Nothing as spectacular as the pics above, but in the last few years i've racked up

Two sets of broken axles
One set of rear drums warped from heat
Four camshafts (two broke in half, flattened the other two)
One case
One set of straight cuts
One set of pistons
Two sets of barrels
One ring and pinion
Hockey stick
Trashed 2nd gear pro ring
And a little bit of pride too.

But it's all part of it. Trying to find the motivation to go out and re-ring my motor in time for Vegas this year. Haven't touched the car in a couple months.

Sacrifice to the Gods of Nitrous



Not a very clear shot. You really got to hold those digital cameras steady. I had a brain fart while testing at Redline changing nawss jet . Accidently put too big of a nawss jet in #4. Went lean and torched the head . Easy fix though. Already have the head welded and being machined for repair. I guess I need a new presciption on my tri focal glasses to better see the jet sizes. LOL

This is a pic from July of 2006. I did get the head repaired. I had accidently put my fuel pressure testing jet into #4 nozzle. So, I went from 18n 20f to 40n 22f. Instant blow torch is was. Incredible fire works show through 2nd gear I'm told. Then the motor went flat. Humm, I wonder why.

I specialize in transmissions:



















Never good when the tranny drain plug comes out like this. :eek:







I wonder if that material is my cam?



Yep. :(
