Took The Vitamin C To The Track Last Night

Put a spare 580ci motor into the Vitamin C and a Dallas built transmission. Track had no prep and car did a lot of tire spinning down the track. clicked off a pair of 10.05 with horrible 60s on greasy track and bad air. This is the first pass. Second pass was giant wheel stand without the bounce but not video’d. Figures. Car is pretty heavy at 3800+ with me. Zero fiberglass, zero Lexan, Dana rear… and very small (29″ because MT didn’t have any 31″ when I needed slicks in Bradenton) slicks. Pretty happy with the car. Is easily a 9.7 car with a little tuning, converter change and 31″ slicks, and good track.

It will be the back up and raced locally while I race the Whale this year and finish the Thug (well under way). Next year I’ll run the Thug while the Whale is totally rebuilt, like the Thug is being. When Whale finished the Thug will be back up and the Vitamin C will be totally rebuilt and go on a severe diet to get drop about 500 pounds.

Hope graduates High School next year and we might see about getting her in a car, depending on college situation.
