Drag Strip

Well....everyone.....I'm headed out to the track today with my son. We will be taking my HD Video camera hoping to get some good video of my runs. This track "Redline Raceway" is only 1/8 mile.

Remember that today is with just my current modifications.

My 17 inch rear rims are at the shop getting slicks fitted this week and then I will run again next weekend.

I'm also in the process of getting a 75 shot NOS kit installed pretty soon and I have decided to bypass the new exhaust modification so I can do the NOS setup.

Will let everyone know how it turns out today.

Peace>>>

The car ran well. I still need a lot of practice with the lights though.
The car never seemed to slip at all or at least I didn't feel it slipping from inside the car.

Here are the numbers (1/8th mile track):

R/T 1.1414
60ft 1.9500
330ft 5.3282
1/8th 8.1407

1/8 mph 87.55
