We are getting reg forms in now so let's go have some fun. Besides, if we have a small turnout then maybe your Dad can win the fastest naturally aspirated Cobra award. ($100.00) ;)

He's afraid he'll tear something up if he drives it too hard. I told him if he tears it up we have a perfectly good 2001 motor and trans in the garage.;)

I got several registration forms today and it looks like we will have some new GM counterparts coming.

Paul,

Can you invite everyone you know to attend? Or just go to a few BB's for me and let them know about it. Oh, it's about time you got back in the swing. I'm interested in seeing what that 454 rwhp will do too. Who knows, maybe the coward from Alabama will bring his black 99 with him and then we can see you two at it. I may bring my Mystichrome but if I do, I can't run it as it won't have 500 miles on it. I also heard George bought a 2004 Redfire coupe. Sounds like there will be a lot of S/C Cobras coming. Should be a great event!

Don't forget that MGW is offering $100.00 cash to the fastest Cobra with a power adder and $100.00 to the fastest naturally aspirated Cobra as well as the standard bracket race $$.

Hope to see you in a couple of weeks....

;)

11s are cake. what would you think of 11.11s? That should not be a problem with the right tire combo, trying to secure some 28s before the race.

Well that would be MOST impressive!!! With my setup I'll be happy with high 11's. No slicks just some Nitto DR's on mine. I ran low 12's with a 2.01 60' which I thought was pretty impressive for an easy launch. :D

Low 12s on street tires(I consider Nitto's street tires) is very cool considering the 60'.

This will be fun!!

Just start at the winners circle on the first bulb. Your reaction time would not be that great but dang you would have a head of steam by the time you got up there!!

Shon, Glad your finally going to make it to drag day. I'm shotting for 9.50's on a 100 shot. I finally fixed my nitrous problem and the car does some wicked wheel stands now.:D

Hey Greg, is Isaac going this time? I'll bet the yellow car can put up a high 10.. or so with his new clutch. Did you get the t56? That might be next for me 2.

I haven't heard what state Isaac's car is in. Last I heard he blew the front seal on his blower and was ordering a YS Trim then needed to get it retuned with the bigger blower.

I did get the T56 in mine but I found out my rear control arms are wearing out so I'm going to have them replaced hopefully next Friday. IF I don't get them on this weekend then I MAY miss drag day to get them on before CMP. :( Hopefully all will work out and I'll get it done in time for drag day!

I won't be able to make it. If I get down there, it'll just be to watch and hang out with everyone. My car will be put together in time, but I just don't have enough time to get the car down to Tom for the cage before the drag day.

Well, come on down anyway and I'll let you take the Focus down the strip one time. :thumbsup:
