Welcome!! We need to see how you smoke the tires as well.Thank You for the Welcome @mixed up ! Unfortunately, we went out in the first round, when the line lock pressure didn't hold the car in the beams when the car was staged, and throttle was matted, resulting in turning on the red light or foul start! That's racing, as they say. We need about 250-300# of brake pressure on the front brakes to stage the car and hold it...only had a little under 200#. We'll be in Gainesville at the GatorNationals in March to start the 2024 NHRA season in the new Factory Experimental or FX Class that debuted in 2023 at the US Nationals at Indy this year. We were one of four cars in the class to debut at Indy and make the exhibition runs this year. Next year we will be running for the first Championship. Thanks again for the Welcome!!!
Thank You for the Welcome @AmericanMike! I appreciate it... Here's our first burnout for our first ever pass on our new FX Class COPO at the US Nationals at Indy on September 1st, 2023 in the debut of this brand new class for the NHRA.... #SmokingTheTiresWelcome!! We need to see how you smoke the tires as well.
Welcome and good luck racing! Nice looking car!My new Pit Boss purchase is the new Pit Boss Pro Series 1600 Elite PSE purchased at Lowe's October 24th, 2023. It came in, I picked it up, unloaded it at home and had to immediately leave for an NHRA National Event drag race in Vegas, as I'm a participant in the new Factory X class. I couldn't wait to get back home, 7 days later, to put the grill together, do the burn in and do my first smoke on it, a couple of racks of baby back ribs! a "Coca-Cola" rack and a "Sweet, slightly spicy" rack! Yum YUM!!! I have had a couple of issues but I called Pit Boss Support and have resolutions in the works, as the lid and lid seal had damage inside from their assembly process apparently and then there was an issue with a critical firmware update to the controller when I first fired it up, but we got that resolved, we are hopeful anyway. Time will tell. The first cook went well with the typical temp variant. Great results though.... tender, juicy, smokey baby back ribs! I look forward to learning this pellet smoker, as I have always smoked using an offset smoker. But my first smoke went well... with great results from what I am hoping is a great smoker. I did a lot of due diligence before my purchase for both the smoker and the company's support/warranty. And this company is headquartered right here just a few miles from me. I am looking forward to the resources of this Forum, as well.
Loving it.........and a Camaro owner. I have a F1FTY SS Vert sitting in my garage.
