so now we are waiting on The tracks to open in mid January

                Well I finally found one pick of the car when I had it. It doesn’t look anything like it does now. Lol this pick was taken back in 1993. Damn I miss the old car. Lol

                    First outing and 3rd pass on the new combo
                    The 60’s were off from the 2nd pass
                    Tried to leave at a higher rpm
                    And it spun
                    The first 2 pass the 60’s were in the 1.47’s
                    Car drove very good and do believe she will go a little faster as I learn to adjust the shocks for a harder hit

                        6.448 in the 1/8 mile? wow, this converts to a pretty low 10 sec run…..congratulations!

                        Is it still the 408 / cnc´d imm indy X-heads? What Kind of cam do you have in there? I like it!

                        Yes the heads are the iron Indy rhs magnum style with his cnc program not real sure if he still does it
                        Solid roller cam
                        I really didn’t think it would run this good
                        And I believe it will go faster that was only the 6th pass on the car after the updates
                        Not sure how much faster but I think it will go faster

                        I talked to Brian end of 2017 regarding These heads, they can´t supply the cnc porting since the guy who runs the cnc won´t cut cast iron any longer. I decided to get some cnc´d procomps from him instead.

                        You got the MA-X Version? think i saw the indy 360-3m intake somewhere in your pics - cool combination for sure! You run shaft Rockers or the Mag-Valvetrain?

                          I had some issues this fall after the cam breakin, didn't have time to troubleshoot so I parked it after 1 trip down the road to the gas station and back....I'll have to wait till spring to run it (track opens in April). I'm hoping for similar performance (I would be very happy with 6.4x's).
