Well we headed down again tonight... Mels car ran another 12.2@114 backing up its times last week.. The big suprise was Tornado runing a 12.75@113 and Headache ran a 12.87@114. Was a good night.. Milz ran 3 13.00's with 2.3 60 fts all at 111 mph.

Far out …….
I finally after 7 attempts I manage to get some traction and a ½ decent launch and youre cranky co’s I beat you..

Kiss my ass Jonathon !!!! I told you weeks ago that that candy apple barge would be slower than my banana boat and I was Right..

What was it now? 12.7 @ 113mph in a manual six speed 2 ton boat with an old geriatric fart like me driving hahahahhaha

Admittedly the 3 other runs were disgusting and it was only when I adjusted my pacemaker that it all came together for the only good run of the night although the first run was the best hookup …just I lost that number 3 gear somewhere and took a while to find it again.

Practice Jonathon and sharpen up them stick skills and you could be in with a chance but I doubt it……The best part is the next time we race I will have the auto and you know that’s a 11 sec job without a doubt.

Does this make us the 2 fastest Manual Tornados in oz?
