well.. on the latest road trip with the pumpkin.. i notched some 3 straight hours of 80 MPH.. whoo hooo.. i even hit 85 serveral times... man it drives nice.. one finger.. heck no hands a few times.. i couldnt believe it..
course the 401 wasnt too happy.. [img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/frown.gif[/img].. but she is getting pulled next week for the rebuild.. so that's why i pushed her so hard.. [img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/laugh.gif[/img]..

Pulling the 401 next week? Did you pospone your vacation? Did I miss something Pat?

Re: new land speed record!!

i believe my jeeps top speed is about 60 and thats with the motor turning @ 2800 rpm's (that more than i like to see going gown the highway) wait, that's not true, i was towing it at around 70 mph 2 weekends ago [img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/smile.gif[/img]

Re: new land speed record!!

pats going on a little "work related trip" for the next 6 months, so he's going to yave the engine pulled and rebuilt while he's gone. gregg, there are a couple of us going to the roundup.. i'll be there if im home and organized. (most likely)
my jeep does 80 mph, but its turning 3000 rpms at the time.

everything good in life is round, breasts, halos, and headlights

Re: new land speed record!!

I'll be going to the Round-up, stock or lifted, either way, I'll be there.

Pat, trailer's, anyday you want to drive down here and get them, don't forget the Dana 300 either.

Chris, your trailer is wired and I didn't take the tires like I said I would, eventually I'll get some of the NDT's for myself[img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/smile.gif[/img]
