Capital Raceway test'n tune on Friday evening

Friday test'n tune @ Capital Raceway. http://www.capitolraceway.com/

I'm thinking about testing the tune on the drag strip. I would like to see if I could hit the target of 103 mph trap speed.

I plan to be there around 4.30pm and do a couple of quick runs. I'm wondering if anyone's interested to join the fun.

I'm not sure. I haven't been there for a while. It's closer to me than the MIR, good for a short trip like this.

At least I would be able to make couple test/log runs "legally".

Bushido and I were talking about finding a runway to do something like this. I can't do this weekend but I'm game for another.

That'll be fun.

There is a good japanese restaurant in the area. We can make it a dinner/test'n tune get together.

If there is rain this Friday, I might try it again on the following Friday 5/20.

This Friday at Capital Raceway,

"Friday May 13, Test & Tune, Grudge No Time Fest, Bring Your Buddy And Beat Him Up On The Track.
NO BOARDS SHOWING , NO ANNOUNCING!!!!!"

I guess I will change the date to next Friday, 5/20 instead.

I might not be able for the 20th. My folks are in town and the idea of me going very fast is not something they enjoy.

There is the whole argument that one must know the limits of ones car to be a truly safe driver... or something


Maxi...Im pretty sure the way it read you still get your time, its just not displayed. In my experience thats the reason you do test and tune, you know your times but others attending cant see it for privacy reasons. You dont want the word to get out when it comes to money races. nahmeeeen?

If that is the case, it's a go. I only need time slips to compare with datalogs.

If your ET is faster than 13.99 sec (which most of us do), you'll need a helmet.
