Not a racer I know of Dave but very keen I believe he intends to remove the injection and methanol system and run gas through a four barrel

Without wanting to highjack this thread I believe that the car only ran once with the injection/methanol and that was the last time it ran. It was at the Pod and running very rich on methanol ran equal to its PB when on carb and gas.

Was the engine run after his last outing with it? Must of been mid to late 90's as my Dad spoke to John about the Flying Toilet setup as we had switched over not long before.

I seem to remember them being in Pro ET pitted a few cars down from us behind the toilets when it used to be gravel...

Just read this after posting my comment. It will teach me to skim read...

Yeah, I have a feeling it was the Cannonball in 1995 after more thought. We were pitted a few cars down and I think my Dad spoke to John about the Flying Toilet setup as we had just got ours setup ok after some messing about with the pill sizes provided.

Was this not the event John did the 360 in the lights and took a bow?

Thanks for the picture, it's good to see the car again and I hope it goes to a good home.
Any update on the sale?

Back to the thread one of Norm's best. Am trying desperately to get it back on the track for Dragstalgia.
Watch this space.
Sound interesting Tim, what's the chances then?

Am in constant contact with Roy Webb, and he is keen for it to happen. Car is together, not much work to get in running trim. Bullying is the order of the day!
