The drag strip is like sniffing glue, it's cheap, it's a decent buzz, it doesn't last long and they are all the same.
Road racing is like China White Heroin, the buzz is stronger, the high lasts for hours, it's extremely addictive and they are all different.
I can't wait for my next
Track fix.

Lol yes 1527 miles to be exact it feels good to be running again the tune is a bit off though I'm bogging off the line, but only way to perfect it is keep data logging and trusting Shawn.

I Launched at 1300 1500 & 1800 last night and best result was from 1500 resulting in a 11.332@123 which is my new P.R (personal record) my car is still bogging off the line and resulting in a shitty 1.7 60' shawn down at lethal is taking care of that though.

Well I thought he was but until right now he hasn't sent me a new tune. I was extremely impressed on Matts customer service it was pretty much trackside tuning for you. I haven't even enjoyed a good tune from lethal besides the base tune. But I guess that's the risk you take when going remote tune.
