  • Drag week total miles

    I drove 2162 miles round trip. Great way to break in a fresh engine. $4 plus gas did not help the old budget this year I felt for the guys who had 12-24 hrs + to get home. Hope everybody made it back.
    used to be purplecobra, now just myself. I still drive a mustang!!!!!

    I just got home, and I haven't calibrated my odometer to the GPS readings(of the first 1200 miles) yet, but using last years correction factor I drove 4,278 miles driveway to driveway over 9 days. 22.5 hours home from Tulsa.

        F'n christ it is. Sucks to go all that way, all week, and not get to sit with all the people at the end saying "we made it". Seems the only good Saturday did was give Larson the win and eff up Mike Roy's weekly average with his worse run of the week.

          we went just over 2200 playing spectator - the casinos everywhere were not budget friendly. Next year, I'll bring a car... may be cheaper. (insert straight face here)

          The humidity had to be playing hell with tunes and I'm not touching the Larson comment - still a little bitter tasting. Tuning 2800-3000 hp in that slop would not be an inviable position.

          Did TSB get home okay?

          The crazies from Amarillo hacked a broken axle stub off the shop truck and drove it home with the spool turning one side I think!

                We put about 1940 miles on the truck, and I may have hurt the trans in the hills.... no atf temp gauge.
                There's always something new to learn.

                      I was 1540 all in. I need to pay my dues next year and go on a DW that doesn't start 12 miles from my house.

                              4080 miles. From jersey to Oklahoma and back was 2680 and we drove those two trips straight thru. About 22.5 hours each way but well worth it! See ya in 2013.
