Drag Radial Race at TXR this Friday.

Should be a pretty good turn out this time. Travis F. is suppose to be there, Mike Kelley will be there with his new mustang he bought Saturday at the track, Clifton will have his back out after a few set backs this year. Boosted is tring to get out of going. I am sure Chip from Houston will be back and maybe he will bring a few others up with him. Plus all of your regulars will be there. I know some think this class is gay but to the ones that race it they have a good time.

Gay???? 1000+ HP cars going down the drag strip on a 275/60 drag radial...... yeah they sure are a bunch of peter puffers. It's funny how ignorant people are.

They say its gay cause of the 5.30 cap. There is only one car that I know of right now that can go faster than that right now this friday.

IMO more people would show up to a TRUE outlaw 275 race with no cap then with a cap. Its basically saying we dont give a shit what you run for an engine combo but if you run faster than a 5.30 you're done. Outlaw means run what you brung, and put it all down on X tire. Thats a true skills/tech class right there.

It's all about volume. There are alot more cars around that can run 5.30's (or close to that) on a 275 than cars that can run sub 5.30's.

Travis could run 4.9x on a 275 I am sure. So if the class was open with no cap and every month he runs a 4.9x-5.0x how many people will show up then. I am pretty sure not many would. I also like how most people think it is just so easy to run even a 5.30 on a 275 I guess as you say it don't take skills to even do that. I guess if I had skills I would run 5.0 on a 275.

LOL!! Its fucking hard for these cars to run 5.50s every pass let alone 5.30s.. The green turtle might turn on both kits after the race to see what it will do

Guess your not going to play around. Glad you bought the car so it will stay around here and support the class. You need to add it to your car list also.

Well Clifton said I could borrow his carb and go race on Friday... I'd switch and probably never go back to EFI so I'm not going to do it. LOL!

Clifton has TWO carbs. And LMAO. Fuck that. The carb will work with the injectors still stuck in there. Just plug the fuel rails!

The problem with your theory is that it hasnt happened yet...Not in this area...East coast..yea..

Everyone on paper using magazine mathematics could run 4's on 275's but in reality its not the case. its power management! Take the cap off invite the cars out and let the tires and track decide whos the fastest car. When the cars start winning consecutive races make the winner carry extra weight to slow him down and see how competitive the field gets. thats how you get a car count up IMO plus a bounty on the guy who continues to win.

well i was at the race last night and i could see travis car going way faster than what the cap is and there wasn't a great car count last night so i don't think opening it up will help its hard to go that fast on 275 and your right its all in power management on 275. But it was good racing for the cars that did show up

Thus the reason you are not a race promoter. In you own words, "it's not the case". We racers/car owners know it's about power management regardless the tire size. That's how we get done what we do, with power mangement. We all CAN make more power than the given tire can handle based on the rules inplace. The real deal is, this race is for the local 275 cars and and the few that will travel for $1000 to win. The best way to keep them coming back is with a cap. A run what-u-brung 275 w/no cap deal takes big purses to get the hardcore 275 cars to make the 1000 mile haul. You make the big purse happen and they will show up with no cap. Not trying to start a verbal battle with you, but this negative talk from you has gone on too long especially from somebody that doesn't, or hasn't ever had a dog in the fight. JMHO
