Great video. Sounds like you guys had fun. I bet you guys are still picking the cotton fabric out from 6:00. As for 10:25 I had a child hood friend that road in the car once for sentimental reasons and he did this often, very often. I then asked him to try pointing the direction and this worked so good that I prefer sign language over verbal during the race now.
Interesting - 3 different 1500 cars had Idler pulley issues that I am aware of. One of them only made it to the 1/2 mile mark before having to change it....Well, here is our very short race. On day one ran the pre-run race and the car was working great. During our race heat, we made it to race mile 2 before the idler pulley mount bent and cracked causing us to throw belts. We got that fixed up and ran the pre-run race Sunday morning with car a that worked perfectly. During our heat on Sunday, we only made it to race mile 5 before the car started over heating and shut of in the middle of the course thus ending our weekend. Here is our entire 2 mile race on Saturday.
