    I get to move up again!
    Went 11.97 at 114.97 today! With a1.81 60'

    At a svelte 5400 lb race weight.
    Not too bad for 359cid of compression ignition fury!
    I have a larger primary turbo coming for more power,
    and better brakes in the works, so i can hold it on the line to shorten my60' tines,

    Shooting for cage territory... Will see in the spring!

    Changed to .81 turbine housings at the GS nats this year and improved to an 11.76.The 60' time was a 1.78.


    I may change to .69 housings just to see what happens.

    :grin:

    It won't be long and I'll be maxed out, though. Stock rods and all that.

    Will take quite a bit of :dollar: for me to catch up after you pass me!

    Really need to get the Riv back to the track. I know I can cut 2 to 3 seconds off her old time.

    Went to the track today. It was nearly perfect air and I think the car did as well as she's going too with the current tune. I could probably break into the 13's with a little more carb and timing. It drives very well as it is and I dont see a need to make changes right now. Heres the slip.

    Finally, got to the track after 3 years of ownership. Made 5 runs, all faster than the last. My mph seemed pretty consistent the whole time. I need to adjust the shift point from 1st to 2nd another 1000rpm as it was shifting at 4000 but all in all the car acted great. Not bad for a 4400lb boat with no tune.
