Lil Z finally got his gremlins set aside an the car is running like it otta. We went to Thompson today an he made his first pass with the wheels a few feet up off the line, twice, he lifted ,he peddled, then eased off the throttle passed the 1/8 an layed down a 9.50. He came back around to the pitts an gathered his witts then went back out for a second pass, this time he lowered the RPM on the brake to 2500 to ease the launch some. He left flat out with all four tires on the ground with a casual 1.30 / 60ft - a 5.72 / 1/8mi - an a 8.93 @ 153mph through the traps 1/4 mile pass, ALL MOTOR!!!! His car definatly got a little more with the starting line hit harder with some wheely bars out back , then comes some nitrous passes.

Amac had his fastest pass to date also today, a 9.40 !!! That ole Thompson track ain't half bad.

We had a good time at TRP today even though it was very crowded. There was a lot of nice fast cars to look at and all of the entry money went to a good cause [Children] Like Mr Z said Lil Z got a ride and so did I and Toot had a big smile on his face we didn,t do any racing but it was well worth the trip !!!

Yeah we had some fun out there. I don't mind the crowd and stuff as long as all the fun was for a good cause. It was great hanging out with Toot, his nephew, Skip, Tom, and Tom's dad. Like dad said, time for some wheelie bars cause that wasn't as much fun as one would think it is, haha. Car's in one piece with no major repairs for next year. Just more improvements.

Wow, a 8.93 and all motor to boot ! Congrats Don. See what marriage will do for you ! That 1 run should hold you over the winter. Looks like there will be a father/son team in 2011 that'll be kicking butts and taking names.

Yeah I went out with a good run, couldn't be happier about that. Now I can run my lip all winter, haha. We'll get some wheelie bars on order and launch harder for some 8.80's or better next year. Then I always got the blue bottle if that's not enough. I'm glad that I don't have to spray it to run the 8.90 race, that was my goal.

He might ride along an crew chief a bit, he likes to watch my chassis react off the line an feed me data when I get back to the pitts (9-10sec later) after a pass. Besides he learns alot from watching me drive in a HeadsUp format, I do more driving than a Sprint car driver some days....little tires an big nitrous hits cause that!

We'll see, I'll just spectate if I get a chance to go. We'll see how work is looking at the end of the week. We're short handed with vacations and whatnot, and one guy is in the hospital. If I can get some rest this week I'll go, if not, I'll just relax here. I'm done for the year with my car. Figure I'll go out on a positive note, right?
