Finished the 2016 season in pretty good shape. Had a few hiccups to sort out with the new block but all worked out in the end. A couple of convertor changes gave the consistency that was lacking and we went to the semi's at the Kearney, Ne. Div 5 National Open in October.

Thought I'd add an end-of-season update as to where we're at with the car.

A mid season converter change helped. We picked away at some other small things and also found some improvement. As it sits now, the car is a solid .80-.85 under in decent conditions (no altitude correction) in this part of the country. A good barometer here is 28.8 (uncorrected) so I'm pretty pleased, all in all.

Where I go from here with it, I'm not sure..but it's been fun!

Excellent work! Looks great! Theres quite a performance advantage going from that 28.8 to a 29.5 baro. Its nice when it all comes together.

Time to put a stick in it. LOL. A third pedal conversion would give you a whole new thrill.

Bruce, I seriously considered that a year ago. The 327-275's really come alive with a stick.

We're gettin' after it for next season, already. -Al
