    well figure out if I'm there, when you come around the tower and pass where they have a water hose on the left (right where the new restroom trailer is), look right and that is usually where we set up so I can use my jack on pavement and we can put the camera inside your fox body for some runs. I might be up this week, need more practice running guys down. When I'm bracket racing I'm fine if I'm the rabbit, as soon as I have I guy next to me I act like it's my first pass down the strip ever. Thought I was done with test-n-tune when I got the car dialed in, but it seems I still a lot of work to get the driver dialed in. I will be counting off secs, giving lengths like pinks or something, before I break the beams to handicap whatever I line up against, so I can practice my focus and running my own race.

    anyone else going up weds if it doesn't rain, I doubt if i'll take a chance if it is threating, but 40% or less and I'm there.

    My bad, educate me, my car is a fox-f so??, so what are the years? I know a 96 is the newer style, I don't know stangs for crud, I just own one? LOL.

    fox = 82-93, lets see how long I can remember that, ...maybe a month or 2.
    fox-f = 94-04
    ?? = 05

    no in-car, but here is the link to my best run last week

    www.jandrmustangs.com/thirdpass.mov

    now there is a strong chance that work will interfere with my plans. This sucks. My girlfriend scheduled work around this. She's been bitten by the drag bug now, too. Tomorrow would be here first time on a drag strip.

    I couldn't get the movie to play with media player, only the sound, do you need real player or quicktime? :(

    the weather may interfere with everybodies plans tonight, my backup plan is to go up real early Saturday, Sunday is a no points big bracket bash which means it may take all day for 3 runs and elimination so since the weather is going to be sweet Saturday, I think we are there. I'll have the coffee and hardrolls if anyone stumbles by hungover.

    edit: who knows the weather will be better south and east and it looks like they totally botched the forecast. If I go it will rain, so If I do and it does I apologise in advance.

    We got rained on :notnice:
    I'm done racing the car til my turbo is done.

    unfortunately i will never see the 12 sec slip i wanted with nitrous. I am retiring the car from the track (for now) with a 13.07 @ 110 :damnit:.

    it's a quicktime movie

    got all loaded up and to the track just in time for them to close down :nonono:

    I was hoping the weather would hold off. It would have been sweet to get a bunch of runs in with practically nobody there. I even had my girl with me because she wanted to try. Oh well.

    I don't know if I will be able to get any more Wednesday nights in this year. I'm moving to Connecticut .

    god bless the svt exec who convinced ford to do the terminators. I went up saturday and waited through 3 track incidents. blown, completely shredded read end in an rx7. someone ran through the fence at the end and a blown motor. the snake was running strong, even in the heat 11.6's, 11.70 and the one run I messed up more than one shift 11.77. we were icing down, but it was 90, so in a last minute decision I hotlapped my 4th run at 3:27, well almost, i got the car to the line in 19min, 3:46 exactly, about what you have between late round elim's. I wanted to see and log how much time I would lose, when I know ahead I probably will get timing pulled. I only drained and refilled my HE reserviour with ice, toweled off my face and practically drove right up to the burnout box.

    going to the line my water was 180, instead of 172-178 it normally is with Tstat/fan changes. the IAT2 (downstream air charge temp) started at 128 instead of 100-110, so I only saw 22.5* timing at the top of third, instead of 23.8-24.0*.

    so what did it do, well for once I guess the driver couldn't even slow it down and it pulled my fat ass like the big Hoss it is to the fastest ET I have run in my very short ownership of this ford charity vehicle.

    WTF :hail2: :shrug: :eek: :eek:

    New Best ET 11.519/120.57 run at 4pm 90* 36%RH 30.23BP 1875 corrected elv

    so I guess I am the only reason this thing hasn't seen the bottom half of the 11's and I have no idea how much the heat slows it down.

    I will upload the movie, once I edit out my hooting and hollering..
