The ROCK

These are two of my best passes out of 8. My first time on a 1/4-mile track. I think my bird impressed the man who built it. He said I am at the limit on my tires, so bigger, wider ones will be in my future. Looking forward to testing her again after Thanksgiving!

Good stuff Darren! I was going to go to the track yesterday but my passanger rear brakes is dragging after putting in new pads and I need to find out why before taking it to the track to get a baseline.

Good Pass!

Yeah, its looking like traction is certainly an issue.

Way to stay at it. Those are still good numbers and you should be proud of the results.

You're welcome for the pix and videos. It's something I enjoy doing.

The 60ft will be more consistent and a smaller burnout will do with these, I'm sure the tires are capable of 1.5x 60fts with out much trouble

Not saying u will be that fast bust consistent 1.7x will do
