    Oh well, the 02 is back to stock anyway.
    Nothing in San Diego? How far is Pomona?

    Edit: Just googled it. 117 miles to get to Pomona. Not terrible. That's about what I drive to get from Prescott to Firebird, a little less to Speedworld.

    Keep Pomona in mind Jim, I'll be out there in November for the big NHRA meet/cackle fest/Nostalgia event this year. If you have some time we can hook up.

    If you are spinning, gears or a TC won't help. You need tires. But remember with traction, all that torque will go someplace else and its usually the rear-end.
