Wow. Fantastic. I'm really thinking of coming. It's been a long time since I've driven a stick, and still getting used to it. Hate to miss a gear. Lol.

Sounds like everyone had a good time in Edmonton and Mission last night. You guys had some decent air and nice ET's for the night.

Can't wait for the 17th here in Medicine Hat. Picked my car up today after the tuning was finished. Tuned on VP MS103 race fuel. It made a little more horse power than last year so I'm eager to get out and make a pass or twenty.

Layla, your DR's are here in Redcliff if you still want them.

What happened to letting me win one on my birthday Dennis??? Good couple of races we had. I was nice to met you. Will definitely race again this summer. I'd like to see what Wayne's car does agains you. My daughters are hooked on drag racing now also, my brother is still bragging about giving Layla's 1LE a beating with his challenger (sorry Layla). My best of the night was the 11.60 @ 123mph. Spent the rest of the night spinning out of the hole. Oh well next Friday!!!

I unlike Dennis can handle the occasional loss, just don't plan to make a habit of it. Will have to have another race with your brother I think the cars are a good match! Great to see all your family out and meet them! Gotta get your daughters out racing, nice to see some ladies at the track.

My best was a 1.90. Not very good for a drag radial. I couldn't figure it out. I messed with tire pressures dropping from 32 to 25 to 22.5 and didn't make much difference. Most were around 2.1, I got the same times with stock power and street tires. Tried several different ways of heating them up from boiling them to a quick burnout. When I'd launch the car tried several different launch rpm's from easing off the line to 4000 rpm. I'll try again next Friday.

I'll give it a try. My cars a 6M. 1400 seems a little low to launch,no. I talked to a couple of guys and they told me to do a dry burnout and avoid the water box. They're guessing the water is spraying into my wheel wells and dripping onto my tires when I stage. I'll drop my tires down more next time
