    Haven't moved much on anything. Just got our hands on a supercharger, might put that on the Bamchero in place of the nitrous. Haven't even rebuilt the rear shock mounts that we broke during drag week. Just felt like running the beast again.

      I sure need to check back here more often! I was at Gateway on the first day and watched most of the feeds. I would have liked to be able to meet you this time around but next year if you punish yourself through it again will be good. Thanks for the great play by play. Jeff.

          They called the other day asking for some more specs on the Bamchero. Supposed to be more coming out in next month's mag and the roadkill mag is supposed to come out this Friday. Probably be in that. Being the only crewman (crew chief of one!) most of the stuff will be about Mike. He's the real genius behind it all anyway. Next month's hotrod Mag will have more on the street eliminator class, which is what most were in, including us.

                  Drag Week this year is most likely out, found our rearend housing is bent...and that was just the thing that put us over the budget we set. <br />
                  <br />
                  Looking at the standing mile...<br />
                  <br />
                  Two things going for us:<br />
                  <br />
                  1. Our lug pattern just so happens to be the same as nascar wheels, which we know can stand up to that speed and duration.<br />
                  2. We're friggin' nuts. <br />
                  <br />
                  We shall see.

                      I did my drivers test in the station wagon version of that car. All of my buddies parents had wagons at that time. Pre SUV's...Bob

                        I love old wagons turned into drag cars. "Always bet on the old wagon..." My uncle Larry used to say. <br />
                        <br />
                        We don't want to dump any money back into swapping a rear end at the moment...we have a plan for something....narrower....soon. <br />
                        <br />
                        But, I did get a tool to straighten this one. If we can get it straightened out, then the October standing mile down in Corpus Christi could be next on the radar. But, after reading the stupid rules (which are always a bummer), we have some things to consider. Dang it. But I guess it's all for safety's sake.

                            Hadn't got to it yet. The tool is basically just a rod and end cap, slides down inside the axle tube, you chain it down to the table and use a press to bend it whichever way you need to. Keep bending until the cap on the end of the "axle" slides into place of the bearing. It's done quite a bit with dirt track cars, although I've never done it. Apparently the circle track guys do this sort of thing all the time.
