So far mine hasn't been set backs... It's been add ons.... Oh well.... Tires, wheels, sways, line lock, short block, axles, suspension add ons etc...all this to support a little ole pair of turbos...

I don't need a line lock, because I'm not dragging my car. Hendrix hasn't contacted me about a sponsorship yet.

Doug, How many SD cards are you bringing to the fest for your gopro?

nope, the line lock helps get the power to the ground by allowing for decent burnouts, no sense in having all the power if you spin them all the way through the 1/4 mile...

None.

I actually don't own the gopro. But, what I did on the last trip was download one SD card info onto the laptop while driving while recording with another. ALL the video was put onto the laptop while driving...made it easier on the pocketbook.

Tru that, but, why spend several hundred for new rotors for the back when the old ones are warped beyonbd use, and or constantly replace the brake pads... boil the brake fluids etc... hmmm, I seem to remember that you know something about that last part...
