Those with scanners do join in!!!
Those with out .......START TYPING!!!

I am such a :retard: I can't shift worth a CRAP!!
All I wanted was just one 12...
Even a 12.99999999999999999999999999!!!!!!!

Oh well ...

It was fun(even though I said it wasn't)... :baby: I can be kinda cranky at times :rolleyes:

Amazing how much water was getting up on the starting line !!!

How many mistakes can you make in one run???

Spun, hopped, let off, bumped the rev limiter, and missed a shift all in one run!!! :tongue: :shtowned:

Since the uploaded attachments were unread able I removed all but my best run... #4

Had a blast guys.. People with video can post them. E or Mike can you email me a few of my runs, yes I would like the one when I raced Edmond :edmond: I wish I would have brought my ET streets, my street tires once they spun it was all over, they would spin till red line & not hook at all. I need to shift better too. My mph was good, best of 107.21 mph. The times were not as good as I wanted, but it was good, did drive the car home..

Best time & mph on the left
Best 60' on the right.
I actually won every race I ran. Beat a Lightning, Firebird, Probe, 01 Cobra :edmond: & something else I cannot remember.

You were rocking MAN!!
I thought you did great!!!
Gotta love that "hair dryer"... a little tricky with no traction and street tires though...

Nice job "getener" off the line!!!

Great to hang at I-Hop after also...(even though I was still sulking) :(

Three thousand nine hundred and sixty six pounds... with less than 1/2 a tank of gas and a 52 year old cranky a$$ biotch in the seat...

Wow!!! These things are......... PIG HEAVY!!!

Hey John!!! thanks for taunting me out of my cocoon!!!

Now I know... I have a high 12 second car... that needs a high 12 second driver :tongue:

I still wonder how the heck you guys are hauling drag tires to the track in these tiny a$$ 4 thousand pound cars???!!!???

MORE TIMES PLEASE...

AND.......
:ttiwwop:

Would someone be willing to lend some analysis to this run...

I do remember it left really good...
I used about 1/2 throttle and slipped the clutch to load the tires "just enough"...

After that... I have no clue!!!

Did I let off before the finish line and MPH light or what???

DUH??? :retard:

Best:
R/T: .531
60': 2.122
1/8: 8.749
1/4: 13.531
MPH: 102.18

Even though I spun off the launch and didn't get much traction off the DRs. The track wasn't prepped well and the water was EVERYWHERE. :(

...and there's a grinding noise from my rear end on the car....will try to fix it this coming week. :( :(

Well I did my best ever Fri with a 12.508 witch is very good but I know I can do alot better.. I was talking to James(Ratt Fink) and he was telling me that his 2nd cobra did 12.6 with stock tires. So I know I can squeez out atleast a 12.2 or a 12.3 out of her before long..

...and there's a grinding noise from my rear end on the car....will try to fix it this coming week. :( :(Would the water maybe be one of the factors in my getting 0 traction...as in spinning all the way up to redline in 1st and 2nd?

Edit: I got a best of 14.8 out of a low 14 high 13 second car...I blame the track:mad:

As much fun as the 1/4 track is I still LOVE the open track. That being said.....hopefully towards the middle of the summer I'll be doing high 12's at the 1/4. :cool:

Colt got into the high 12's on just minor bolt-ons and 4.30s. Not sure if I'll go up that high...maybe 4.10s. IF I get some giggle juice it's only to be for those street races....wait, I don't street race :D....with the pesky F-bodies and Vette owners.....I don't want to be a "punk" b/c I don't race anymore. ;)

Sorry I missed out on the fun, sounds like you guys had a blast. I would like one night at the track to see what the 03 would do. I'm thinking low 12's. If yall do it again count me in. :thumbsup:

We'll most likely go again in Jan when they open the Test N Tune's back up. All day Saturday for $20.

Friend of mine went on Sun night and ran an 11.87 in his '04 Cobra. He's got an Apten ported blower, exhaust, cold air and a few other and making 501rwhp......and the 11.87 was on street tires. :eek:

The best mod anyone can have is practice. It still seems like I am learning things on each pass.

Oh man, Ice racing (or atleast snow racing) is going to be in the Gran Turismo 4. I want that game. Oh yea, and I need major practice.
