Neumatic-
".....

I think they should have redone the ladder after 2 of the guys that qualified didn't come back. Would have been a lot better, no one would have had byes and it would have went a lot smoother. "

Its not wise to change the Ladder once set- it could end up pairing the two fastest or slowest cars against each other- which is not what the rest of the pairings are coordinated as. The Bye affected me too- it's just part of the game- good or bad.

Congrats to you on the win- was great to run you twice that day- just didnt have the Cam power to get me close.

Give that poor car a break for a while- Mr 40 pass guy.

Tim

Thank you very much to all who organized Fest IV for letting me run my '69 1st gen drag car at a 5th gen event. And thanks to the Indy staff for letting me be first down track on Friday on an incredibly well prepped track. That Friday morning 8.75 @ 153 was my all time personal best, and that car's best ever run. I think that may have been the quickest all motor run Friday. Then the second run in afternoon heat was an 8.86 @ 152. Only lost .1 et and 1 mph in the heat of the day.

I wanted to enjoy the rest of the Fest on Saturday, so I left it trailered for the day. And some of those shop cars were getting crazy loose, so I didn't want to risk getting tangled up with one. Mine is not really a shop car, so I had no chance in that class anyway. The shop I brought was a lunch box size tool box and a battery charger.

It was kind of a last minute scramble getting the car there. Bent a valve and busted a rocker stud/nut the prior weekend. But was able to get the motor back together on Tues and Wed of Fest week, and on the trailer Thursday morning.

Thanks also to my awesome car club, the Detroit 5th Gen Camaro Club.
I think we all had a great time at the Fest.

I'm talking about completely redoing the ladder not just having you race the other guy that had the bye.

Thanks, you were running very well, probably the most consistent car there. Its obvious why you were in the bracket race finals.

Didn't do 40. Only 35 or 36 on the weekend hahahaha

Not sure. I did have a video of one 5th gen with nitrous that launched hard I will look up and post picture above tomorrow. -ADDED
I thought the track was well prepped- at least for my power level.
not sure what others thought, but there were several new personal best runs by a few cars so it had to be decent enough- no complaints here except they put some cones at the tree to offset the launch which felt weird launching from the middle of the lane.

RX SS,

Was great to meet you two. Sorry your trip didn't go as planned.

I did some looking and I nominate you for:

Best Tape Job (for burnouts)

My friends know how much tape Ive gone thru on mine-just never on the track.
Kudos to you for spending the time to keep the car more Show worthy.

Take care.
Tim

Well it was my first time on the strip, so I was not thinking competing, but I ran 12.409 on street tires! Had a blast - wish I had taped my fenders lol!

I was car 613. Thanks for posting a pic of it. Here's my last run of the day. Had to drop out afterward due to a clutch issue.
