    My question is how do you reach the two step and line lock buttons while belted in?

    I haven't tried it myself yet Bob but Timmy can
    reach them with the seat moved up close the
    way he likes when driving a stick car. Otherwise
    the buttons will have to be relocated to be within
    reach.

    We actually let off of it, It needs a little more octane and the boost was still going up..
    2015 A6 Mustang GT that so far has gone 9.48@147 but still the fastest prochargerd S550 in the world aside from Tim Essick's!

    I have my switches for my boost controller mounted where the info center was and no way I can reach them, but I have my seat low and back, and I'm a bigger guy, I think you will find you want your line lock and two step more automated as you start to race that thing. I have everything between my clutch switch and a button on my shifter. I race some tracks I need to use the line lock on the line and launch off the two step. You wont have as much trouble as I have with the diaphragm clutch wanting to pull through at high rpm ....

    I love that Racecraft bracket much more than my UPR one. Same function, but the UPR one makes getting to the front seat bolts a royal PITA with my Kirky's.

    Thanks Chuck......that was the question. Glad that is legal as it opens up seat options tremendously.

    Tim made a few shake down runs at last month’s
    track rental. A few more things need to be addressed
    before the powerful Mach 5 is streetworthy.

    Change out the 3.73 gears (too short) add a hood
    & chute, but don’t think a turbo-axle is in the cards.
    A few more odds & ends then get a plate & start cruising.
