just got back from our first race of the season. it was a brutal weekend but we ended up with the win.... at 3am. everyone was slow. first race gremlins i suppose. most frustrating was waiting on track prep. San Antonio is a great track and it hooks up well. problem is, they take forever to prep it. usually over an hour if its an oil down. car did really well though. had to tune on more stuff than i would like....fuel, tire pressure, and the wing. weather conditions were making tuning a bit of a challenge. i think the NGK plugs are giving me issues. im getting more misfire than with the Autolites. it just doesnt run as smooth and i can hear an occasional pop when its going down the track. im putting a set of Autolites back in before the next race.

Wow did I miss this one by 2 months? smoking

Nice to hear. Interesting the Autolites are not missing and the NGKs are hmm?

Just took the Chevelle out for a ride Saturday. Sad when the first ride is May 5th. Been crazy busy.

Lol, I think we're all crazy busy. Turns out, the heat range was the problem. we had #10 plugs and it needed #9. It was actually a mixup with Oreillys that helped us figure it out. They sent us the wrong plugs by mistake and i didn't verify. Voila! the car runs great!

I just put some colder plugs in my focus for the nitrous but with a 65 shot I can't tell the difference from a 55 shot with the hotter plugs. No misfire so I'm not sure what the deal is.
