FED test at Sac Feb. 11
I have The Fourdyce digger loaded in the trailer. We're headed to Sac to find out how fast this things gona run.. The weather looks like like it will hold, and Earl is exited to get to make passes in his FED for the first time. Think good thoughts tomarrow and I'll report back on Sun. with the test results.
Mon, Feb. 20th. 9 days till the March meet.
This weekends test at Famosa was real good. I had four cars in the lanes at one time a couple of times. Earl's dragster is still too fast for NE/3 and the converter needs to be replaced. Krista's dragster Ran good on Sat 7.63 178 but the Trans had issues on sun. My NE/2 car was perfect, 8.53 8.54 8.56. Then we found the old Chassis broke on Sun and I didn't get to run on day two. My Jewel made a total of 14 passes in the wonder wagon as she is prepairing for her first March Meet.
The tranny shop has both Earl and Krista's wounded stuff and both will be ready to go soon. Chris Kurtis, aka Mr. Incredible will repair my old Tuttle chassis one night this week and if the weather warms up just a little the 8.60 index will come to me. The wonder Wagon was good both days and Jewel is feeling great about her first March meet.Her lights were coming around and she feels real comfortable in the car.
Thats the report from the Bedrock camp, Good luck to all and See you in the lanes
25 Hours and 35 minutes later back at the Bedrock compound with The satisfaction of running Earl's Dragster at Sac 6 times. He was Spectacular on his first Run. Injecter blades set at WFO launched at 4000 rpm and The Fourdyce digger climbed the ring gear and put the front tires about 7 feet in the air. After the first hit, It's gona need a wheelie bar! After making a few adjustments and adding 40 lbs to the nose the next 5 runs were good, small wheelies and straight down the 1320. We had High hopes that it would get into the 8's, but the best we could get was a 9.14 @ 141. We are still trying to get the handle on the fuel system. I Know we left some ET on the table.
The bottom line is we are 5 runs closer to where we want to be, with 2 more days of testing before we head to the 2012 March meet.
Look for pics and videos on the Fourdyceracing's F.O.A.T home.
