Chris whipped me bad and a GTP(?).

I might chance running mine one more to try to get it a bit lower before I do anything to the motor. I am afraid to go boom though. I think 15.0 is possible. I feel it. Shoot if I lose 1/2 the gas I might have it

I have a full weekend after Friday so I'll see if I can make it.

Friday Night - Tiffany won the jackpot race in her 94 mark 8, David Rodarmel got Second in the street stock race in his 94 Mark 8

Saturday I won the 1/4 Mile Street Stock race in my 95 Mark 8.

Ya'll should come out and run some of these races...lots of FN-10's, would like to see some MN-12's as well, they should be pretty darned competitive in these races!

That's what the WRX driver thought as we went thru the burnout box.
He got a nice nifty view of the sleek mark 8 tailights.

I guess I'm game, given I get this radiator in my car before then. So, which track will it be. I've been wanting to go out to Sealy since it reopened, but if everyone is wanting to go to Baytown...I may go there.
