Another fun racing day

Did some local racing this weekend. It was fun taking down pro street cars that can lift their wheels on launch. The shock on their faces when the banana flies past them

Also got a great batch of E85 that was 72%.

We need more availability. I looked at getting some of that E85R but I think it was over $13 a gallon.

We don't have that issue here. Dozens of places to get it. Although it's usually no more than 65%. I thought about getting the special 5 gallon ones but once you're over say 50% the gain is minimal and doesn't justify the cost unless you've doing bracket racing or something critical like that.
Also I'm still doing all this on 20" tires!!! I think we are going to atco on the 21st so maybe we will finally see how it does on 17s.

66% and sometimes 67% is the best around my area. Somehow Little Rock gets it in the mid 70's but thats a 3 hour 1 way drive. lol

In my location, 66% and occasionally 67% is the best. Little Rock gets it in the mid-70s, but it's a three-hour one-way travel. lol
