Good guys was a blast, but too hot for me. The car kept slowing down, Made it through the first round. The guy cut a .526 light and had to brake out to get me at the line. Mine run a 15.12 on a 14.90 dial. Then the sun went down lost on a double break out. It ran a 14.78 on same dial, and I got out of it in the lights. I know this car slows in the heat, but I don't think I was getting WOT.
Got a new gas pedal to install, replace the LOKAR cruiser cable BS. Week from friday is tnt, if I hit three passes in the 13's I'll race it Saturday.
The fulie floppers were in town for Good guys.

Couldn't get in the 13's Friday. Thats the last till good guys.
Installed new kick down and throttle cables. New plugs, seems peppy enough.
