    I counted as many time slips as I could from this year. I was at 53 and I know I lost a bunch. Its 60+ times down the track this year for sure. In Iowa right now trying to get my new job and visiting. I wanna get this build started very soon.

    Even with 60+ runs, I don't think the 9" TruTrac should be screwed. I'm hoping not. either way, I hope to have this build completed by next racing season. Single digits would be a fun battle to try for. Low 10's would work also. Going to do a compression check on the motor when I get back to Michigan, then start checking out the rear maybe. I do not wanna pull the 88 pound center section out at all, so I might just leave it.

    Yea, I know I will admit, that I raced mine often this year, ( in most people's opinions). 60+ runs is alot in one season. I had ALOT of fun, and alot of good memories from this racing season so to me it was worth it. This car will be getting force fed once I get back on my feet for sure. If I could afford it, I would race this Trans Am everyday honestly. I love the track, and hardly ever race on the streets. It will always a be a street car with the thought of a great 1/4 mile time car. Im really hoping I get a second chance at blowing this Tru Trac apart. I know its going to happen, but hopefully not for awhile.

    I thought you were too lazy to prep the car the previous night

    If I was a betting man, Number 7.

    Anything to do with number 8 is just a PITA

    This too. Not skeered to race it. Do hate changing tires, washing again after wards and putting the passenger seats back in.

    Damn and I thought just emptying the trunk spring rubbers and putting drag radials on was a lot of work

    I like to lose the other seats. Some call it cheating but lighter cars break less often.

    One very good reasons that making something lighter is better than making more power when trying to improve your power-to-weight ratio - easier on parts.
