Are some of you guys/gals running yet?
How close are you to getting your rides ready?
The Chevelle only needed (much needed) front spring replacements


Hopefully either this early in season or late fall she might hit 10's

Keeping my fingers and toes crossed............ gonna be hard to type, and walk...........

perfect lights and dead on dial-ins i hope you all have.

New England Dragway opens April 1st. Should be ready. All we did was install a roll bar and general maintainance. Maybe a few other things I've forgotten.

Hope we actually have racing in April this year. Not much snow this year just have to see how much of those April showers we get.

I use Smoke's tree 10 times a day. Like to think I'm getting consistant in the .520-.530 area. If I try to get it closer I get a lot of .493 - .499's.

Looking forward to see if it helps in the real world. Looking forward to see friends at the drags. Mcas sold his Camaro so he won't be running but he is going to wrench for his dad and his huge yellow 60 Chevy. That's going to be awesome.

Do you run at Lebanon Valley?

Gators went well today, despite paranoia about new tires. Those with a good clutch/chassis set-up did well.

I raced at Bradenton last weekend for the NMRA season opener. The track was great got some great 60' times but the wind was blowing in your face most of the weekend so mph was down. That was the first time I raced at bradenton nice track.

The track opens in two weeks and I'm not ready.

My goal for this year is to get the 2002 Z28 into the 11's this year. I have a long way to go best time so far was 13.16, so I need to drop 1.17 seconds this year. Burn Out

Our track opens on the Fool's day. I've put a huge effort into the Camaro this year, to the tune of changing the oil and tranny fluid. I might even spring for spark plugs if my refund comes in time.

Depends on the type of mule used by the postal carrier.
