    Smile First Time Down the Track!

    So i just got home from my first time running my car at the track.

    I ran 4 times with a best of 13.777 @ 104.97. My other three runs were all around 14 flat at like 103.

    I surprised myself for getting a decent run in for my first time. Really gotta work on getting off the line. Running on street tires doesn't help all that much.

    MODS:
    SLP LMII
    SLP Lid
    UMI 2pt Weld-in SFCs
    Debaffled Hood
    Throttle Body Bypass
    Smooth Bellows
    Short Stick

    I did that when I was learning. it really helps. one asshole said what's with you getting 9.8 and 10. don't you have v8. I told him I was practicing my launches and didn't care about the rest. he left me alone after that. heck now when I can find dr's I run 8.3 haha. I have done alot to my car since then, but even then when I did a real run I was getting 8.9 and 8.8

    Not bad buddy! We'll have to go to Cecil or Atco on a test and tune day so that the track prep is better, we can get more runs in, and get some help from more experienced drivers. How does sometime in the next 2-3 weeks sound? We should get a few guys from around here to go too!

    Dude, WTF is wrong with him...? I don't like making fun of people, but he said he ran 14.2 cause his car was lowered and out of alignment, and now it's not lowered and alligned and he still can't run better? He said he's not leavin the track until he runs 13.4....Dude, I can't wait to show him our time slips hahaha!!! And it was like 55 degrees today, which should be nice air = good runs if the track was prepped well. I want his ass from a roll, dig, or whatever. He called you out at Tom Oates remember, so I'll just take your place lol.
