    Just a tip, When I run my sportsman pro's, I bypass the burnout box, do a dry burnout, not too long and spin them too the line. They hook great after that. I've tried other things things and that seems to be the best way I've found to get these tires to hook up!

    It's a shame. I only got two runs in... though both really bad.

    And I struggled all summer just to take one friday off.. I was able to get sept 16th off, but secret street didnt run due to rain.. so i fought and fought to get this friday off, and I was able to.. went down, got my two runs in.. and now have a credit which I won't be able to use next friday at all... what a waste.

    It was alright, got to see some racing, it looked like the autoX guys were having lots of fun once it got a little wet. But the best was the ricer in the red integra with the blue neon kit pulling 20 seconds.

    Get a speed pass next year. I got one at the beggining of the year and with that you can just pull up to the front of the line. No waiting for tech

    I tried to get one at the start of the season but they said they needed to tech my car 2x before giving me a speed pass. I guess if I had hauled my ass out there more I could have got one.

    Thanks for the tip! I would like to make it out more next summer now that my car is somewhat quick.

    I beat my PB by 1/2 second, which made me happy. Only got 2 runs in before it got rained off, which made me sad.

    Question: The rain check ticket we all got, is that only good until next week or could I save it over to next season?

    Yes, that was me you were a little over 1 second quicker. Nice run I got better on the next run but still got beat by an AMG. Not really a suprise.. LOL
    Second run I got 15.09 with a 2.122 60 footer. MPH was 91.05. Gonna need mods to compete at drag racing, but I'll try my luck at Auto-x next. I think my car is better suited to that.
