Larry told me about this at the divisional at Norwalk earlier this year when I asked why they weren't running Mick's car at the PDRA events. He also made a yikes like look when he said it, I think, implying they may be in for some burnt pistpns or head gaskets during the learning curve. As we discussed, if the turbo P/M guys can flow enough fuel through their EFI systems, there's no reason you couldn't flow the same amount for a blower. I wish them luck. Wouldn't it be cool if once they got it all sorted out, NHRA would allow EFI in the T/A classes?

The Snyders sure have Shana's T/D running well. I've seen she's quaified at one Div. event with a 6.04.

It was at Norwalk, but it is the Shockwave triple jet engine truck. Made a real mess - definately another reason not to stand anywhere behind those things.

They were awesome enough to let us run this event with a few front engine dragsters, little red wagon went over the guard rail and ended everyones night. You seriously feel like you are ready to go back to watch the Sunday festivities when you realize its all packed in one night.

X2 it would be really cool to see it in T/A as well! This is further proof that innovation is alive and well in the drag racing. You definitely take the chance of being the guinea pig but it can have a big pay off later. Exciting to see someone take the initiative too. Best of luck to the Snyders!
