    Thats a crack up Jim, I was watching it thinking, dang that looks like
    the video I did a little while back, except I put the camera on the
    road ... AND mine didnt end with being rolled by the Police.

            Turned up the PC volume to max, hit the go button with the mouse and WOW. The cool sounds even drew the wife out of the kitchen to check it out. Thanks Jim for going to the extra effort to share it with us[8D].

              Bob,

              My intent is to attend and run at the PSMCDR, the only thing could hold me back is my workload at University since classes start early this year. I'll be finding out that real soon. Classes start Sept 4

              I will not be as competitive as I would like due the rear ratio that I currently have in the Hawk. I've been looking for a 3.73:1 TT Dana 44 without any luck.

              I am also looking to put together a small tuning crew for the pits. You have to have a tuning crew don't you?

              (My girlfriend just doesn't cut it but she's great on a portable BBQ)

              Hum,... who comes to mind?

              Nelson Bove, Tim Kobernick, Bob Palma?

              A big hurdle for a pit crew this year is having two events starting at virtually the same time.

                      Last summer I street raced a Ferrari....He beat me.....But I sounded better!
                      Those "Canuck" repro pipes are a tiny bit louder than stock, but I like it!
                      What was the verdict on the supercharger repair?
