    still running on gas. i want to try as much as i can with the carb set up before switching to alcohol. i might even try the tunnel ram before the alcohol.

    i want to change front springs. there are 350 lbs and i want to try 215-230 lbs springs.

    It’s been a long winter. Wish it was time to race. Racing starts at the end of May so I had to watch a few videos from last year.

    Engine is back in car. Few more things to bolt up but the end is near.

    I even had my wife turning some wrenches

    It's getting closer. I've got the NHRA season opener in Pomona on in the living room. It's not live so, not sure exactly when it was run (yesterday maybe?). One thing about drag racing. Listening to it is almost as good as actually watching it, at least when the announcers STFU so you can hear the cars :rolleyes:

    I ordered new front springs for my shocks. I’m going to a lighter spring to hopefully get more front end travel.
    I ordered from summit this morning. Probably get them in 7-10 days

    PrincessAuto workbench? If so, do you like it? Was going to buy, but the CanadianTire Maximum with the steel pegboard caught my eye instead.

    not a princess auto bench. i had a buddy that worked at a potash mine and they were remodeling there so he asked if i wanted it. it's heavy gauge steel that is screwed onto the wood frame
