No I'd hope to get out again next week.

I've been racing for a few years so I know that better track conditions will yield some good results. I've been 1.35 on a drag radial in the past.

I'm weather watching, want to hit GLD Wed or Thur. Thur has a higher chance of rain.

I am not likely attending Atlanta as my 7 second buddy is probably racing a local 1/2 mile deal so I'd stick around town to help for that.

You'll like a converter for sure.

If I can hook the 555R's then great but if they can't hold the converter I'll get different tires. But I don't see running shorter tires I don't like the way they look.

Fahh, I have a conference call with someone in Tokyo Wed 9pm, maybe I have to focus on Thursday. Sometimes being busy at work sucks.

Anyone else down?

Just got back from the Grove. I raced quite a few 5.0L mustangs. I just put on my new Nt05R 305/45r18's. Car hooked like crazy. In fact, it bogged too much. I need to figure out my launch a little better but went an all time best 12.48@114 with a 1.90 60ft. I can get my 60ft down a little with practice. Most 5L ran 12.8 range. Track seemed really good tonight.

I would guess about 40 cars and a few bikes. I wasn't too busy, but enough people there to make it fun.

Nice, I could have run tonight but I have a work call that's starting in 5 minutes.

Any idea what the temp was up there? 57?

Yeah, I saw that too... :-/ maybe next week for me. Might have a small group going Tuesday.

I think I am going to try the factory launch control. See if it helps the turbos spool at all when launching.

sent from my galaxy s3. that would explain the errors.
