Thanks, I may ride down on Sunday...IF I'm able to pick up the car in Raleigh on Friday. I had some engine repair done and was trying to get the body work completed also but it didn't work out. I'm just going to have the paint and stuff done locally. I hope to see you! :thumbsup:

Well I know for sure now that I will not be there. I can't go get my car Friday because my oldest son is having his wisdom teeth cut out on Friday. :( I guess that means I'll be going to Bristol in August! :D :thumbsup:

I plan to be there Sat & Sun as well & probably run True Street. My redfire is sporting the club logo in the lower windshield do stop by & say "Hello". Not sure about my wardrobe just yet. I'd heard it was gonna be a clothing optional deal. :D

I gotta tell everyone fun ford weekend is awesome. I have never seen so many stangs in one place. It is definitly the place to be.

Kilroy,
I didnt see you until you were running your car. Looked like you were doing pretty good.:thumbsup:

Kilroy,
I didnt see you until you were running your car. Looked like you were doing pretty good.:thumbsup: Thanks, Rodo. Traction was an issue out of the hole and my 60's were .1-.3 off normal & the end result suffered. Driver error played a major role on the first two passes with the third being my only clean shifting performance. I think it was stage fright. When Evan Smith is all around your car snapping pics & then you read his press credentials dangling from his neck & realize it is Revvin Evan Smith... I think I tried too hard to row quickly. :twitchy: My ET was off .3-.5 my best & MPH was down (on clean run by 1-2mph). I still had a great time though.

I'm going back down tomorrow to T&T and run the bracket race. If you're still around tap me on the shoulder & remind me how badly I sucked Saturday :D

I wish I would have ran true street! There were like 5 guys with 03-04's from Chattanooga area running...a comp orange, screaming yellow,redfire, sonicblue, silver...all they needed was a black one to get in on the fun. I bet that cruise was awesome.

I bet that cruise was awesome. By my calculations my avg was 12.123 (a bit off pace for me). I placed 27th out of the ~110 entries as posted on the trailer today and there was a comp orange Terminator just behind me @#28. I think its TS number was 1169. My TS number was 1168. :thumbsup: Yeah, the cruise was pretty cool. I think one car threw a belt or overheated on the cruise & one guy after he'd parked had an electrical fire & had to pop his hood during the cool down (automatic DQ).

Kilroy,

I think you did pretty good man.:thumbsup: Yeah the guy in the orange car behind you is from the Chatt. area. His name is Lamar, goes by Boost Freak on some of the other forums. I gotta get in on the true street class when ffw is in Bristol!

So my first two passes had issues with 60' as well as some driver error. My third pass still had a poor 60' but I managed to snick all the gears. I was ecstatic & unusually vocal. It's pretty funny, actually.
