Tony just called me and wanted me to update everyone on his 21....
Yesterday on his first pass 2 Dexter he ran 8.80 @ 129!!! This was on the pump gas tune up and the nitrous side is way fat on the fuel and bottle pressure was down, he also had buck cherry playing on his speakers while he was on the rope!! On his second pass the boat died at the top end and he ran 9.01 @ 124 and change, when he tried to fire it again it turned a little slower than normal so he checked the engine compartment and it was full of oil.... What had happened was where the canton oil filter adapter bolts to the block broke causing it to fall off and the engine pumping out all the oil. It was the only stock piece left on his new engine, a damn $5 part.
He is pretty sure it will just need a polish on the crank and a set of new bearings, it will be up and running by next weekend and he is planing on attending the next race to really get this 21 dialed in!! There was a few rumors going around that he burned up his engine so we just wanted to clear that up for everyone that its not.
Huge congrats Tony, that boat is a heavy best with everything a 21 could have in or on it!! Look for that 8.80 to improve at the next race everyone.
p.s. This is a 1/4 mile track not 1000 feet.
