This was it before I re-did the motor (new block, new crank, external oiling circuit, so it should sound the same.
Thanks! That brought a smile to my face . I watched that at work with my headphones on, volume up.
Did you win that heat? Couldn't see the times. It looks like you got pretty good traction.
It wasn't really a race, but at 12.99 I crossed the finish line first and got the "win" light. As far as traction goes it REALLY sucked that night. I had a 2.6 second 60 foot when I should be somewhere around 1.8 seconds.
Love the sounds!
Remind me to NOT pull next to you at a stop light.
You know if you were next to him in your project car at a lonely vacant light somewhere you be tempted to show who has the bigger something oe another
At this stage of my life I think I have all the revoked licenses, canceled insurance, assigned risk insurance and sirens in my ears one person needs. Street racing used to be fun, but it got old real quick and I can sure get a lot more racing done at the track than on the street. I know how fast my car can go and I really do not have anything to prove to anyone anymore.
Greg is a grown up. Whew, that's a sigh of relief !!
Richard is probably right though in that I'd likely give way to a "brief" contest (some guys never grow up ). But Greg is on the money that the place for speed contests is at the track. Until recently the local drag strip was about a 20 minutes drive from my house; but it has relocated to the other side of the mountain range but is still a reasonable distance. Drive time, about 45 minutes.
(just had to replay that video two more times!)
Im in pasadena texas and its not easy to actually find a spot to " test your car against some one" Its kinda surrounded by lots of cities. I havent had a race for many years. I do like to test my car once in a while and even thats on hold till the dang car is back to running. Its kinda on the back burner for a little while.
There is a drag strip in baytown and I hope to get there someday.
We are lucky here in San Antonio in that our local strip is still open. It was closed for nearly 18 months a while back. Not a lot of money to be made at a smaller strip but for now it is open
I’m about 45 minutes from my local 1/8th mile. Very few rules and lots of test and tune. I didn’t make it with my car this year.
