The car was dyno and tuned and the final numbers were 1155 rwhp on E85 Fuel

The car was fully prepared and on the trailer ready for the departure to Texas, total distance to cover will be around 1100 miles each way.

The Team is ready to leave and the truck has a mechanical failure. They try to rent/borrow a truck but no luck. At 9.00PM Bello drives the car off the trailer and starts to drive to Texas without a team, Just his car, 2 cans of fuel and small tool box. Lady Luck has turned her back on him yet again. UNBELIEVABLE.

Driving all night without any sleep and at 6.00AM still driving out of Florida with a very long way ahead, he called to see if I can find someone in Texas in case that he needs any help, any volunteers step to the plate. This will be another testament of the durability of the air cooled power plant even with a high output engine.

My hat is off to him for not letting mechanical failures in the tow vehicle get in his way. Good luck this weekend.
