Its not wise to change the Ladder once set- it could end up pairing the two fastest or slowest cars against each other- which is not what the rest of the pairings are coordinated as. The Bye affected me too- it's just part of the game- good or bad.

Congrats to you on the win- was great to run you twice that day- just didnt have the Cam power to get me close.

Give that poor car a break for a while- Mr 40 pass guy.

Tim
I'm talking about completely redoing the ladder not just having you race the other guy that had the bye.

Thanks, you were running very well, probably the most consistent car there. Its obvious why you were in the bracket race finals.

Didn't do 40. Only 35 or 36 on the weekend hahahaha

Not sure. I did have a video of one 5th gen with nitrous that launched hard I will look up and post picture above tomorrow. -ADDED
I thought the track was well prepped- at least for my power level.
not sure what others thought, but there were several new personal best runs by a few cars so it had to be decent enough- no complaints here except they put some cones at the tree to offset the launch which felt weird launching from the middle of the lane.

RX SS,

Was great to meet you two. Sorry your trip didn't go as planned.

I did some looking and I nominate you for:

Best Tape Job (for burnouts)

My friends know how much tape Ive gone thru on mine-just never on the track.
Kudos to you for spending the time to keep the car more Show worthy.

Take care.
Tim

Well it was my first time on the strip, so I was not thinking competing, but I ran 12.409 on street tires! Had a blast - wish I had taped my fenders lol!

I was car 613. Thanks for posting a pic of it. Here's my last run of the day. Had to drop out afterward due to a clutch issue.

+1. Wish I would have been able to do the bracket racing but had a great time during the eliminations and it was nice being able to learn how it works since I had never done it before.

What were the rules for the stock V8 class? Stock internal or 100% stock?

2nd place V8 stock headed back to Louisiana early and missed the pictures. We made him swear next to the "Dreaded Black Suburban" that he wouldn't show his trophy before leaving.

I bet he's not in the stock class next year.
