    I really want to try this out at some point as I've never been but after having had my ass handed to me by an E63, while in my R8, I don't even want to bother anymore. lol

    Race city was a dump, now it is a world class landfill.

    I miss the dump.

    A "dragy" makes the process of testing your cars performance much more convenient then driving to Edmonton to run at the track.

    I still like going to the strip for an actual timeslip (even though Castrol has an app now and no longer prints slips lol)

    Also, always nice to not risk your license doing runs on public roads with a dragy I assume. Unless I just don't know of any secret spots around Edmonton/Calgary where you can do that without risking a cop pulling you over.

    I found a great spot north of the city that has worked well for me. Nobody around, out in the country, flat and almost no traffic. I'll head out, make a few solo hits and go home.

    Track can be fun though, especially when it's not crazy busy.

    Definitely an inconvenience traveling from YYC or anywhere else that's more than a hour drive.

    He ran a high 10 I believe with slipping transmission.

    Engine is built and makes over 800whp.

    He's a very well known local tuner.

    They're certainly big, but I don't know if they are the BEST I've tasted.

    I gotta get out there one of these days. I want to do a couple baseline runs with my Golf R. (word from peers is stock I should be in the ~12.9-13.0s range at Edmonton elevation) I'm feeling the urge to mod... don't know how much longer I can hold out. lol

    Dang, Firebird is still in Red Deer and I'm not out of class until 4pm. Would like to see what the POS would do in the 1/4 before slapping a converter and turbo on.
