We should get some dates together for Races we want to go to. I think there are a few trophies leftover from last years batch (Thanks again Mr.Z)
last year our first outing was at Sunset April 11th, hopefully we can get a list together to vote on at the next meeting so we can hammer out a few opportunities for Little Z get his name on the King of the hill list lol never know maybe Rocky will show Skip a thing or two....

Stay tuned L.T. I am very interested in the 8.90 index it sounds like a blast. I am looking forward to Quaker and Thompson plus some of the other tracks mentioned. It won,t be every weekend but I,ll go as far as my money will take me.

I'm not gonna be beating on my stuff too much this summer. Gonna pull out the old rear this weekend and start the four link. Hopefully I'll be done with that in 3 or 4 weekends. Gonna hit up Thompson and a few other well treated tracks when I feel like it. There's no chance I'll have a shot at the King title, wait till you see what Dad went and did this winter. I'm hoping for some 8.70's or 8.80's on motor on the 29.5x10.5s, and maybe spray a few 1/8 mile passes to see what it'll do. I won't have any wheelie bars on til mid or late summer probably, so I gotta tame it down on the line to keep it off the bumper. Don't want any more scares this summer. Outlaw Limited Street is not gonna happen because I refuse to put mufflers on my car, there's no room, and I'm not working 3 weeks to make room for them. Gonna run the 8.90 deal and hope not to break out too much.

Don, when you say muffler, do you mean a real honest to goodness muffler, or do the kind that look like just a swollen hunk of pipe at the end of the collector qualify as a muffler ? Also, are wheelie bars going to be allowed in OLS ? I know they don't go with the street class image the organization wants, but just for pure safety reasons they should be allowed.

glasspacks are considered mufflers from an inspection standpoint, also the tuck up underneath car pretty good too

Skip, heck you could bolt on 8 Flowmasters to each pipe ! The added weight should help with the wheelies too. Plus, you'd have your 15 minutes of glory on You Tube also ! lol

Dan, a 4" long burns muffler is a muffler in all classes that I'm away of. I guess Milan and Thompson have both dropped the muffler rule, so I'll be legal for OLS or 8.90. It'll just depend on my mood I guess.

Wheelie bars are also legal in OLS, not so much in the radial only tire classes. All I gotta do is pop them off if the rules change regarding that. Well, after I have some that is....

Yeah I know...I'd run them though if you were buyin'. I'll even put your name on the car if you'd like!

Got my old rearend out and got the new housing narrowed to the propep length. Third member is in, filler bung and cap are installed, and the drain is installed. Ordering axles tomorrow and hopefully get the ladder bar brackets cleaned out of the car next weekend and maybe start tacking in the four link brackets. Got a few weeks of work, but I'm getting started.
