spins the slicks in 3 rd gear but im interested in seeing what its like in 4th gear.

as you know well, boost is addictive.

im sorting other issues now. brakes and suspension are well up to the task now, besides the new heads and brackets, im also dealing with some aero imbalance and fuel starvation issues.

the tail is a blessing in disguise. even in the low angle config, the nose feels light at anything over 100mph. not surprising since i have 64% over the rear wheels. so im finally building a mockup front spoiler or dam, pick your term.

the fuel system deserves special mention. i melted the 1, 3, 4 and 6 pistons. 2 and 5 were not far behind. i had fuel starvation issues at the hairpin at Cayuga and just ignored the sputtering. my mistake.

i am now in the process of installing a surge tank and a second a1000 pump. fuel starvation shpuld never a problem again.
