    In line for tech inspection at gateway motor speedway outside of St. Louis. There are some bad home built mammer jammers here so.

    We got a stock filler tube and took the locking dipstick out of 2012 Chevy silverado. We'll have to cut the length down by a lot, but it should work!

    Depends on what they'll accept. Certain things they require a part that has been specifically manufactured for that purpose. I'm delaying our start so I can hit the speed shop quick. I'll get whatever they have, which will almost certainly be for a GM product. Then we'll adapt it before tech.

So we'll fabricate something in the morning before we leave and hope it passes. If not, we're screwed. If it was a GM product, we might be able to find something between here and there, but it's a ford. We'll see.
    Worst case... How about AIRCRAFT SAFETY WIRE...???

    We didn't even want to put a scoop on the hood, but we couldn't fit the engine in without a scoop or a big hole. But even so, guys that know just look at it and smile. We get tons of looky loos in the pit after our first run of the day at the strip. People just can't believe how good it runs. I tell people not to get too close, they'll end up wiping off my strategically place dirt and greasy hand prints.

    I for one am really looking forward to hearing Drag Week progress/adventure reports
    from Ryan and his gang on the road...&.. Dragstrip

    I really like the Q-Ship idea with a raggety exterior.. stuffed with monster mechanicals...
    Perfect guise to get the pretty boys to laugh at .... JUST BEFORE... they get their doors blown off....

    I think I can manage a little of that. Been tied up busy last week and this weekend and all this coming week for last minute prep. A little bit of welding, some re-wiring and packing out little trailer with probably too much stuff. But ya know, the one part I don't take is the one part we'll need.

    The top solenoid is the nitrous one, we needed to turn 90 degrees, and those brass fittings are what we had so it's what we used. You can see it's mostly AN, but what isn't got sealer, like going into the manifold.
