Back to the track
« on: November 11, 2020, 10:30:39 AM »
Took the car out to Piedmont last sunday. Finally it's running right. Nice day, Ran 5.27  then added 20 percent and ended up with a 4.97.  Not to bad for a low dollar 350. Hopefully the weather will clear up for another weekend run sometime this year.

Sat. the 5th will be more or less a test and tune day. I think Sun. will be an actual race. I haven't ran mine since I added a vacuum pump setup on it, so I'm just curious as to if it picks it up any at all. Plus it is about the last chance to get out and play locally until spring.
