Every friday night my whole entire highschool career I was at the track the best thing to do is launch from 2000 and feather the clutch. Auto-put foot on brake and gas peddle and just feather the break

Hardest part I've had with my auto so far is the launch but lucky for J he's an LS3 so he has the control on that...mines all stupid computers

Road course is going to be a BLAST.



THIS is what I've been waiting for...and what I set my car up for. Granted, I still need some wider front tires and rims, but what the hell. It's still going to be a blast and will only leave me something to do for next year!

You should chime in on the Team LS3 vs. Team L99 thread with this quote. =)

Exactly. I have the wheels and power mods. I need bushings. In exactly one week from right now, I'll be sleeping in my hotel room.

My car is so chipped up after 40k miles I think I'll just buy a front fascia.

Chris is blue taping his. I'm gonna skip it. BUT, it's as clean at this very moment as it's been in ............ well............ almost 2 years.

I'm not wrapping it. Jeff's work is amazing. Staying the night in Bakersfield is what might get it dirty again. I figure I'll need a new front fascia before SEMA anyways. =/

That was a 13.4 at 111mph I believe. Missed third, traction control off, and no launch. I'm pretty sure I can get down into the 11's next time I take it to the track. My highest trap of the day was 118.
