I know that feeling...its not the same, but close to the feeling you get when your kids start going out and staying out, socializing, moving in with other young people. You worry until they come home...it's almost a relief when they leave home for college or get married. At least you know not to expect them, nor wait for that dreaded phone call.

The good thing about it being a car, is even if you get "The phone call", at worst, it'll only be about costing you a little more money!

The shop told me to take it easy the first 50 miles or so. I did goose it and the acceleration is great, nice crisp shifts and smooth. BUT, I still don't think it will light the tires up. Maybe needs to be tuned better. Or, I just have great tractable HP!

Been 50 miles, doesn't light em up, but sure as heck launches from a standstill!!!! I am going to work on the timing and carb setup, seems like it should have a bit more.
No major things on the agenda, time to drive this baby!

Remind us....What is the stall on the convertor? What is your rear gear? If it is tight, it will not be in the powerband enough to overpower the tires. If it isn't bogging, then you are OK.
