I raced there in 70s and 80s when it was Class runs ,Not the dial in .I liked it much better showed the driver and builder skills , it is a 1000 ft track now ,,less than a 1/4 but more than a 1/8 so still some good times .

|496CHEVY3100||Just noticed in the picture ,all the trash I had piled up to go in the truck for land field,, if you notice the blue barrel in photo that says metal only..shows how foolish I was,when I would replace cams and lifters,oi; pumps etc , I would throw the old ones in barrel for scrap metal ,when I started to load it to go to recyclers ,my cherry picker would NOT pick it up it would just raise rear wheels of the ground ,,had to unload by hand .|

|dsraven||hey, matts37. I have an elcheapo deluxe blasting cabinet from princess auto (our version of harbor freight up here in Canada) and I use an old built in vacuum cleaner from a house. it works pretty good and has the option to drop out the collection tray underneath to dump out the particles collected. it may have too much vacuum but thay is ok too. it makes it easy to get your hands into the gloves in the machine if they are being "sucked in" from the vacuum inside the box. I use shop vac hose to connect the box to the vacuum, and there is a baffle inside the box so th vacuum doesn't pick up everything close to the outlet of the box, just the dusty stuff.|

I am never sure what qualifies as "working on" or not.
I did get some parts during the day while at work, and did some homework on the computer when I got home.
Does that count?
Anyway, today I picked up some short (14ish") glasspacks from a co-worker, that I am going to try and use for tailpipe/resonators on the 38 to tone down the exhaust some.
It's has flowmasters, and they are way to loud for my tastes.
I have also been working on (collecting parts) for a dust collector on my HF sandblasting cabinet.
Originally I was going to use the airbox/filter from an ATV, but I just found a nice sized intake filter housing from a small Cat diesel on a roller that was being replaced at work.
So I am going to use it instead, pics to follow.
