    The Performance Plus event in Saskatoon and the JB's Shootouts in Edmonton would be excellent venues for a real 10.5 King of the Hill :nice:

    I would be interested in providing a trophy for the person with the fastest 28/10 tire mustang in all of westen canada for 2004. This is what I am thinking for rules, must have stock style suspension, 3000lbs minimum weight, times must be verified with scanned time slip or video and one other person.

    I just started up a business called trophys and things up here in Fort McMurray and I love mustangs. I went low 10's in my old GT about 4 yrs ago when i lived on the coast.

    Sounds like a cool idea.

    I've got a lot of email showing intrest. So I guess I will go ahead with this, with the rules previously posted. As for Alberta guys getting a time break, I dont think so because it would cause too much contraversy.

    Why not correct all times to sea level :shrug: . Seems like the only fair thing to do.

    Because the correction factors are only estimates not concrete figures. Plus how do we know what the true corrected elevation is when a person makes a pass? I remember years ago at mission when the corrected elevation was 3000 feet above sea level.

    NHRA, IHRA and any other major racing orginizations do not recongize corrected times for records so neither will I. This is suppose to just be for fun anyway to get a little riverly going and push guys to go faster, so why complain already? especially consitering your not even a contender by the looks of it. Ive gotten a lot of emails from atleast 10-15 guys with cars who want to be the 28/10 king of Canada West and none of them complained or even mentioned the elevation diffrence, its part of the game.

    NO EXCUSES JUST RUN WHATCHA BRUNG AND LETS SEE WHO IS KING :nice:

    Well I went 10.01 @136mph today in Edmonton.
    I'll scan the timeslip and post it here later to verify.

    Kind of tough to compete with the cars that run at Mission.
    I've been racing all over (Calgary, Edmonton, Medicine Hat, Saskatoon) I haven't gotten a decent track yet with some good air. Fastest was 10.003@137 with a 1.50 60 foot time. Not that I would come close to a 9.34@150mph.

    I'll see what Saskatoon has in store for me this weekend at their street car shootout. If I make it. Tranny is getting gone through right now.
