I've had to keep this under my hat for a while now, but I can now spread the news.

I have entered into a partnership with none other than "Big Daddy" Don Garlits, he will be handling some of the tuning and offer advice on running my car. This all came about when I donated some memorabilia to him for his museum. He stopped by my shop to pick it up and became interested in my racing after looking at my car. He has some ideas that we are going to try. I think it's a challenge to him because he has not been involved with running a car/engine/ transmission like this before.

Should be interesting........

It’s about time that you came clean about that. It might be a struggle with your matching personality’s though. Blue Man

Shouldn't be too bad, he's not going to come to the races with me, it will be more of a behind the scenes thing.

But Bender has been wanting to run in the 3.60 range, with nitro he could skip right over the 60s......
