Local 1/8 mile today :(

Had an ok day for the short track. Ran faster so thats a plus. I think in the right conditions I can get my 10 second pass on motor. I'll be damn close thats for sure. Sorry guys no Video's today. I was dissapointed I had to go race at the short track.
I am left lane, did I metion the clutch was smokin hot? The passs before this was a 1.63 short time.

And that PISS POOR RIGHT LANE is MEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE

Holy SHIITE it is hard to get any decent times on STREET TIRES.

My best 60' of 10 passes was 2.18 and the best ET was 8.42 and I had four 91 MPH trap speeds.....

UP NEXT.....Drag Package wheel setup. I did not have 1 log that there was not wheel spin some where in the run. Plus the conditions at the track were FAR FROM IDEAL.....the fact that Orange was able to PB in these conditions says ALOT ABOUT what those boys are doing.....




HAD A HELLA GOOD TIME HANGIN OUT WITH YOU and SAM TONIGHT.....Kinda bummer we both had buddies break....BUT HEY WE DROVE HOME !

All in all it was a good day, was not a good track surface to work with. There was no good passes for stock tires to be made.
