Pro is still working towards his license with his fabulous 702 cubic inch Chevy. This car puts the "A" in animal. I saw the car yesterday ay New England Dragway. Pro did a burnout that would make all "SMOKEmUP Members" proud. It absolutely electrified the crowd in the stands.

Pro, this car is going to be a huge hit. I also say Pro make his first easy full pass on the car. Looked like it got a little light around a thousand feet.

FUN FUN FUN!! I had a blast yesterday. We got started a little late in the day, so again, we were only able to make one pass. It ran a 9.23 @148, not earth shattering, but it was one more step that had to be made.

Nice!
Looks like it hooks well. Excellent weight transfer on the launch.
Great to see things come together for you Pro60. Have fun keep it wheels down and safe. Looks like you have the right approach test test test.

Keep up the steady progress Mike. Congrats on the maiden voyage of the SS Bannana (j/k) I see a 6 second run @ over 200 in your future.
Just don't forget to wear your protective cup when you let that bad assed Belair hit full stride.

The car was awesome before......... now it's TOTAL AWESOME!!!
Congrats to MCAS7 and his first season with the BBC Camaro. I hope he can swing the funds to race and possibly start a family. Wouldn't be the same without him around here........

Best wishes and good luck guys.

-Andy-

getting closer and closer huh?? Well I got to go help load my friends race truck on the trailer and we thought we broke the tranny doin a quick burnout but we soon found out we just broke the welds on the rear end!!! luckily the truck hadnt even done a burnout just loaded up and died. well the driveshaft was almost pulled completely out of the tranny and the angle it went into the rear end was unreal!!! I hope you dont run into that type of problem ever pro!!!!!!!

With the rear end set-up I have this year, that's the furthest thing from my mind.
