Bowling Green

I went, didn't take 03 and didn't get to see much racing as I was trying to sell some toys in the swap meet to pay for changes to my '03. Picked up 2.85 non-slip/belt/pully puller/100m pully from Lynn and Rick and a Predator from JLP (couldn't wait on a list)

I was there all weekend. I was with the Strictly Performance crew but did get to meet and talk to all the folks from Amazon Racing - great bunch of guys/gals. Someone had posted a list of the qualifing positions in an early thread (maybe in the "Bar").

I heard that an 03 Cobra blew up out there...melted a piston. Sounds flaky because there was no names, no specifics.

Truth or rumor...anyone know?

Sorry to hear that. It was a JL customer or JL himself? Lightning or Cobra?

Damn, melted a forged piston? Wow. That's a first for any Cobra I have heard, if it was a Cobra.

I know I talked with JL about 8-10 months ago and he said his car was going low 11's @ 123 or so with the Eaton and no headers, havent heard anything since until now, I would like some info as well if it was he that blew up his 03??

So JL broke his Lightning AND his Cobra?

Sorry to hear about the bad luck. Sometimes you can go to a race, throw the dice and crap out. It happens to the absolute best of racers / mechanics.

Any number of things could have happened that have no reflection on JLP - a bad tank of race fuel, a defective piston or rod that finally let go...chip went bad suddenly...

Id like to know the details of the 03 Cobra breakage if anyone feels like talking about it.
