Got some good runs in at Bonneville, but blew up the whole motor at El Mirage last weekend. Nothing like a good blowup after only 18 miles. But I guess Dale Earnhardt said it best when he said, "That is just hard racin'" My mag timing slipped while I was running 10 percent Nitro in Alcohol. It usually spins off the taper and just quits, this time it held on long enuf to rip my hard to come by piston to shreds. Also my right hand rod let loose and is rocking on the journal like a baby in a cradle. Oh well... Big thanks to Special K and Dangerous D for the crew work, you guys are great.
