Been driving the car a little bit, getting more comfortable with it. Drove it to a local car show around 20 miles from my house on fri in 100 plus heat. Car did great, was able to get run it hard through third from a dead stop. Very impressive to say the least. I have it at 10 psi boost right now. Data log shows some pretty impressive acceleration. cool to have the times on the data log also. I can safely say that my 0-100 time is a lot faster than most "supercars".
Hey, i think i saw you guys at long beach grand prix at the indoor section? You guys had a booth? Crazy stuff over there!!!!

Thanks for the update on my website, I just found that out yesterday. I don't keep up with it very good and it got hacked recently. My guy fixed it today so it should be up again in a day or two once it gets checked out by google and whoever.
Sorry if anybody got spamed or virused... not sure what it was doing or tryign to do.
I am in LA now with the car doing some stuff with hotrod magazine so an article is coming.... don't know when. Ran it on Westech performance dyno today, did drags yesterday, autocross tomorrow!! Sorry results are top secret for the moment.
Congratulations on the magazine coverage, the car absolutely deserves it. Can't wait for the 'secret' performance numbers.
Thanks! All I can say is.... it made more this time, some minor tune changes slightly better fuel curve and things go good! Drags were fun was only able to make one pass (more info later) autocross was fun got to really push this car hard for the first time and I was very pleased with the all around performance. I think it is safe to say we turned some heads and surprised most involved
Bored today so looking through some things on the forum when I stumbled on this. This is quite possibly the best combination of modern hot-rodding and classic body I have ever seen. After all this, I can't wait to see 1) What you come up with for paint 2) What your actual 0-60, 0-100, 1/4 mile etc times are, and 3) What you come up with next. Please keep impressing us.
