And I must say, That was a lot of fun!!! If you havn't done it.... I would highly reccomend it!!

(Started Drinking 40oz of Bud Light)

I was there with my Brother and Sister-in-law, Stang01 (which couldnt race because of paperwork!!!! :x ), EVal, Maijinsoul (3.8 ) and Jedikd (3.8 ). My brother took 4 vids of me, which I will upload on monday.

I did a total of 6 runs, only 1 of which I won... they did a crappy job of teaming up comeptitive cars... Hell, I ran against a 12 second car!!! :shock:

My times came in this order. Remember that I was nervous as hell, and like I have said before, the raction time on a computer and the reaction time of a foot are 2 VERY DIFFERENT THINGS!!!!! Scans of the slips to come tomorrow.

Races 1-4 have video that will be posted on Monday. Race #2 has some very disturbing commentary from Stang 01 :p :twisted: . I KNOW where you live Stang01 :p :D :p

Damn that was a lot of fun!!!!!!!!! I took 13 minutes of video!! 11 of those minutes were in a "Ride Along" From the trunk. The best you can get out of it is commentary and a good look at my CD player... Actually, you cant see ####!! for the first 4 minutes. Then all you can see is shadows. So I think I'll just isolate the Audio file and let you guys hear 11 minutes of racing commentary and how I shifted. (If you want the crappy vid, let me know and I'll host it for a little bit.)

I love Racing legally!!!! IT's so much fun.

When I was done after the last race, I decided to treat myself to a 40 of Bud Light (gotta get light because I think I'm getting a gut :( ). And I drank the whole thing durring this post!!! :D Yes, I'm wasted!!! But Damn it, I deserve it!!!!! I just had 6 of the most exciting races (in my perspective) in my life!!! Racing without the worry of geting pulled over!!!! Great expierence!!!

(finished drinking bud light) YUM!!!!! :D

I think I may got to next week's races too!!!! Damn this is a lot of fun!!!! You guys should really try it (if you havn't).

Pics/vids coming Monday. Slips coming tomorrow!!

I'm drunk :mrgreen:

Comments, or tips are very welcome!!!! YES , I know I have to work on my 60"!!! I'm working on it!!! BTW, My rear tire pressures were at 29.5 (thanks to Stang01' tire gauge!! Thank you agian Stang01!!!!!!!)

Stang01,
You'll hear what you said tomrrow when I upload the videos :twisted: . Just remember, I plan on racing you, and I WILL win. BTW.. the next racing is next weekend!!!! If you dont want to go that soon, we can go to the next one.


MFB,
I'm going to see if I can steal an axle from a GT. Then I'll bolt that thing up to my car. It will only change the ratio to 3.27, but it's the T-Lok that I really want.

man, us pre99s have to work really hard to get in the 15s where as those damn ugly 99+s :p can get a 15.7 stock (ive seen it).

just look into a good set of gears (.5 off), maybe an alum driveshaft, some weight reduction, some P&P. youll be good to go

i'm very impressed. though your 60's are horrendous, your car is on the verge of 15's as it is. that doesn't happen often, so be glad! every .1 off of your 60' is about .175 or so off of your ET. however, your hp is lacking so i would still say that .1-.12 can be knocked off of your ET for a .1 kocked off in the beginning. i say keep practicing and be one of the handful of 94-98 v6 5spd's to break into the 15's with just a couple of bolt ons.

your reaction times are great. go to 1/8th mi tracks where you can get in more run and don't worry about your ET, just practice launching. what psi was your tires? did you burn for a second? and did you roll through or go around the water box?

edit - 99+'s have just 5 or so more ft-lbs of tq, so our launches will be and feel about the same. with stock drivetrain and rubber and an almost stock car, i ran 2.2's. if you are able to duplicate or get even lower, 15's are in your future.

;)

Yeah, I avoided the waterbox as much as I could. And I lit up the tires for a few. I just wanted to see the smoke on one run, so I burned them for a little bit longer on a couple runs :)

I WILL break into the 15's eventually. Maybe next time I'll take out my spare tire so I can reserve a parking spot in the pit ;). It may lighten me up a little bit too :mrgreen:.

The left lane had no traction what so ever, my first 2 races. I liked the right lane :). I'll get my 60's down with practice. Maybe I'll go back next weekend :mrgreen:

Alright. Brent, I'll give you the links tomorrow morning after I upload them. There is 32 megs worth :shock:. I'll have to get rid of some of my webspace I'm using on my site so I can even upload them. I'll go ahead and do the 4 race videos. The Audio commentary is kinda boring. I'm gonna play with Adobe to see what I can come up with :)
