it wouldnt let me put em on it was sayin they were to big and i couldnt figure out how to shrink em......any ideas?
If you have a photo editing program, you need to change the physical size of the pic so it's no larger that 1000 pixles wide.

Then save it in a lower resolution or quality so the size of the file is less than 150kb.

But photobucket etc is easy too.

Just got on this thread again, some awsome strokers getting around herte in Aus,bagged88 what stroke are you running to get 445 with a stock block and are those the new Canfield castings that can take a hell of a lot more porting. I upgraded my original Canfields to 280cc Victors to feed the 427 I am having built at Total Flow Cylinder heads, nearly there just need a oil pan to finish things off, can't wait for your pics.

went to calder last week it was a cold nite. car wasnt running at it best but still managed some allright times. It appears to be either a fuel problem at high RPM or spark. When ever i would get it in top gear and over 6300rpm it would just pop and fart. We tried to play with tht fuel mixtures but still didnt help. i would have to back off just after 3qtr track and it still ran [email protected]

as u can see all the times are all over the place it would just depend on when and how bad it would pop! thres always neext week. this tells us at least it should ran into the 10's next time we take it out

hopefully take it out 2mrw and ran a 10sec pass ;)

Make sure they're below 1000 pixel resolution and less than 140kB in size.

well the car is back in paint fixin its boo boos's that the wall left,,we figured out what was causing it to head for the wall in the first place.....the o ring on the oil filter had blown through and was leaking but it only did it on the top end of the track so it was a hard one to find...so maybe after we pay a nother 2500 to fix the paint....it wont head for the walla anymore but hey who knows.....also i think thats my problem my pics are to big whats the easiest way to shrink them?

it appears that my auto casing is cracked all the way through, could this be due to the transbrake? or why else would it do it?
thanks

thick cast/billet style sumps are the go they fill up the big hole that is an auto's biggest strength issue (casewise), must of had a small flaw in the case. Good to hear you got it fixed
