    Here's another one.

    What causes pistons valves and heads to deform or melt?

    Again its pretty simple.

    Master Hirata haven't you run in the teens?

    Dave, Dave, Dave,

    You are not supposed to tell them it is that easy! Every A-fuel car in the country runs 20's, right? But you forgot the biggest secret........it really is because the air in our plenum doesn't "stack up"! Its going "supersonic." :rolleyes:

    Question for Duane Shields

    Here's a simple one to start with.....

    How did you run mid-twenties seven years ago with a combination that "won't work" and with a car that was almost 50lbs. overweight?

    what about the B/AD's

    at the fla race in west palm we were told by NHRA guy's that they wanted to slow BOTH cars down so what has been said about slowing the blown car's????? The number they were tossing around was 265 mph or less.
