    Yup, that was the 140mph with Mobil1 on the slicks pass in 2006. I was pissed, but have learned that doesn't help.

          Yeah.. That would have been nice...but the reality of it is that today's Nitrous setups are the results of us Carolina hick country boyz that got Pro Mod signed into it's own class in Ennis Texas with Billy Meyers.. Many R&D trips down the 1320..Companys like Mike Thermos's NoS systems...ICE.. Barry Grant..Nitrous Works an so on.. Then just when you think you got it figured out...you have to spend another couple hundred thousand to get all that power to hook up...So..Many days on the 1/8th and 1/4 just doing 1st, 2nd, 3rd Lenco pulls only to learn that a carbon fiber clutch is only going to slip in the tranz and roll the sprags..so step up to the plate with Ram Clutches and get the dual disc slider...Totaly different even today.. when we were burning the pistons up going 6.90's and what they are doing now in the 5's... Lot's of ash trays my man...lot's of ashtrays...Shoot...That bucket full was just one year of testing and match racing.. The IHRA events were basicly ...pretty easy on the parts.. And the B-1 motor that Koffel built for Christine...that thing was apart almost every round....thats if the car wasn't burning up in the trailer or dropping the rear 1/4 to only drag a couple bottles down the track...LOL

              I was there with ya Mutt, just with forged steel rods getting all bent, twisted and broken. Outlaw was fun to run and paid out lots, but cost lots more too. Face it tho, what we learned and know now are worth big bux and the next Gen is coming to us to learn how to go fast. I'm sorry, but I only share with them or teach them 80%. I keep the other 20% to make sure I still go faster than them! I have a couple younger "underlings" that know the rest of my formula and have my "little black book" for all the rest of my ideas and who to call if needed. MANY Mopar Style members have been added to the "book" in the past few years.


              PS, does anybody here know anything about these Ma Mopar 4 cyl dirt track "crate motors"? I got one in my shop an trying to figure how to "turn it up" a little. I told the customer how I wanted to "turn it up" but he said my ideas would put him "outside the legal limits".
