The Farm

I took mine to Farmington Dragway and I was surprised what it ran. 8.76 @ 83.17 mph. Not bad for a road race setup. It was 1 second quicker and 3 mph faster.

I want to run it in the 1/4. I see high 12's in my future. I may have to borrow some Nittos to do it.

Just keep pulling weight out and you'll get there.

John, what does your car weigh now? I just weighed my mystic with full interior, Saleen rollbar w. crossbar and full tank of gas (no spare) at 3440. That was a pleasant surprise, I was expecting about 100# more.

Considering your substantial cage, that's a lot of weight removed. I didn't realize there was that much fat to trim.
