Maybe you can start a Go Fund Me account to buy more tires for Maddie if John will be driving her again🤣

That's an excellent idea, provided the rear end can handle the increased traction. I'd like to see just what that BB can do! With a trailer, you can just push it in and take it home if it breaks. I'm betting JOINMANDER would do it!

C'mon now! Its the fun runs. Lets not tempt fate by hammering the daylights out of the cars, and break stuff. Broken cars are no fun! Believe me, its more fun making lots of runs then it is to make one, break the car and sit on the sidelines. Besides, you want to hang around Saturday night for some Be-Cool after party runs under the lights and fireworks!

True! I was seeing if I could get a rise out of Rick! Still, if you have the power, use it within reason. I, for one, will do at least one hammer down pass! Just can't help myself!

WELL!!! I think the Ford 9" could handle the drag tires, now the rear driveline and U joints mite be a different story, I think it would sound like the Rice Kripies comercial...

SNAP, CRACKEL, POP...

I pulled and inspected: driveshaft/u-joints, 9-inch 31spline axles and trac-loc differential in preparation for fun runs. I will have the trailer and winch on hand. I will make an easy run or two, however, I hammer this car on the street and it will hook harder with street tires on public roads than it ever will on a prepared strip, rev limiter and lack of traction are my drivetrain safe guards. Worn out shifter that keeps me from speed shifting 3rd holds me back too. LOL I would really like to get a few clean passes in this year.

Me thinks somebody is trying to do a sucker bet. He'll have us all scared off after he does the demo burnout at the host hotel.

Obviously NOT a no go showboat! GREAT! These ambassadors are setting a great example. Do you know if he doing the Be Cool After Party? It'd be great to see that beauteous car make a pass under the lights!
