    Thumbs up Took the Pontiac G8 to the track - March 2020

    Recently changed the mods since 2016.
    Upgraded from the Little Lunati cam to the Dominator cam.
    Installed a Circle D converter from the stock converter.
    Converted to E85.

    Track conditions very different from last outing in 2016 (around 50 degrees then and last night it was in the 70 degrees).
    My E85 content was only showing around 63% (dang winter blend).
    Overall not a bad start. Some more testing and possibly some better E85 mix along with changes to lockup/shift points and maybe it can hit some 7.teens in the 1/8th.

    Hopefully you stock up on E85, i heard several plants are shutting down due to the prices tanking.

    Around here we have Sheetz Gas stations that stock E85 at the pump.
    So hopefully that does not change!
