The first time I went down the strip I had way too much air in my tires. It was like driving on ice, I finally just tromped it and sent the tires up in smoke. On the second run I let most of the air out of my tires and got it to hook. These two videos are before I hurt my engine.

Looks like I will be bringing my Mustang. I will try to bring the GTS but I have to work too. 14 1/2 hour days don't leave much time. I don't exactly know what is wrong yet but it is knocking bad.

I bent all of the pushrods. I reshimmed the rockers and put hardened pushrods in and today will be the test here at Thunder Valley. We are gonna have 3 Gran Torinos on the strip.
