UMTR Racer - Greg Changet

2021 SEASON

Good Luck, Greg!

Sunday, April 22

I’ve been out testing the past couple Friday’s and the car is running fantastic.

I do need to make a small clutch adjustment before the first race on May 7th, but other than that I am ready to go.

I’m excited for the season and we are going to try like hell to get into the winner’s circle a couple times this year!

That's a wrap!

Now that the repairs are done I decided to change the color of the car to dark gray. The wrap with the new color is done. I'm really pleased with the results and ready to race!

The race care is almost done and ready for the season. There are a few small things to finish but it’s close!

Saturday, January 29

The new front end has been delivered!

I can finally complete the repairs from the accident earlier this year. While I'm at it, I'm making the profile a little lower to make it easier to see.

Plus, I'm cleaning up the back seat delete to make the interior look nicer.

It's good to be back in the garage. It reminds me Spring is coming regardless of the ice and snow outside.

Now that the season is over the winter repairs and inspection process has begun. Every winter I pull the transmission and engine out and tear them down to inspect them. I check the gears and sliders in the transmission and tear down the engine to check the bearing for wear.

It was a great finish to the season at Dragway 42 with our best time of the year—8.87 at 149.6 mph!

Race day at Dragway 42 in West Salem.

We have a winner! The first 8 second pass of the season.

Cooler weather is here!

It's time to switch from C12 to Q16 fuel for increased horsepower.  This change requires replacing the size 100 jets to 106 to accomodate for the differences in the fuel and the cooler temperatures. 

Starting fuel jet switch Greg Changet
Fuel jet switch complete. Ready for Q16 fuel.

We decided to hit the local track (Magnolia) for a nice Sunday. The car probably ran the best it has all year, but the driver sucked - LOL!

I red lit the first round and went home disappointed again. Sooner or later I will get my head straight and go some rounds

Looking forward to the  next race in a couple of weeks.

Looked good at the Sept 4 - UMTR Fall Nationals at Quaker City Motorsports Park. We worked really hard on finding the happy place for the clutch. The data logger showed we needed less clutch and more RPMs. We're really close to dead on now. The goal is to make the car as quick as possible, yet consistent. 

We red lighted in the 2nd round to end our day, but we made great progress - 9.14 @ 145MPH.  We're happy with our tweaks.

It was a great weekend at Tad and Jims Dragway.

Saturday, July 31

Despite a little mishap we ran our best 60ft time ever in this car.

Sunday, July 18

Unloading for the race at Magnolia.

Sunday was not a good day. During the burnout for the first time trial something happened in the transmission where I lost reverse. In order not to risk major damage to the transmission I ended my day early.

This is the life racing a stick car. You get good at removing transmissions, fixing, and installing.

Looks like the rain is going to hold off. Found and fixed the cause of the bad vibration.

Race ready!
