Actually this was the first 1/4 mile pass for both Joe and I with the new combos so make that two 8 second passes right of the trailer. Then I found the blower belt was rubbing the water pump under sustained load so I didn't want to risk wrapping the belt up on an electrical harness or something if it broke so that was that for the night. Already put the electric water pump back on since it has tons of clearance. We originally removed the electric water pump and switched it back to mechanical because the bolts that held on the snout pulley backed out from the vibration, turns out Meziere only used teflon tape on the bolts instead of using loctite so we re-did that and will give it another go. If this soft first pass is where it begins I can't wait to see where it will end up.
