        Bet it gives the AC a run for the money.

              Well sorta had a good day at the drags yesterday. Got thrown out after 2 runs. Now giving some thought on getting the 92 wagon (Buick GN motor also) into the high 11s.

                  I'm guessing the sorta good =

                  sorta = getting tossed
                  good= NINE's.

                  I think Good won on that exchange. Excellent!

                    I get the cool factor about getting tossed off the track but put yourself in the track operator's position. It's difficult to get insurance to run any sort of racing facility and one of the stipulations from the insurance company is that certain safety regulations are in place and enforced. So running outside of those regulations puts not only the track operator in jeopardy but you might also cost all the competitors a place to race because no insurance = no track. We came close to that at ECTA last year.

                    I realize you can run too quick for your safety gear by accident (it was faster/quicker than you thought) but PLEASE don't do it on purpose.

                    Sorry to be the safety Grandma.....

                        my very first time at a track over did it.
                        no big deal.

                        I never did go back realizing my own demands and facts of fast...
                        needed a lot more surrounding it.

                        it happens. People are real.

                          well we always notice fast cars that don't have squat an get away with it. Natural for us to "look". Lots of illegal cars out there. Excuses like mine is a street car and we only race twice a year is BS..

                              Pretty much all my pics were posted to my desktop and then directly to BS thru the process in the sticky ((click on the icon that looks like a suitcase with a fish hook in it) and follow usual procedures). Works well for me.

                              I just store them in my computer in appropriate file folders.
