Ya, I think it is, must have been a Thursday night. The track is open every Thursday night. A good time to test and tune.

They allow t-shirts to race?  I like the fly by look when you pass the other car, you even took your hand off the shifter Grin

  No guys ... No headliner or carpet in my car. Just shiny paint.   Less is more right?  Thats how I built it clean and simple.

  I keep saying one day I will put one in and carpet it but it never seems to happen. 

  As for the 3rd gear pull yeah theres lot's left in it I do the 1/4 in 3rd also.

  Thanks for the compliments guys.  But I must confess.....  The vega had me. He got loose and lifted and it scared me when he decelerated so abrubptly that's what caused the "look"  he almost crossed the center line on me.  BUT it was still a 7.77 that's not too shabby.

    Yes I preload trans and suspension with the parking brake, I tape the button down so it drops when I let go.

   The camera is a GOPRO available from AJ SIMS  at Low Bugget
