Because it's so fun to watch you repeat this.

Night Pete.

I thought it was because Randy couldn't roll down the dragstrip on his Flintstone wheels, so someone lent him a set. They just happened to be 18" and had some drag radials on them...right Randy?

It's ok, you're gonna smoke Phone book next fest, right?

Even Tulsa has to schedule Oklahoma every once in a while.

What would App. State be without Michigan?

He told me I could.........

I don't think he expected 18 inch super light drag wheels and coaching.

I got chris's back if he needs any help, and remember pas ( point and shoot ) driver got hole shot bad, and it would have been really interesting if Chris hadn't spun so bad at the top of first...

And yes, Fred wheels might look good but they suck at rolling.....

But, by the time I go through all the d@mn trouble of buying shipping painting switching tires scratching paint getting them fixed yadda yadda yadda (notice how it goes on and on...), maybe I should just get new wheels...LIGHTER wheels...stop modding for looks are start modding for performance. I mean hell, I LOVE the way it handles on the street and track already...and it looks good. But, those wheels look GREAT, I can get them in the size I'd like, AND they are lighter...(and I could probably paint them to match my car too... )

So, Chris...

You know what you need to do!

I wonder if GTA had won, would PQ be saying "he had an unfair advantage... his car was built by Tom Henry Racing"?

This is always the way of things unless you have 2 identical cars with 2 drivers who are identical twins who have the exact same driving experience. Even then, one might say "he had the better lane."

I applaud both of you for having the guts to actually race for all to see. It made for a hilarious thread that was fun to follow and play in. It made the fest more exciting for a lot of us (even those of us who couldn't attend!) I wish you could have both won! You guys are great friends and I hope you'll continue to give us more friendly banter as next year's fest approaches. You both rock!

Doug, you are welcome to bolt my wheels and tires on the back of your car and see how they look on it... Piano black F14's. Drive them around for a week or two and see how they handle... Bare in mind they are drag radials but the roll well on the street if the pressure is kept up around 32 psi...let me know...

Doo EEt Doug.


And Chris - You really need to snag a set of dedicated Bogarts with drag radials for THR22. Or, get your 20's widened and put on a set of 305/315's. PZeros are just that for drag racing - zero traction. :( With all of the guys in the Jax club you should borrow a set just once to see/feel the difference.

But...they will make some really great black strips from your new garage to the road - and beyond.

Yeah, I'm doing the what do I do dance...

I want a nice set of "pretty" wheels for DD... and I'd like to get more serious about driving my car at the track... specifically AutoX... I could do a compromise and get good looking but heaver wheels with a semi performance tire... for everything... Or have two sets for dd and track days....

No matter what I do. I have to be able to drive my car to an event... so even if I get a track only set up... the tires will have to be driven to the event.... for me that's over 100 miles to a track...

I just don't have a plan for a tuck and trailer to go to the track at this time.

When we do track days, when we have done our benchmark testing we drive our test cars to and from the track. When the cars are not going to make a video run at the track, we drive them with the exact same wheels and tires we used at the track.

I can't do the truck and trailer thing either. That's why I got 20" wheels this time to drive on the street or track... drag or autocross. Also, I got the "compromise" drag radials so I would be reasonably safe if I got caught out in the rain with them. I suppose I could always get a set of 18s with MTs for the rear if I ever got really serious about drag times. But what I have now will let me give drag racing a try and they don't look too bad on the street.

I have spine problems and just can't be swapping wheels myself. It's cool that your new garage will have a lift. That will make it a lot easier for you to swap wheels for track days.
