    She has the tranny and overdrive installed. They replaced the rear crossmember with a custom built one after finding out how chincy the stock one is. All the N20 lines and the solenoids are mounted. They had to modify the floor to clear the Turbo 400. It all looks good. Now to get it running right with out the stock tranny. When it comes back we need to wire the bottle stuff and install the interior. 3700 converter and a trans brake with a 2 step in her this time around. Should be very interesting while I learn how to drive this thing.

    When you get it to the track would you let me know how your 60' were with the 3700 TQ. Thanks John

    John I will do that for you! With the 3200 it was 1.76 and the 3700 has not seen the track yet.. Your times appear to be very close to my car and that includes MPH. Looks like Chris is doing a good job for you! By the way I weighed in at 4700 pounds when I went 10.88 @ 129.7
    and did not spray the car. It will be a month or more before I am out to play with the Grand Monkey.

    It would be good to see you again! I have been playing with the T Bolt Tribute car while the Merc has been down. More to follow on the Bolt after she gets some new tires!

    Thanks & have fun with that bad machine. I weighed in at 4410 Lbs. last weekend & my best 60' was 1.74, we are thinking of a few changes to help it launch quicker. NO spray YET till we see what we can get without it & yes Chris is real good.
