    Here is a working man's drag car!

    A couple years back the wife and I got a chnace to ride in 1000hp 57 chevy,, the burn out were crazy throwing me back in the seat, and the run, I could hardly breathe. a 6 sec 1/8 mile at 100 mph. Butch the owner said he would want to run 1/4 mile as it was tough enough keeping it straight on 1/8 mile track, constantly swing back and forth.

    Nice looking wall, I build a 15 x 35 foot wall once with keystone using a grid tie back 7-11 feet back in 1995. Your wall look easier to construction the tee shape block I used were 90 pounds each and use pins. I like your desgn, what the free standing maximum height recommended. I just saw I can go 10.5 feet, with the base course using a 5 foot deep block 2 rows then 3 deep blocks. wow!!!

        I have  already read the section on disconnecting the rear emergency brake cables.  I need to replace mine with 2002 SB cables.  I don't know why the wrecking yard always torch the cable off.  Quick and dirty.

      We get occasional cash from England from our family for birthday gifts.  It just a little less hassle than a check and having you to run it to the bank, or do the new bank photo copy thing,  I haven't tried that yet.  I like to cash the check when I sell packard parts.  I tearing two apart right now.

  15. no not for edge comp at this time. I running a smarty and the edge is not very compatibl, to much timing. Most of the time my TST is off since installing Mach-4 the smoke is just to much a light and low throttle untila t least 10 pounds boost and doesnn't clear until 20 psi.. The TST was a excellent combination with my old mach 2.3, , I was greedy going to the M-4, thinking of down sizing the injectors.
