It's the time of year to crush the infidels again.



If it ain't broke, just keep messing with it and it will be soon enough.....

Great event! I had a blast. And finally got to put a face with some names.

Anybody know the final tally? The Fords got rocked I'm sad to say.

Biggest lesson from this year: I won't be setting any world records on radials. These tires are hard to figure out!!!

90 GT - Bolt ons - 8.17 @ 173.XX. Original garage queen. '05 FFW Ennis True Street Winner
94 Supra - Big time garage queen
79 FJ40 Landcruiser - 4" lift, LT-1 w/4L60e, and 35's!
'98 Shadow ACE Tourer - 300 miles!
'99 Baja H2X - Water Toy
07 GT500 - Vista Blue w/ White stripes
'93 Cobra - Black on Black, 23K miles!

The beat down was bad, not sure if they got the matchup's wrong or the Buick's were sandbagging but most of the pass's were won by buick's or gm's that were a second faster then they ford beside them. Oh well still had a great time, almost got the car into the 9's and no issues so all in all a great day..

Boost Addict your car was awesome, that thing was crazy in the radials..

They didnt sandbag. Its all a numbers game. The buick side had more cars, thus they got to drop their slowest cars. Example, buick has 90 cars, ford has 75. Buick drops there 15 slowest cars to make an even 75 races.

If we could get more ford cars to show up it will even it out.

He is right they did tech everyone but some harder than others, I had to open my hood but others pulled up that were faster than me and did not even ask about anything.

Did anybody see the kickass Mercury Mountaineer bust off a [email protected] mph?!?!

lol

Sadly, that was me. haha

They will post a pdf of the event showing qualifying times and final race times so everybody can see just who bagged.

I'd like to see them implement a 0.5 sec breakout just to keep everybody honest. If nothing, it would let the fans know that the racers are not bagging.

As for tech, they popped the hood on the Mountaineer (my wife's daily driver) and gave it a good once over.... haha

If it ain't broke, just keep messing with it and it will be soon enough.....

Thanks for posting, that makes me feel alot better seeing the Buick's were running their numbers, they were just faster than us. I do wish the computer would have recorded the time on a red light. This was first time out with car and new convertor and we were hoping for 9's and I really think the last pass I got it but oh well, guess I should not have deep staged. I guess we will have to do it next weekend then.
