Steve, ive got the camera ready ! Its about time !!!!

in the states my set up runs 12's, which still amazes me

but seeing as like vic (Batman) in some ways, we are both running the only 2 systems sold in europe of the Explorer Express Hipo/extreme/ nitrous/meth etc etc etc wailing banshee

I can see new PB's coming for the pair of us,

would be great to run with Vic, just so we can both see what works & what improvements we can both come up with.

After a three year break from racing I am itching to get going again now, especially now the suns come out and summer is just around the corner. However, with my car in bits it may be next year before I am back out and racing with you guys again. But, when I do come out to play I am aiming for 12s.

Yeah I got a car out now just want it tuned then I can think about hitting it harder ran 13.4 at 103 at the Mopars with a 2.0 60 foot so I'd say there's a 12 in it.

well i have achieved half of my goals so far . escort went faster than the van has ever done on its first run with a shake down run of 11.96 and not even running correctly at the time due to a major stumble just off idle so smashed my old time , but to be fair to the van when i set the 12.59 run i did so with a sick motor that only had 7 working pistons had it been running on all 8 the old van would have been well into the 11's but hay ho :roll: :D . since then the escort has pretty much improved on every run since and still hasn't put in a run without its off idle stumble . had to make a good few changes to improve the way the car drives on and off the track and the new motor is very different to its previous one so the next goal is to beet the car own no gas time which i don't think will take long now especially as i think i may have fixed the stumble problem then my new goal will be to beat its time on the gas :twisted: :twisted:

Well, after a bit of a wasted season, I think I have it sussed. WOT operated NOS switch worked every time by hand, but you can't drive like that! After Shakey, I weighed the bottle and I have used bugger all gas in around 15 runs this year. I wasn't operating the switch by foot, it put a bit of twist on the pedal and missed the switch.
System in now NOS bottle and braided line and I have used the old sniper solenoid as a purge. The rest is Wizard of Nos Maximiser triggered by their electronic WOT TPS. All them big letters LOL. Scary, this modern technology. I can alter all parameters by buttons now :?
Just hope I can get Sunday.
