Looks like a nice night to race. I'm helping my buddy with the 7.25 car tomorrow all day at Byron for the MDRA race so I'm not going anywhere tonight. :(

Not too bad.

Jim pulled off a 11.974 yesterday with a 1.7 60ft.

Should be a few folks racing there on Monday.

I have a ported intake coming, Imma hold off until I install it and have Jim look at the tune.

I was at Byron last weekend, met a few 5th gen folks there. I don't know that it hooked better than the grove.

I want to try slicks/dr night at the grove pretty soon.

Bad70, I'd be willing to try NLR, I had good luck with that track in the past.

With the 18's up front, I think I'm down to 3720 w/o driver:

Yeah, looks like I got a few interested in coming with me as well. That's why I go early. Take advantage of the cool air and better track prep from the weekend.

I'm ready to see your 11 sec slip. Shoot, I have a Turbo kit sitting at home doing nothing too... just saying lol

I'm patient at this point, the air has been too warm for me to go quicker.

Patient and smart! No sense in beating on the car for no possible results. But they are saying a high of 72 on Monday... so I'm hoping for low 60's in the morning to try and get this fat truck in the 12's.
