Default Re: Dumbo The Flying Elephant

Minimum weight for FS/D with driver is 3395#. After the run the car scaled 3415# and that is within 5# of what it weighs on my scales.

HB2 as always thanks for helping me think in the correct direction!

I almost have the car race ready. By race ready for me is how easy and fast can we service the car and change components to make the next round. This winter’s project is, as always weight reduction. Goal this year 15 to 20 pounds for the car and 20 pounds for the driver.

Thanks Mark

After my hand is fixed and healed, adding some data loggers, dyno time, testing, win the championship. Pretty much the same as last year and every year, with the exception of the surgery and the extra logging.

I have planed to do this while my hand is on the mend from surgery. In a couple of months my left hand should be a whole lot better. But while I'm healing I will try to thank everyone that has contributed to the success of Dumbo.

Jeff Teuton, Dale Aldo, Gary Jennings, Goodyear, Kevin Helms, John Morris, Eric Cunningham, Dale Matthews, Zack Ross, Wallace Stanford, Billy Godbold, David Page, Cooter Hidalgo, Randy Eakins, Matt Maxwell, Shawn at Southland performance, Sid Bonnecarrere, Jeff Taylor, Geoff Turk, Tony at BES, Harrold Bettis, Jimmy Ronzello, Dennis Breeden, Keith Lynch, Mike Fuller, Joel from Joel’s on Joy, Mike Wagnor, Mike from MPR, Kile Carothers, Calven Elston, Jerry Wittig, Jeff McAdoo, Rock Hass, Jerry Bennet, Brad Van Lant, Wiring Wizard BobToy, Doug Duell, Crag Madox, Charle at ATI, Brad Rounds at T&E, Darren at Advance Motion, John Richardson, Frank at Tommy’s, Jimmy Bridges, George Widuch, John at Classic Instruments, Jason at Mark Williams, the Smith family at Pro Trans, Wesley at NHRA, Keith at Total Seal. John Donato.

To all the great folks that have helped and yet to be named, please forgive me I’m doing this from memory. At my age I’m lucky to remember how to get to town and back.

As anyone can see I have some really special people to listen to and take their advice.

An a extra special thanks to all the folks at IHM Used Parts for your continued support.

Of course with me every step of the way is my family, son Chris, and my oh so tolerant wife of 50 plus years Patsy.

UK basketball has decided to make political statements which I think has no place in the college game. That will free up two to four more hours a week to work on the car.
My hand is coming along nicely, now it’s back to work.
