Been crazy busy the last few days. A lot of updates coming.

ARD finished up my 75 shot Friday night so we could hit the big TX2K11 race this past weekend. Kudos to Owen for working so hard to get this done. Here's the dyno.

I've been anxious to get to the track to try out the blower, track wheels and the new 75 shot. The TX2K11 race this past weekend was the perfect opportunity. We headed out there Saturday morning, and I ran the first couple of times on blower only to work on my burnouts and launches. I had a great time running Mike (mlee) with his new heads/cam/spray setup. Here's that race.



I got a big jump on him (1.63 vs 1.94 60 foot), but with the spray he was gaining quick. I pulled out the win, but our times were virtually identical (11.7961 vs 11.7975). Unfortunately he had to leave, so we didn't have the chance to run again.

I needed to get a qualifying run for Sunday so I decided to spray. I ran an 11:30 @ 126mph, which was obviously my fastest run of the day.

Sunday I pulled up next to a Porsche Turbo S after deciding to make another qualifying run. That car is all wheel drive, and even though I treed him he caught up and passed me at the very end.

Less than an hour later it was time to race. I pull into the staging lanes to find out I was racing the Porsche again! He'd qualified with a 10.90 to my 11.30. I had very little chance of winning anything (there were cars running in the 8s), but I was hoping to make it through the first round. After talking to Owen, we decided to go with a larger nozzle and up my spray to a 100 shot. I went through my burnout, purged the nitrous and lined up at the box. The Mickey Thompson's hooked right up and the car launched like a beast. I treed the Porsche again, but this time pulled away from him all the way down the track. Even more important, I ran a 10.87 at 127mph! I also made it into the 6s in the 1/8 mile.

I lost the next round to a car that was running 9s, but I didn't care. Getting into the 10s for a complete amateur like me was amazing!

Here's the time slip. I'm working on a video and will post it up later.

Dude, that is just sic...

Amazing, Loving it...

your tuner is doing you well... and I love hearing how you ran away fro that Porsche all the way down the track...and I'm also liking that you got the MT's to a 1.6 60 ft... I should be able to hook also... Sure wish I had a cage now, see what mine will really do at chandler... i'll have to back out at the 1/8 mile until the very last pass, and then let them throw me out...

My next project, recent change, like just a minute ago, is for a cage, rather than paint work... less expensive, more needed and necessary, etc... I can paint it later...

I am ordering my driving gear today... Just found out the Simpson is in New Braunfels, the same town where Corey's shop is.. so, it's right down the road... Next, cage and harness, and then see where to go next...

He didnt know what happened And then when the Porsche couldnt catch up...........priceless

That guy was so pissed that he went straight to stage again between rounds and ran his car another 3 times in a row trying to improve......but he couldnt hit 10's again Guess he didnt realize how hot those turbo cars can get in our Houston heat

Completely understand. You gotta keep your priorities straight.

Yea...he didn't know what hit him. I talked to him afterward, and he was really cool. I was definitely happy with my numbers...I've only been to the track a few times.

Woo Hoo... LoneStarCamaro was able to e-mail me the videos... It only took 35 minutes to download the Russ Mike race, the second time I tried... But Thank You Sir... Awesome...

OMG, Russ and Mike, I don't care who you are, that was a drag race... psssst, oh crap, there he went, hold my beer, I gotta chase this sucker down... 11.79 to 11.79... Wow, just wow...

And that Vette owner is probably still at least as pissed as the Porsche owner...

No problem! I had to trim the first few seconds off of the Russ Mike race (to get it below 25 MB for email), but left Mike's purge.

My new digital SLR came today, so I decided to snap a few shots when I got home. Here are some pics of the new dual tank and some better shots of my Forgestar track wheels.
