ya , 5th gen where doing work last night for sure . my girl friend had a blast for the first time at a car event. u drive the wheels of that car. the drag radial class is the hardest class down there if u dont have 600+ at the wheels u dont have much of a chance unless someone misses a gear lol

Glad to see you make a good showing for us! I had fun Friday night beating up on the higher HP procharged car (no not you Paul) LOL. Paul and I just did not get it done on Saturday. Then I did not even get to race any with Paul ! Guess we need to go to CC before the shootout and all have some fun and Paul and I can race 3 or 5 times LOL

Paul I got too excited and smoked the tires in 1st, 2nd and 3rd, so don't feel bad I should have figured it out after a gear or two hu.....

We are going to have to go back to the track where we can be more at home...

I got a set of 4 weld wheels on the way too, Bobby wants me to try his bias ply 26.5" ET steets first. I got to get that 10.77 pass in the books LOL

You should be able to get into the 11s pretty easy, Bobby ran an 13.04 bone stock. Bobby is ordering me a set of Weld wheels today, they should be in in about 30 days so we should be able to get a trip or 2 in to CC before the shootout. I will set up a date(s) to go with Paul and let you know, I will trailer mine down so if one of us breaks.
