How about some shop customer team racing? Minimum of three cars per shop, drop high and low ETs, avereage the rest. Shop with the lowest average ET takes home bragging rights.

One of the Houston shops would win, just based on potentially available racers. Or maybe ADM or Lethal.

Thing is the da on my 10.75 and 9.99 passes was good, but still in the positives. Floated around 200-300 all night. Some negative da and I would hit 60's and 80's probably.

I could tell you who wouldn't win, lol.


Be fun but I think ADM would take it. Be close though.

Blown Posi FOR THE LOSS! This was my first run of the night, but I found a way to keep both spinning during the burnout. Problem was, even on my good launches, about 30 ft out, the posi lets go and it kicks power from one rear wheel to the other allowing it to spin some, or crab walk is what it feels like up to about 40-45 mph.

Check the rollout on the tires. Not uncommon for them to be different. If they're over an inch different, it can unload the posi. The radials are a lot better then bias tires in that aspect, they're all pretty much the same size
