Not sure about that since it's specific. Shoot Jerry an email since he's organizing all of that and he can let you know what can be done.

drag radials not needed and I'd be down to see what a diesel can do off the line with that torque

9-5 is the usually the deal. No racing for me this time. I swore that I wouldn't until the meth injection is installed and I've just been looking at it on my workbench waiting for it to install itself.

Holy cow there were some fast cars at the track today and I wasn't one of them.

That was a lot of fun. I did learn my all season tires are not track worthy. Everytime I tried to brake boost I could not stop from spinning/fish tailing. Sadly my best time came when I just punched it w/no brake boost. I need to get some good sticky tires before I go back to the track.

I have some video I will try an upload later. Got a couple clips of zeel running.

I saw your runs and thought you did well considering the street tires + high torque = no traction situation. You can is stunning and you received many a compliment out of earshot.

Rich ran very well today. He was so close to breaking into the 11's and with some practice he will. I saw a best of 12.07 @ 117+. His 60' times just need to come down a bit. Having installed his mods, I'll throw in a shameless plug for myself.

I didn't run the M5 today since I just completed the meth injection system last night and need to dial it in before letting it rip. Next time!

Great turn out today. All the familiar faces and many new ones. Awesome mix of cars too. Anything from Porsche Panamera Turbo to a monsterous diesel truck running 10's. Man I love this shit!

Thanks for the compliment Clem. I hope to meet more of you guys next time. Talked to Rich who has a sweet looking and running car. Spoke to the guy in the black turbo charged e36 M3 a couple of times, his car ran strong although he said he couldn't hook up either. I did see your car, but nobody around. It looked damn fast just sitting there though.

I had the JBD at 100% so there was lots of out of control torque going at 2300 rpm. Got a little frustrating that I couldn't get it under control and put it to the ground. I was forced to really let off the accelerator just so my wheels would stop spinning, then mash it again. I even tried brake boosting to 1800 rpm and as soon as I applied throttle I would just spin out of control until I let off the accelertor. I need to get some tires like that guy in the F250 diesel, he just hooked up and blasted off, think he ran consistent low 11's!

Question, I was little confused when I went to line up for my first run, being a noob. When I first pulled up I was expecting someone was going to be up there to tell me where to pull up to or there would be a line or something, nothing and I wasn't sure at first where I was suppose to stop - I missed that class. I assumed you are suppose to pull up until the two top white lights come on, right?

Yes, look for the black box on the ground in between the lanes. Roll up slowly until the first yellow is lit. Then creep forward until the second yellow is lit. It's customary that the first guy pre-stages (lights the first yellow) and waits until the other lane has pre-staged. However, it doesn't always happen like this and at these track rentals it's often a comedy of errors.

The guy with the nasty fast white C6 Vette with the sharked out body kit drove through the light beams with his front wheels and staged with his back wheels. Seen it happen a hundred times.

Some guys drive all the way up to the tree and just sit and wait. After a while, someone goes up and waves him back.

I usually try to give newbies some pointers, but it's easy to forget when you roll up the line and you're nervous as hell. With a little practice it becomes natural and with drag radials, a lot more fun!!! The street tire lane sucks for all but the AWD guys.
