    Those "Canuck" repro pipes are a tiny bit louder than stock, but I like it!
    What was the verdict on the supercharger repair?

    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.

    We'll all be there, Allen, wrenches in hand! 'Hope to see you. BP

    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].

    Great Video!

    I was stopped last week in my R2 Hawk after leaving a traffic light that enters a dark industrial area of town. I absolutely nailed the throttle when the light changed to green. I made it about 3/4 of a mile down the road before I noticed the blue and reds flashing behind me.

    It was a beautiful night the roads were dry after a huge rain storm that had pasted earlier that evening and I decided to take my girlfriend out for a nighttime cruise.

    The cop told me I was speeding and I quickly replied that I didn't think so. The industrial area had a road that was posted at 45 MPH. He replied "you left that mini van at the lights behind in the dust" I suggested that there was a difference between speeding and taking off fast. I took off FAST and did not burn out off the line (for a big change)and reiterated that I was not speeding. I wound the engine up to 4500 RPM in first slapped her into 2 (small chirp) and the wound her back up the 4500 RPM again and put her into drive and coasted back down to the speed limit. That was when I saw the lights!

    The cop asked me for the usual DL/insurnance/registration. I had a hard time finding the insurance and He was pointing his flashlight at my wallet then moving it down the side of my Black Hawk checking it out. I told him the light was helpful and he said "oh ya" and pointed it back into the car. I found all my stuff and He left for 5 minutes, came back and was asking me about the car and what engine I had in the car.(the engine was still rumbling) I told him it was a stock factory supercharged 289, and he went on about his engine in his cop car. I mentioned I was just practicing my take off for the PSMCDR being held in a couple of weeks. We talked for a few more minutes and I asked him if we want to race? He said "he'd like to but he couldn't!"

    He told me to have fun, take it easy and you were SPEEDING!

    Not staged. All I did was edit out the spaces where the car was turning around. The officer was investigating a dead horse complaint and drove across a pasture to get to the road I was on. Turns out, he lives in the house I was raised in. He told me about another stretch of road where the kids run their bikes. We agreed this place was better and he told me to have fun with the car.
