Mr. Carlson and I made the long journey to Ashcroft B.C. last weekend for the Langley Loafer's Old Time Drags. Weather was perfect all weekend although the air was a bit dense and it's surprising to see clouds in this video since it was almost always blue skies and scorching sun with a reasonably consistent tail wind.
We did a few upgrades over the winter that really tightened up our program; first and foremost we ditched the sleepy 4.11 gears for some aggressive 4.89s. We also sent out our valve body to Turbo Action to have it converted into a full manual reverse pattern which meant that I also had to switch the buttons around on our push button shift panel. Not an easy task but it looks and performs pro. Another upgrade we did, which may sound trivial, is to replace the chrome, period correct looking tach with a monster tach and functioning shift light. It looks wrong in a car like ours but we want to win some races.
