Winter is here and it's time to put those projects, repairs, updates front and center. What will the next 120 days look like for you.

Resolve my cylinder head issue and pull the motor out. Seriously thinking about piston change. From dished icon piston to flat top icon. The new pistons are only 10 grams lighted but would still have it bal. Would result in a 2 point compression increase. End up at 11.5 to 1. :pop :pop

Suspension, suspension, suspension...... Try and get that pesky Ign box sorted out. And maybe a couple of other things up my sleeve. I will be out in 2016. Looking to be a top 10 car.

Glad to see you are still at it Mike, I miss seeing race results and updates about your car.

Rhett, no more pump gas?

I've been very busy with my daily driver, and trying to help my folks out. Hasn't left me hardly any time for my cars. :(

When they pour the concrete for the barn, have them pour 150 foot strip, set up some 60' timer. Test in the backyard! :pop

I commend you for stepping up. It should pick up nicely from the changes. I thought that you had mentioned in another thread about getting that 11.99 slip.

This past year has been a great year for collecting record breaking E/Ts and a collection of parts that decided they didn't want to play any more.

I started the year at NED with the Demon at the end of the first day and 13 runs later I went home with a SuperCar Quick Eight Top Eliminator WIN an 11.81 E/T and a bent valve.
