New Car Working Well 3 Races
Brainerd, Denver, then back
to Brainerd MN and everything has been working great. Ghost2, the new Top
Alcohol Funny Car campaigned by Kris and Kevin Hool is running
well, not hurting any parts, and goes a little faster every run.
With the best ET and speed so far of 5.86 sec @ 248 MPH. We are
looking for much more out of this car but did not feel like
turning up the wick too fast. It would be a shame to destroy a
bunch of new parts right out of the gate so I have to admit I've
been very conservative so far with the tune-up, commented
Kevin also said that the car goes
a little faster almost every pass and he is getting a handle on
what the car wants, especially in the first 300ft of the track.
Kris has been driving great and has been very sharp at the
starting line, with a better reaction time than all 3 of his
opponents so far. The BAE8 engine and the new Crower clutch is
much different than the 15 year old BAE2 combination that the
Hool's have run since they entered the TAFC ranks back in the
early 1990's. New "Gripper" graphics should be on
the car, and new "Gripper" products should be available
by the race in Dallas. Stay Tuned!
Look for more Information soon on
the progress that the Hool's are making with the new
