We had a great day driving the car for the first time. GPS didn't work so no MPH claims to be made or exaggerated. Motor ran well but I'm still trying to learn how to drive the thing, it's been awhile since I drove a class 11. Suspension seemed to bottom out a lot but we will have to work on that. I don't think it was the shocks, I think it was my driving skills and timing. Overall lots of fun. I'm registered for MDR King 250 on April 24th. See you guys then. Cheers!

Michael, if you need a revalve etc. dont be shy about bringing the shocks up to Bilstein. We have done plenty of more valving development since we built your set.

How can I help your race program?

We will be talking for sure! Like I said, the shocks are great, I think it was my driving and car setup. Gotta get the bugs worked out! I gave Juan the lowdown. Call me sometime!

Car had a decent shakedown run with me in it... Didn't quite get it up to race-pace. Really couldn't get a good feel for it since we didn't kick the ass end up 6 feet in the air and lawn dart it.

Race debut is only 10 days away! Car is ready minus a CV joint I need to re-prep because we lost a boot during our shakedown run. Changed all the fluids and got all the minor stuff taken care of. I was hoping to race against more people on the 24th and hope that the two preregistered show up. Should be a small race so that will be fun. In car camera is awesome and I will edit/post a video after it's done.

Does anyone have a stock fuel tank sender that works that they would be willing to donate to the Brenner Racing effort? We run a stock tank and want to have a fuel gauge working, the one in there now is gutted.

Mike, I have a whole gas tank including sender from my 68 project you are welcome to. You could work something out with Jeremy to deliver. You have to take it all though :)

My biggest surprise is that the motor is THIRSTY. But damn, it runs nice! I'm curious to see how many races I will get out of this transmission. My next one is gonna be better too! Damn! We shall see. Thankfully my dad and I have a handle on what needs to be adjusted and it is stuff that's actually managable.

J--- maybe I can pickup from your place? I will be dropping my shocks off at Bilstein sometime this week.

Whatever works for you. If it is earlier in the day my wife is usually home and could give it to you. The sender was replaced by the previous owner of the car and is practically brand new.

Freaking car is apart and now going back together again for testing in Plaster city of new shocks/transmission/engine combo. New car.

New engine is looking pretty nice, bugpatch in Santee is good quality if you need it!

Nice Michael !
That should feel nice with a new power plant and trans,

We are taking D.A.T. Bug out for the first offroad test this weekend in the Borrego Desert to see how the suspension is set on the car.
