Here's what has happened lately.  Passenger seat shell has been installed.  With rails to run it front to back.  Has a video update with it.  Maybe it'll help someone get this piece done pretty quick.

Whoever would like to see the LT1 running on a single fuel injector...

I'll be showing the car this coming May 19th through 21st at the Carlisle Import and Performance Nationals event.  Sounds like we'll have a handful of cars representing us there!   ::bounce

Come on out and see us.  :-)

Thanks,
Coop

Got to drive the car 2 days in a row!  Another first!  And I also got to crank the car in colder weather than ambient temps would allow.  It said 48 outside in the Sun, but the wind chill was much colder than that.  Anyhow, still another first.  I also got to run the fumes so rich that I killed the engine.  So you know you can make all the power you can stand if you're capable of enriching the fuel to the point of flooding the motor.  :-D

Sorry the video isn't so hot, most of the time the phone lived under my drivers seat, but you can still hear everything including the commentary at the end.  Exciting times y'all.  Making history...all over again!  ;-)

Got to drive the car again today!  That was fun!  :-D Always gets my attention when there are small explosions.  ha ha!

It's all good.  I drove it right after I shot this video too.  Just didn't make a video of that drive.  Was too busy monitoring everything and just making sure the tires don't flat spot.  :-)  I'll drive it more now that I have electric heat in it for the fumes.  I need to cycle the heater so it doesn't get too hot and it'll be good to go after that.

I've finally got another update!  This one is about the fails that I've recently racked up in the heating dept. on fumes and what not to do.  :-)  Good to know, so I'm sharing it.

Sorry it's been so long without an update.  I'm getting a few little things done once in a while, just not posting about it.  I'm about to start an adventure into Smokey Yunick's territory with his hot vapor engine idea. I'm deciding what turbo will go on my motor for this feat. Will post more updates once I've got that installed and the car starts.  I may have an interim post where I change how I meter the fuel prior to the turbo being added. I don't want too many changes at once without test runs in between. 
Thanks,
Coop

Event was a huge success.  There will be more to follow, but here's a video in the interim.  I'll post more once I get home.

Video shot from inside the car.  That left rear brake still drags when I first release it, but does quieten down once going for a bit.

Getting the car loaded up to go to Ohio for the conference.
Gonna be a good time this weekend.  I'm sure I'll be posting up pics and videos of it.

Yes, I was riding the brake a bit, you can hear it squealing.

Thanks,
Coop

Thanks man.  Hopefully I'll continue to impress once I start running on hot fumes and get off of the cold fumes.  It'll be a world of difference!  That's where I'll be able to make all the power I can stand.  :-D  My next "I can't wait" moment in time that is coming.  Here's my update for today.
