My plan for next year is to use my tax return to buy all the suspension parts that I have been reading about on the other posts, and port n polish my intake n heads replace the rockers and fuel injectors. I think I wanna wait on switching out the for the later gen heads n intake after I can rebuild the trans just so I don't push to hard if you know what I mean.

For now I bet you could get away with 1.6 rockers.

Not bad of numbers.  You probably are at about 230whp.

I sometimes think I should stick with the gen2's, but I already committed in other plans.  I might stick my 3.1 motor on a shelf rack until I find something to put it in unless I sell it...  Which ever comes first.

It would be nice for next year if some of you guys that might live close to Cordova could help make a showing to bring our own front to the street racing scene. I guess thats why I like Cordova's midnight mayhem to get people off the streets and in a safe environment to race. Plus the people you are up against would be cars you would encounter on the street. Maybe by the Spring i'll have the bugs worked out of the Black 90 and do some tinkering with it so it could also be there.

Yea I just found a pic my friend Phil took of me at work about 9:30 in the morning after one of the Midnight Mayhem's We had to work 5hrs the Saturday after the race so I drove straight to work and set my sleeping bag on the passenger side and passed out for a few hours I think I pulled in the parking lot a 5 am or a little latter I'm always half dead after those races. :laugh:

I guess that's another advantage to not having a passenger seat installed. :laugh:

May 28 2010

Well I know I'm a little late on the posting but here we go... Even dealing with the fact that I was dealing with the crap from having that guy in the jeep pull out in front of me the day before race day. To that Friday I went and picked up the 89 from the shop that towed it from the scene. I had finished paying for the tow and when I went to leave, I backed into the Owner of the shops wife's Toyota Solara convertible. Talk about some real bad luck. Other than that B.S. I got to Cordova at a decent time and the races were good I lost my first one to a nice 60's Malibu or chevelle I'm not sure we were head to head most of the way but he pulled on me at the end of the track.
 Run #2 was easy It was a Toyota Corolla it looked fast if that is even a statement.
 Run #3 was the same Colbolt SS I raced last year and wasted him. I didn't feel too bad he was pretty cool to talked to I think he was from Peoria and has heard of the TGPs so all in all I had to cut my racing short due to the fact that I could feel the car pulling harder on the right then the left. The reason why was because the sub frame shifted back on the drivers side and forward on the right from the impact I hope its not totally bent but not too worried. The best I could do was 14.2 @ 93 ish mph I guess not bad for just taking the hit that it did.

July 2 is coming up quick and I know I don't have the time to do all I want to. I'll keep you guys posted.

Well July 2 was interesting I show up to Cordova and pay my admission. The Lady checked my my license, and realized it had been expired since my birthday which was June 1, and almost didn't get to race! Thankfully she recognized me as always being there for midnight mayhem, and allowed me to race but told me to get it renewed asap. So after clearing that hurtle I pulled in, parked, filled out my info card and for my friends to park. My buddy Aaron drove my Black TGP there giving Shifter a ride down from Beloit. Then I went through tech and got in the staging lanes. Over the loud speaker I could hear the guy talking about rules and starting to enforce them: If you are racing your shirts must have sleeves, pants not shorts (strike 2 I was wearing shorts) no flip flops, 14secs and faster must wear a helmet. So aside from a rough start. I was surprisingly able to avg my 14.1 ish in the quarter. I ran against a Fox body GT 5.0 a 99 or 00 mustang GT and one both of those. My only loss was to a supercharged Cobra ( go figure I'm not immune to snake bites yet) then my last race I blew away a power-stroke. I was happy with the car since The insurance company took so long to cut me a check, I didn't get to do any repairs or repairs. So now i have just about two months to tear down and swap motors and replace the damaged parts.

P.S. I scored a 3.4 dual overhead cam powered sub frame from Murry's junkyard this past Saturday after the races, when I went to pick up a motor for my wife's Bonneville.

Not much to report on this past Midnight Mayhem I beat a '00 mustang bullet, lost to a firebird due to major wheel spin and wheel hop ( I lost my slicks to a blow out coming back from a W-body meet, because of bad alignment and driving on them since the accident.) so I've been stuck with my kumo escatas. I lost to a z06 corvette, beet a a little hatch back honda, and smoked a powerstroke. even after taking out the stock drivers seat and putting in a baja buster off road seat my quarter mile time hasn't moved past 14.1 but on a 14.7 pass I turned a 97mph trap speed due to all the wheel spin. I just bought some Nitto drag radials off ebay for $273 free shipping I hope those will hold me over for a while. I only have one Midnight mayhem left for the season.

Nittos are good :icon_mrgreen:..........are you doing the other suspension mods?

Make sure you warm the tires and "saw" them a little.

I would like to get Judd's strut stoppers made but with other projects piling back up I will have to wait for a new season on those. What is "saw" the tires? I also have new struts for the front I haven't had time to put in as well.
