    Way to purty to trash in the mud, now you will need to be careful with it.

    It looks like it is missing something... Oh yeah, where is the Binder Planet decals? Can't wait to read about the new and improved Lil' Pink's debut!

    We have won a few races and lost a few races, no trophies yet in 2011.

    I just got home from a full weekend of racing. Saturday and Sunday I spent a lot of time making repairs and making changes. We won more than we lost and had a great time doing it.

    Maranda brought home the Top Grudge Match Trophy for the second year in a row and came home with a first place in the stock 6cyl class, driving a borrowed Jeep Cherokee.

    I am digging the guy in the last picture with the rebel flag. I guess the Dukes of Hazzard had a nationwide effect!:punk:

    After race season ended I decided we needed more HP, so I stripped down the motor.

    I got in touch with a local engine builder who specializes in Big Block Mopars and then I opened up my wallet.

    Last night I stopped by the engine builder's shop to check out what he had done with the heads. It is very important for us to remain with stock cast heads in order for us to stay within our maximum allowed points. Preliminary flow values across the freshly ported and polished heads are better than out of the box aluminum stealth heads. Of course nobody in their right mind would pay someone to spend that much time porting stock cast heads when it is cheaper to bolt on aluminum heads, but I'm not in my right mind.

    Engine assembly is coming along, a little slower than I wanted, but that's primarily because I needed to finish coughing up $$$.
