        It's been a long while between posts!

        We've added Fuel Injection to the Falcon. Still working on a "race" tune up, but right now it has a fairly safe air/fuel ratio with a bit of retarded timing. So it should buy us some time to sneak up on the tune up.

        OK, we rebuilt, ran 15 passes and grenaded again at the Nostalgia races at Speedworld. Good news is we did a new best ET of 10.89 at 122mph at 15 lbs of boost. The timing chain let loose on the last past. Going an 11.27 (breaking at the 1000ft)against a big block Hemi!!! So, with Manley Rods, Clas

        Added a Total Control Rack & Pinion and a Ron Morris coil over setup.
        This will enable us to lower the car a little more and have much better steering geometry when the front suspension is extended.

      • Getting closer!

        Well Kelly and I are still working her Falcon. The new 1/2" fuel lines are complete. Fuel pump arrives today, will install tonight.
        Wiring is going slow. Removal of the old harness without doing the destruction method is time consuming. But we'll get there!
        Later,
