    Haha it’s a war zone in Cali. We finally got our stuff. After I had to buy another Torque converter. And made us super late. Been scrambling and just finished the parade at the Mint. Ready for a beer. Mike

    I would be shocked if BITD changed the rules to allow rebuilds or other engine suppliers. That would just make more work for them. Mike

    Got our truck dialed at Midnight. Haha Jason from SDG stayed late into the night to make sure we had it right. It’s as fast as it’s ever been and ready to rock. Nathan has worked crazy hours and little sleep for weeks to get us ready to go. So much happier than I was earlier today, haha...

    So what you are saying is I should apologize publicly for offending you but Herbst does not need to apologize to the guys they took out of the race? I never said they need to apologize on social media. They need to call the guys and apologize. I said it’s clear that they have not as the guys...

    Who makes the best TT today?

    OK fish. I will stop offending you with my “crying”. If it gets too hard for you to take just put me on ignore. Go find 43Mod. I think he needs some help. His jaw is getting tired. Mike

    43mod Come on. You are saying apology is not needed but no doubt it will be made at some point? I get you can’t always find people and especially at the B1K. Was making a broad statement about how easy it is to apologize. I need to change my name to Herbst. Then I can get away with anything...

    Haha seriously. I am sitting here waiting for our truck to show up and freaking out. UPS lost our converter and 3 member so we are scrambling like usual. Couple hours behind. We only had to send two things off and both got lost. Going to Barstow to tune with SDG today. Truck has just left...

    I am not going to argue. Fish can think what he wants and I can think what I want. For me to not want a bunch of TT guys to buy new 6100’s and come race is my choice. We have a 6100 and not a fleet of brand new 1600. Mike

    Acme Totally agree. I was not expecting any Herbst to come apologize on RDC. They could however reach out on any social media platforms to apologize and it seems they have not. It’s pretty easy to get a hold of people these days. I have had interaction with Troy Herbst on IG. LOL Would have...

    Pretty sure the LT1 puts down more TQ than the LS3 The LT1 runs 75psi and no return. So it’s a pretty simple set up. Haha I say it’s simple but we made some mistakes on our set up. The high pressure fuel pump is built into the engine. Mike

    The LT1 makes more torque than the LS3. Less HP but more TQ. I think we are putting down 10-15hp less HP than LS3 trucks but more TQ. The 535hp LT1 would have been way more power than the LS3 525hp Edit- I don’t know for certain what LS3’s are putting down. That’s a guess based on what I hear...

    Same reason some 2WD TT guys might want less 4WD TT’s at a race. Sometimes the underdog wants less big dogs to race against. I don’t expect everyone to understand or share my perspective. But as a 6100 underdog it sucks to have a bunch of top unbeatable trucks show up. I get that’s not the...

    RDC Kangaroo Court

    I don’t think anyone is saying what they did was that bad. The bad part is they have not apologized in any way. Even if someone steps on your heal in a line and gives you a flat tire you expect them to apologize. This was way worse than that and not only did real Damage but ruined one guys...

    LOL 😂 thats funny. I am sure by tech day they will have taken all my money. But I might be able to come up with $4. Mike

    Haha We didn’t make the change to LT1 because the LS3 were going away. It helped make the decision easier but we when with the LT1 because we thought it was the 535hp version which is way under rated and would have been beast. But after we bought it and made all the changes we found out it was...

    I think many can go much longer. But yes there is always a small amount if silt that gets by no matter how good your filter is. So that’s one factor. The valve train gets hammered pretty hard at max rpm and constant on and off. I think for the most part the bottom ends are fine as most of...

    allowing rebuilds only prolongs the LS3 problem. I am sure guys like Danzio can get your dialed with a LT1. They will have it figured out way faster than I did and may already have it figured out. They are the best and the biggest in racing. Or maybe I need to start a new business. Haha Mike

    A TT body from Fiberwerx is like $4000 plus wrap which is $3800-4200. Not sure how much paint is. So yes body panels can add up fast. But we plan on one new body at the beginning of the year and one more complete body throughout the season. And we budget $1000 for fiberglass repair for a...

    I added cost estimates. If I was at my computer I could get you a coat per mile. But I try not to look at it that way. Haha Mike
