Well, since a few of us have rainchecks, and John wanted to go before the end of the season, and Kyle needs to test his new setup... can anyone think of a good day to go out there?

I guess its a go for Friday the 17th!!!!!!!

Post if you are going.

Just out of curiousity, what kind of shape is it in, when was it purchased (how long has it been on the car), and any problems with it? Reason for selling it?

Thanks,

WHERE IS JIMMY SIDECAR??????????????? I WANT SOME .....your subframes are on and you got no excuse :D

Oh you mean my 55 pounds of ballast???

Well...
No excuse ... except I'm quite BROKE$$$...

What does this little adventure cost???(actually interested---since directly challenged)
Not counting ... Fuel and .......(heaven forbid)BREAKAGE???

I suppose I could slam it on "the card"... if they take a Visa that is...

Otherwise we could just do the math...

But the there is always driver error(something I seem to be fairly proficient at)...

I do know Mach ones are a deadly opponent!!!

They leave... much better than Terminators do(much less or no hop)

Do they allow heads up ... grudge runs???

I've not been to the drags since... 1984??? maybe before that...

I've never dragged a stick car...

I've never dragged an IRS car...

I've never power/speed shifted a stick car(crunch!!!)

Not much to gain if I do win... It's more than expected .. :doubt:

But if I screw up and ...
1. can't launch
2. wheel hop and let off
3. miss a shift
4. slip into a coma on the tree

I'm dinner...

And the subject of ridicule for months to come ...(until the next open track event.... with turns!!!!)

It would be fun though...
1st time at the drags with "my little mustang"...
Would finally get a time slip(to find out just how bad I am)


Then again....

I would love a 12 and some MACH 1 BLOOD!!!

I doubt it ... but it is the expected outcome...

Ya got me going.. a bit .... with the CHALLENGE

Freaking testosterone just will not cut me any slack!!!..........lol

Hmmmm....

Its 15 dollars to race and yes they allow grudge matches and I might have a free pass for you so it will cost you Nothing to get your Reptile Ass handed to you by AMERICAN ICON KNOWN AS THE MACH 1.

Sorry for getting overly excited....... :D

Helmets required???(leaving straight from work)

Recomendations for a 1st timer...

Is this the Baytown facility... IE: the NHRA track????

Or is this that semi ghetto 1/8th miler on the "norf side"???

Those who break the 14s must wear a helmet, so if you have one bring it. I'm sure you could borrow mine in between runs if no one has one to spare. :thumbsup: Maybe you could borrow Stan's??? :dunno:

I run my drag radials at 18psi. they have an air compressor at the track as well if you need to add more air to your tires....or you can hit up one of the gas stations on your way out.

So it looks like I'll be running solo at the track for a while.....don't worry guys...I'll get in a few runs for ya'll. :thumbsup:

93KingCobra
12-16-2004, 09:39 PM
Actually it is better to run about 15psi on DR B/C after you heat them up in the pit your temp rises to about 17psi and that is where you want to be... ;)

HOLY CRAP!!!

The track shuts down for "the winter"...

And it opens up .......3 weeks later?????!!!!!

Now that's funny!!!

In Syracuse ... we were down from October to April!!!

I have a feeling running a Terminator on a 50 degree track with F1s is going to be a little bit like ....
