Congratulations to the Solid Busa Bike. Way to Win!! The race in Albuquerque was a lot of fun. I lost in the 1st round. The cruise was a lot of fun, as usual. The weather was perfect. The Vega was tuned to run right at 10.20ish. It was a busy week last week trying to ge the car together. I quickley wired the nitrous through the wide open microswitch without a relay. In the 1st round, the switch failed. The scary part was, it apparently arced across the contacts and melted. I got to the finish line at 132 MPH and began to apply the brakes The car didn't seem to slow very well and before I knew it I was on the brakes VERY hard. The car WOULD NOT slow down. I finally realized the switch had failed and it was still spraying 100 HP of nitrous and fuel. Now wonder it wouldn't stop! LOL. I reached up and truned off the key and got stopped just in time. I lost to the turbo Busa Bike. Did you catch that same bike went 9.96 @ 150 later in the evening. Good times all around!! Thanks to everyone who came out. The BBQ was great. Joseph did a great job. Thanks to Eric for cooking for us.
Bad Ass Street Car!!
