Thats a great shot!:thumbsup: I was watching the video today. I had no idea my car was that violent on the take off. I've got to cure the wheel hop syndrome. Sorry I didn't get to me you down there. Maybe I'll see you in the spring.

It was really great to see everyone again. It sucks being at one of these events without your car.

Big thanks to John for letting me satisfy the need with a few passes in the L. Let me know when your ready to do some heads and a cam on that beast. I’ll be at your door with tools in hand. :D

Here’s to Dave making it into the twelve’s, not once, but twice. :thumbsup:

Kevin,

I didn't put the GPB thingy on there because no one would get it. I also let John P drive Fireball down the track. He enjoyed it and I enjoyed watching him run. ;) It was a fun time for all. March 1, 2003 is our next meet. Two weeks before our scheduled CMP event so mark your calendars for a full month in March. ;)

tony, already posted a link. did a search here, back when joe had posted a while back for last year's event. thanks.

you want that shot cropped like that, or the full shot? i like the cropped shot, it pretty much took out a lot of dead space....
whichever one you want, i'll zip it to ya...

sn8kbit,

The wheels up pic of the Lethal Z is awesome. Please send me the full file. djf@djf.com. Sorry I didn't get to visit more. We were stumped by a problem when we went over 100 HP on the nitrous. We couldn't find the 150 HP pills and went to 175 HP. After that we couldn't break out of the 11's. Boss man is hopping like a ZO6 with traction control turned on, but is running strong. Sorting out the chassis is one of the toughest parts. You Cobra guys are getting quicker. I don't remember as many Cobra's in the 12's as I saw this time. We hope to hit a high high 9 in the Spring with a 150 shot, our problem solved and a little luck. We had a great time as usual.

Steve, yes I made it into the 12's. Best time was 12.83, had 2 other sub-13 runs. Still not happy with the launches, though. Gotta get more practice, buy more stuff.

Real glad you came down to be with us. Maybe next time we can see your Cobra in action.

:D

Dave (camaro)....they're on the way. he had 3 shots, i sent ya all three.

dave, as always good to see ya again, and chelle says hey. next round of pics i've got a couple of you, one looked like you were a bit sideways on launch. Dunno about dragging the car, i don't want to get into that fever again, turned my old 91 into a severe money pit....LOL

BOSSMAN
11-11-2002, 08:03 PM
Steve, how about sending me the pics of my car. You took some awesome shots.:thumbsup:

Dave, It was hopping pretty bad wasn't it. I'm going to work on that this winter. Anyone have any sugguestions????

Tony

Great pics!

I'm the guy who owns that 67 Camaro. I would love it if I could get any/all photos emailed directly to me (gwarren@saic1.com) that have my car or my friend Ken's Chevelle. I will forward the pics to Ken myself.

Again, great pics. Thanks to Tony and the club for putting on a great event.

Bossman, I enjoyed talking to you again this year. It seems that every time we come to this event one or both of us runs into some mechanical trouble. This was my first trouble free SVT event.

Maybe next Spring we can finally have that 60's heads up race?

Thanks guys!
