    She normally parks it in the garage, but she wanted to show it off a little yesterday. I am hoping it will run mid-10's on pump gas. I've tried to make it as simple as I could for him so he doesn't ever have to mess with it. I'd like for him to be able to load up one of his many kids, drive to the track, click off some 10's and drive home without any drama or issues. Not sure on weight with the SBF. With the BBF it was 3010. Probably still close to that.

    Yeah, drove it around a little this weekend. Put maybe 20 miles on it.

    Had an old manual brake kit for the bbf days. It sucked. Strange front brakes and stock rear drums. Talked to MM and got some tech tips. Saw a vacuum booster in the shelf so got some MM parts and now it stops awesome. Got some oversize rear wheel cylinders from them too to help. Seems to.

    Finally. FINALLY! I got a chance to work on the Red Baron. Its mu brothers 1979 Coupe project. Started life as a 2.8l 6cyl c4 auto car. It had dual glass packs when we got it and when doing donuts one night we noticed it sounded like an old bi-plane, hence the name. My brother and I built it in the 90s with a stock 460 out of a 73 Lincoln. Put some PAW dome pistons and a small solid in it. Ran it for years in the FFW and NMRA doing True Street. It ran very consistent 11.00. One day for no reason at all, it chucked a rod out coming off the trailer. That was 2008-2009. Been sitting since. I traded off all the bbf stuff for a sbf turbo setup. I sold the turbo off and it sat on the shelf ever since. Recently I noticed I had an engine, a turbo, and turbo kit. I bought some parts for it over the last year or two as they came available. So I finally dug it out and started tinkering on it. Took it out of the garage under it's own power today. Setup: 306 GT40P TFS 1 cam 80# inj. MS2 v3 C4 8.8 3.73 33spl spool All the chassis stuff Currently on gate pressure and messing around a little today saw 6psi so that's a good starting point. Got to tune it and then haul it down to AL where it can rot into the ground in his yard.

    THe one I had, I turned any DTCs to non-reporting and ran it through and had no problems. YMMV, IDK, GLWS.

    Last time I went with an OBD2 car I had rear O2s off in tune and "Not Readied" and "Not existant" and it passed.

    I would get mauled by a 15lb cat, much less 80lb.

    I'd like to see this on a Twister game board. How did he pin it's back legs and then get a foot on it's neck?
