525 miles later the 440 block is honed. This is the block that needs the new pistons and rings, but donít have either one. As Jeff said itís going to be plenty loose. I hope it gets me in at Indy. We should get a feel for performance at the BG Pts race.

Hey Larry - curious as to what brand you went from and to - care to elaborate?
Thanks, Phil

A/SA class is over and Steve won again, congratulations to Steve Wann. The good news for me is that our car is a little closer in performance than in years past. Going to Jeff Taylorís shop to get some stuff worked on was for me a good decision. Thanks Taylor and Jeff

After Indy we will drain the brake in oil out and put some racing oil in.

Then back to Dumbo

Dumbo will be back after everything is checked, documented, and improved. We are still trying to catch the yellow car and itís BAD fast. I need a lot of help in gaining confidence in my ability to tune the car for different track and weather conditions.

Well tomorrow is when the little elephant is front and center in the shop.
The pink car has its last race in BG this weekend.

All year we have been buying parts for Dumbo, cross your fingers.

We were at St Louis. Gages are great! John and the rest of the Classic team do great work!
