Martin was going to meet me at the Track in Rockingham the day the Jeep blew up. His laptop took a dump that morning and he called and said he wasn't going to make it. I didn't know he still had his rocket-ship TBSS. Great guy. Should be fun!!

As for tuning there is only really one qualified tuner and he comes from Jersey....

TBSS guys have invited us a few times to run with them, and only a hand full of us show up to those events. Both times that I've gone, once at ATCO and once at Island many TBSS show up and just a few Jeeps!
Hopefully this time a whole lot more show up, especially us with the jeeps.

This is pretty much how it looked at Island...

I believe Martin threw down around the 1220'ish rwhp range Brian with his latest setup. I think he just got it finished up early Nov. He wants to try and get it to a track for some shake down runs before the STS race.

Like I said guys..... this COULD happen, it's not a definite yet. I'll definitely be there. I just hope he can make it. I'm shooting for the 8's regardless. I'm gonna keep turning that damn knob to the right and swapping jets until I pick up an 8 second slip or something breaks dammit!! LOL. Hope he shows though. I think I was the only SUV there last year. Kinda sucked.

Hope this happens & you both get an 8, HB 8.85 to Martin's 8.9. Would be a killer race to see. Best of luck to you HB on the 8 regardless if the race takes place or not. You always put your customers first & it would be so awesome if you could that 8.
