Yes...and I never really realized how awesome it would be until I got to use it this weekend. It's so much better for burnouts!

Had a great time at the TX2K12 race this past weekend. The beast had her best run so far...10.66 at 131.27 mph. That was with a small 100 shot...no idea how crazy she'll be once the direct port is done. I also know I'm going to have to get my slicks before the fest.

After qualifying they paired me up in my first race against Owen. It was really a no lose for me. If he beat me it's expected...if I beat him I could give him a hard time.

Of course I didn't beat him. Even though he was only on his plate kit, he not only treed me, but his car was faster. He ran consistent low 10s all day.

I've got a bunch of video I'll be putting together, but here are a couple Mlee already posted up.





Visual Velocity was out there taking pics, and they got some really nice shots. Here are a couple of my race with Owen.

That was a qualifying pass. I'm usually pretty quick on the tree.

I'll definitely be ordering slicks and skinnies soon. Drag radials aren't going to cut it anymore.

Did you really have to bring my weight into this?

Kidding. Not really sure I want to start taking things off the car. I'm trying to maintain a balance between looks and performance. I'm not a serious drag racer and probably won't ever be. I think I'm going to add a few hundred horsepower and be done with it.

Is not serious?????

Consistent low 10's is an understatement... 4 passes all 10.0X

Visual Velocity does great work and will also be doing the photos for our big annual Camaro show on the Kemah Boardwalk.

Your car was solid all weekend Russ and you drove the crap out of it...

I think we surprised the hell out of some Supras and GTRs with our big ole heavy cars... LOL

Thanks bro...we were talking about how much there is to remember. After putting on my jacket, helmet, 5 point harness and locking down the 5th cage bar...here's what's I have to do.

1) Hold down the button to turn off traction control
2) Roll up windows
3) Pull up into the water
4) Blip the tires to get them wet
5) Pull up a few feet
6) Pump the brakes
7) Engage the line lock
8) Drop the hammer
9) Shift to 2nd while the tires are burning up
10) Release line lock button and roll out
11) Turn the nitrous pump on
12) Purge the nitrous
13) Stage
14) Wait for the tree
15) Drop the hammer
16) Hold on and shift twice
17) Pick up white slip (hopefully)

9.5) Disengage line lock


I'd forget half of this and think I broke something!

Gee wizz, that is a lot to remember in a short time. I'm glad I only have to watch the lights & put the pedal to the metal! It is going to be fun watching you guys though!

Yeah, I would just sit there continually blipping the gas wondering why I couldn't hook up. And probably in second as well, stalling the engine, looking at stands of folks debating on if I'm retarded or my car broke,

Incredible Russ !!

Out having fun and your car has the looks to match.

Get that direct port and single digits are in your future

Sweet............

Based on the smoke looks like you had a heck of a headwind on the 10.66 run.

I still have to shift, so it's not a full auto.

I hope I can handle the direct port...gonna be a little crazy.

There was definitely a big head wind. Would've loved to have seen it blowing the other way.

You forgot one between 15 & 16.

Your supposed to spin out at about 100 ft and point the front end at your friends so you can waive at them. Then you can continue on down the track.

Not the fastest way down the track but it does maximize the STYLE points!!!!!!!

You definitely got points for style. If we'd had a GoPro on your car I could've seen myself in the video.
