So me n Ethyl decided to do our annual Christmas regalia. It was a slim pickin year what with one of the transporters getting caught shooting at the Home of Bill Clinton sign at Hope Arkansas. They busted him and took a whole load of white whiskey. I only had about 5 gallons left unsold from the other one that got through. I guess I can't get mad at Jim Bob though, who the hell knew they'd have video cameras on the sign?

So anyhow I went to my personal stash and somehow about 4 of the 5 gallons had mysteriously disappeared. I just can't figure out where it all went. Like figuring out where time went when you are having fun I guess?

So, anyhow, I had to make do with what I got. Everybody gets a pint stead of a quart this year. I went out and bought some sterile pint jars, not wanting to contaminate the lead particles in the whiskey, and began the process of cutting it down.

With four quarts on hand I figured I could reasonably cut it to 12 pints. Don't do the math unless you are drinkin. Well I lined the jars up and began to measure out the whiskey, of course I took an occasional sip to ensure that it was actually whiskey. Then I cut and capped the pints

Sheesh, one sip out of each pint didn't seem like it was going to be tough. of course for quilitte kontrol I has to sip a secund zip to mash cure it was okeee. atter toe zips I hadda brak inta my stash cause the gits wuz gettin kina emptee.

Completely rebuilt the blower over the past few weeks. The rear bearings for the rotors went out. Whipple has rebuilt everything on the blower except the case and the manifld. New Intercooler, rotors, etc.

Okie the blower is back on. It has been completely rebuilt by Whipple. We added the CBM Motorsports Intake. Had to custom fab the throttle cable mount, still need some work there. I screwed up the an connector to the fuel regulator so we didn't get to start it up. Hopefully will start it this week.

I am looking for a better window switch option than the OEM. I think I have found a couple of rocker switches that will work. I am going to move the fire pulls back to the rollbar then add a on off on switch with two LED's one for transbrake and one for lineloc. Plumcrazy turned me on to the setup. With the switch, the LED will indicate which one is active for the shifter button.

The black material is ABS. Once I get the panels and switches right I will replace them with actual carbon fiber like I have with the current switch. Would love to hear suggestions.

Taken about a week to figure out the throttle stuff. I turned the TB 90 degrees and made a bracket to run it in from the side. Took some monkeying around to get it where it would give me 100% but I think I am there.

Went from this

Had to *** the return spring, still working on that one. So afterwards took her out for a spin. Not inspected so tried to keep it reasonable.
