True on the tires... though for the mile I've got a set of Pure race tires... The HIGH speed runs in the mile usually only take between 20 and 30 or so seconds... Heat isn't a great issue, but I believe the term is centripital force is a big deal....

The people that run and tech the mile are pretty strict though on any car intending to reach or exceed 200 mph...

From context clues, I figured it was drag coefficient, just didnt know why it was CD instead of DC, so I thought maybe it was something else also, im not versed in all this stuff so I may have made up acronyms by myself

We re-arranged cars, trucks, trailer and boats today to kill time while hanging out, but it's 6:15 and no truck. I called dispatch and there is no answer. I have not received any communication today. If they do not show up today there will most definitely be an impact on the balance going to the driver...

Weekend dispatch SUX here too... probably should have asked for the drivers cell # ..... Did they say if he would be calling when he was close?

Yes they did, but a courtesy call anytime yesterday afternoon or earlier today would have been nice. It's doesn't take any extra time to make a call while motoring down the Interstate.

If I miss an appointment, the customer can say, "come back tomorrow"... I don't miss appointments.

Tell him to come back tomorrow, you closed at noon

GEEEEEEZ its been a long time (since I've been in here and the forum lol). Saw a pretty sick black 5th Gen on a trailer the other day and texted one of my friends about it, she then told me to check it because the SST was being transported home. I was like wtf... BIG HUGE Congrats Bruce, I wouldn't worry too much about the transport. A lot of guys run pretty hard during the week pushing their limit of 60-70 hours and then reset for 34 hours to run legal again. Its an enclosed transport and I'm positive its being babied don't be surprised if its covered in a blanket when it gets there, seriously. Enjoy that whip Brotha!!!

Thanks A...

I think I got a little screwed here. They were a week late in picking it up and then the driver has never made contact with me about dates/times. It all came from dispatch, but they never called. Nelson told me that it had been picked up. I have to keep calling them. On the latest paperwork it said that it would be here on June 22nd. Last time I called dispatch (on Friday morning) they said was it would be here by the weekend. Sat evening at the latest. No SST yet. I trust they will transport it correctly. It is the lack of ANY communication that pisses me off. I can wait as long as I know what the status is. Anyway, enough of rant. I just want the damn car...

Hope all is going well with you and your beast. Have you done any videos recently ?

Take Care.

An EVO, huh? Well I am sure those can be modded to be little speed demons...

If anyone does NOT deserve this right now it's you Bruce.

So after I take some pics here in my garage in Mobile, I'll send it on the way.

But for real, the lack of tracking sucks here.
