    Grand Monkey changes

    I dropped the car off on Monday at Pauls High Performance. They are busy installing a Turbo 400 with a transbrake in her. The Gear Venders Overdrive unit should be arrivng soon. She should be up and ready to go out and play this spring. The tranny looks like it will fit with very little problems. This car has been down for 2 years now so I am getting a little trigger happy. Should be quite the beast this time. It went 10.88 @129.7 before it broke the tranny.

    Thats with no gas Chris! The sixty foot was 1.76 so you have an idea of what was going on. It had no tire spin either. The new tranny has a brake and more converter in it so I expect things will improve. I am getting geeked up about it now! It also scaled at 4700 pounds!!!! she is a true heavy weight!

    Its pretty sobering when you factor the weight Chris. Pull the weight and add some gas to it and it would be right with Shermans car!

    You guys need to go on a diet. The cars are not heavy, something else is adding the weight. Put nitrogen in the tires. HINT

    You got that right Joe! The car has stereo, roll bar and a lot of other stuff in her. Bet she picks up a couple more pounds with the new changes. I doubt I try to put her on a diet. A lot is going on thru out the car. It had enough wire in it to start a copper mine.
