Bud's Open House, August 21

Who's going from our SoCal FTE bunch?

It sounds like it's VERY-well organized, and is going to be the SoCal diesel shindig of the year!

It figures to be quite a crowd there...getting there early is a good idea. There will probably be a good number of "flatbillers" there as the day goes on.

Okay, so I don't get out much anymore. I had to google flatbiller.

Oh yeah, looking forward to those guys.

Reliable sources say Gene is bringing Stoked Lightning tomorrow.

Anybody know if parking is going to be a problem in Bud's "neighborhood" on a Saturday?

There isn't an abundance of parking, that's for sure. Best to arrive early.

I'm thinking 9-ish myself.

For those who missed this event, you sure missed one!

A band, clowns, magicians, snow cones, sodas everywhere, burgers, hot dogs, desserts, lotsa' displays, new Ford truck test drives, a dyno, hats, T-shirts, and a real-nice "family-oriented" crowd.

Any photos yet posted?

You can say that again.

There was a cough...d-max that put down 560 - something on the dyno after you left. Gene put the little Red truck up on the rollers at the end of the day and did a little over 450...bent pushrods and all. Tried to blow 'er up, but it wouldn't pop.

I think we can expect to see good things from that truck on the NHRDA division 2 circuit next year though.

Good to see you fellas out there today!

Was that on his last pull when he blew the cap off of the degas bottle?

Don't know, but probably. I think it was his last run. Did you notice his CCV "reroute". That motor had a lot of blowby.

How many dyno runs did they end up selling? I think they were at 4 completed when I left.

It dumps right under the door, too. I'd imagine it's pretty noticeable at stop lights.

There were 13 or 14 total. I ended up putting mine on after all...hadn't done it since I took the other "stuff" off.

Gene's run was a freebie, and he only did the one pull.
