ScottRods Hot RodNationals at the Funny Car Nationals
US 131 Motorsports Park
Martin, Mi 49070

This is a beautiful trace, on the par with Norwalk, in my opinion the second nicest track we race at.

Weather should be beautiful, not hot.

Are you coming?







As you can see there will be people in the stands, and the track has great lights for night racing

I am pretty disgusted. We had the tune up perfect before we broke the crankshaft. Now we are struggling to get it back again. We went out the first round AGAIN. Went .0058 seconds to quick.

On the last event thread I was talking about two cylinders being hot and the rest cold. It was suggested to tilt the the injectors towards the hot cylinder. That worked!

One race left in the season.

Next season we should have the new engine, so search for a tune up will start all over again. Will be running a 7.0 index. Spud has returned the fuel system with a suggested start point.
