    A few updates, The car is running pretty well. I have been driving it around some and doing some street tuning with it. I have destroyed a set of drag radials I had in the last two weeks or so in the process. The small radiator and fan setup actually maintains 180 degrees or so even with 95 to 100 degree heat we have been having. It has a 7lb spring in the wategate and it has no problem getting there and blowing the tires off doing it on the street. I really havnt been able to load the motor at all but I think I have a pretty good handle on the tune. I got a couple small things to tidy up on it this week but I think were gonna try to take it to the track next Friday night and see how it does. Ill get some videos of it.
