There's something wrong with my car..........

I'm supposed to be losing a lot of time for the southern heat and humidity and these 21" 'boat anchors' of wheels on my car. But for some reason I'm running sub 5 second 0-60s and advertised quarter mile times.

According to the 'experts' I sould be losing more than that.

What should I do?

I have 200 lbs of sand bags for the winter up here that I can sell you. That may help.

if your car is going so slow, you should add some NOS to the gas....



that should fix it....

Take the tires off. Less traction = slower times. No need to thank me, just glad I could help.

I don't have any times but mine looses traction in 1st and 2nd and chirps hitting 3rd and 4th. Is something wrong with it too?

Yup, I think you have a problem too. This will be normal in the winter. Just hope we don't get faster.

I have a 250-lb. drum set that'll fit (w/out passengers) and should help slow you down a bit, if you'd like to borrow it. haha

I've heard a tank of 87 octane will cure that problem. Glad your happy now. Still I wait. (jealous)
