Well we had a great time at the Chicago 1/2 mile shootout held this weekend in Monee, Illinois.
We had 2 Crossfires racing this weekend driven by Bill Holliday (oledoc2u) and Bryan Tracy (ImportLabSRT)
Also racing was Eurocharged Jake in the white modded Mercedes.

Also several other friends joined me and attended as spectators.
Thanks to all who came out for this event this weekend.
I had a great time and below is a link to the photos I took over this weekend:

Doc was there too ..................Progress on the Blue SRT6 Coupe ;)

Well, here's an update on this long and drawn out build with a change here and there.
 It made it's debut at the Chicago Half Mile Shootout...
 Data logging, says the tune is really close.
I was not running the meth kit yet and may not.
She's running pretty good without it.
So the run down as it stand right now is: 62mm pulley, 55pump, Rob's mani's, Rob's pully kit, EC tune, DashDaq/Zeitronix, Rob's catch can, a few Doc tweeks,
and of course the rear end modded to hold all this power.
 Hitting the quarter/mile or eighth mile soon....broke the 140 barrier in the half mile...car was rock solid...took almost 2 yrs to get to where I wanted to be...and well worth it...
