      the "Raunchero"

      And what you may not have seen was the bit of genius at the starting line. So at this point in the race finals, there was five of us left. The fastest car gets a pass, the other two get to chose who to run. Instead of running each other, the fast car chose to run us. The truck runs 8.50s, we have to work hard to run 10.0s flat...

      What you may not have seen was when the S-10 pre-staged, we pre-staged, the S-10 lit the stage light, wound up his turbos...and we did nothing...as soon as he let the turbos spin down, we staged, lit the tree and launched. Screwed that dude up big time. That's an old top fuel tactic. We broke out by running under 10.0 anyway, but what a way to end it!!

      As I understand it, some other forum has nicknamed our car the "Bamchero" and the announcers started calling me the Bamchero dude. Bamchero crew chief is more like it, but dude is close enough.

      What a week.

            the "Raunchero"

            I appreciate the support! I know it's pretty much me and you, H80N, here chit chattin', but I hope some others have found some enjoyment in ready our banter.

            That was a brutal event on a drag car (any car for that matter!) and very demanding on us as individuals. I'm gonna go home now and sleep until Tuesday.

              I for one have enjoyed the exchanges. I know nothing about racing but you guys obviously have it together. Great job! Thanks for posting.

                the "Raunchero"

                Well I don't know about having it together, considering we've never drag raced until this last May!

                The bracket race was especially surprising, we weren't even sure how it all went until that day!

                The heads up racing on Saturday was challenging. There are no classes, just everyone against everyone. So there were some really far eschew races, but nobody MADE us bring a 10 second car to the track.

                Glad you enjoyed the read though!

                  Well, you sure had something together for the kind of showing you made. Very impressive, and very cool!

                      Its real east to try and take the kitchen sink with you on the trip. But it was the littlest of repairs that gave me the biggest fit...

                      Along the way, we stopped at this tire shop to get our new slicks mounted to the rims. While Mike was instructing the tire shop guys on how to properly mount a drag slick, I found a small piece of wood that held the tool box in place had succumbed to the bouncy bounce of the mid-west's ice eaten roads. I guess the seventeen staples I put in that strip of wood wasn't enough. So what was the one thing I DIDN'T have in my arsenal? Wood screws. I ran across the street to NAPA, surely they'd have something, with the "NAPA know how..." and all that. They darn sure had some "know how"...knew how to take my money. The best thing they had was some 1.5" stainless sheet metal screws that cost me nearly $5 for a pack of 8 of them or something ridiculous like that. That was my only hope. So I bought them and got back to the trailer. Ask yourself this...When was the last time I drove some 1.5" screws into plywood with a screwdriver? And it still isn't fun...At least I had some drills to make pilot holes.

                        A little wax on the screws reduces the pain a bit.....

                              Cooler weather now, took the Bamchero out to the track just for grins, no changes except the old tune and carb jets we used to run on this track, made three passes...9:97...9:93 and 9:89....badabing.

                              Still haven't washed her.
