I was hoping to make it to your spring trip, at least for a "trial run", but not going to make it now. Outfront is not receiving the ecu's on order. Absolutely no fault of John's, though. My progress is slow because most of my build is experimental, but getting closer.


are his ecuns coming from australia?  last i knew he was using the link ecu's. i have wondered why he hasn't changed to something local to the usa?? well i hope he gets a shipment in soon so you can test and tune. fall trip should be fun!

No, he recommends the Stinger for my project. But they have been discontinued, and he talked them into making him some, one more time. He has mentioned problems such as Chinese holidays, etc. He thinks 2 more weeks, so I am going to go ahead and widen my front end and finish up as much small stuff as possible.

I'm running the Stinger. I have not been total happy with it. It does work.  just not tuning friendly.

The forecast looks pretty good to me.  A few chances of rain, but overall, perfect weather for drinking beer in the sand.  I would guess the biggest group to be Thursday?  I heard sandsavior might be down that day?

I run a 6860 Motorsports,  It is antiquated too.  And going by the wayside.  Thinking about going with the new Holley stuff like Jerry just put in his.

If I believe I cannot do something it makes me incapable of doing it. But when I believe that I can, then I acquire the ability to do it , even if I didn't have it at the beginning.

That would be a good choice.

The old saying that any trip you can load the car up under its' own power is a good trip is just BS. I swear these Brodix heads are truly trying my patience.
