Boss Bird Update

Last week was busy. Wednesday evening had us at Sinclair Community College; doing a presentation to the Engine Mechanical class and the High Performance Fuel System class.
We talked about the ins and outs of running a nitro funny car and the components that go into our unique Pontiac engine.
We also displayed data plots on the projection screen and walked the students thru evaluating the information.

Thursday was our trip to Kil Kare Dragway for their Night of Fire race. We were lined up next to Barrie Young’s “Down Under Thunder” funny car. Video link attached below.
A few broken valvetrain parts (and not much time between rounds) ended the evening for us; but not before signing autographs for a mob of families and kids.
