2014 plans for 431!! Each year we try something new

GTX4202 with Tial Housing and a new header - Also building a new short block for 2014 ! Lets see if we cant get this car deep into the 8s next year

Later in the year after we are done playing with the gtx turbo we will be trying this little guy in 431!!

2014 - 9 second runs - 4 years in a row running 9s - time to run 8s
