Re: B500 spec car

Week Twenty-Six: Last race for this car.  Good turn out.

Left Lane                         Right Lane
60ft.         E.T.     MPH      60ft.       E.T.     MPH  Dial in:
188         1.233    39.64    185        1.312   35.56  Test runs.

1st round:
187        1.226    39.29                                        1.227 W Less of a break out.

2nd round:
190       1.239     38.96                                         1.227  Lost.

This is the last run for this car, I think that the test for these cars with this one running six months straight has proven that a simple made chassis and running a Falcon motor is well worth the money.
I invested a little over $80.00 for the whole car and it's returned a small amount of cash back. I ran it for the last time.

Thanks for looking each week at the results, the Vette still has some time to go....
