Commerce Test N Tune weekend after Southern Nats.

Well since the southern nationals were postponed this weekend and will be made up next weekend.. that assures that the may 10th test n tune on friday night will be cancelled. According to my weather app on my phone... next weekend has a good chance of rain as well. So basically im making a thread for whoever wants to go to test n tune the wekeend after the southern nats finally gets ran.

So with a TBD date who all is still interested?

I just bought a new Snell 2010 approved helmet at Summit Racing in McDonough.
Have 4 motorcycle helmets at home but didn't want to be turned away at the track, plus I will need it for the Georgia half mile in September

I wanted to buy a helmet from Summit. Tried to order one from them last night as I don't get to the southside of the Atlanta much. The Impact 1320 in flat black in my size wouldn't pull up on there website, so I called the customer service number. Explained to the rep what I wanted, he gave me a part number, but it was for gloss black. I gave up and ordered one from Jeg's. Should ship on the 23rd.

I have new respect for those of you who can properly modulate the "go pedal" and get off the line!
Weather cooperated, good turn-out of participants, and lots of helpful talk while waiting in the lanes.
So, my first 1/4 mile run ever was the quickest at 13.532 at 102.48. I zoned out at the tree!! Too much thinking as I watched the lights, watched the guy next to me leave the line, realized I had a green light, and left the line. 1.325 reaction time, 2.268 60'.
Ran 3 more times and totally smoked the tires leaving the line each time, 14.249 at 108.51 and 14.217 108.91. 60's were 2.850 and 2.848.
Last run of the night had a Mustang beside me, he hooked up and left me at the line as I spun in place. Eased off the gas to gain traction and I was rolling! Quick shift into second and I was gaining ground on him. Unfortunately I was so excited that I was closing in on him I hit the rev limiter at the top of second...
Note to self for next time - Bill, run your own race
Can't wait for next time!!

You let a mustang win!? You're out of the club!!!

I was hoping to make it last night but I didn't want to look like the one a-hole friend who didn't show up to the party cause of racing. I'll hope to be there next time.

So the embarrassing 60' that I didn't post above was the 3.286 on the last run when I was lined up with the Mustang Can we say UP IN SMOKE? Felt like I had wooden wagon wheels for rear tires! BTW, that's with nannies on!
I'm actually considering taking the Jeep to the next T&T, 4WD Turbo Diesel w/ Automatic. Maybe that will compensate for my lack of launch skill!
Anyone heading there June 7th or 14th?
