So Last night was awesome. It was my first time at the track. I didn't pull the time I wanted, But Im sure its got to do with being a newbie. I walked away with a 10.375@69.030MPH. I hope to go back soon. Todd's car was like a rocket. On are last passes I ran him. LOL I got smoked. Keith's Car was turning nice times too. Like I said "I bet I'm the slowest"! But anyways Awesome time. And Definitely can't wait to go again.
Thanks Guys;)

:mad:...My '89 overheated on the way down there so I was stranded at the exit to the track for about 30 minutes waiting for it to cool off enough to pour some water back into it, thanks James for hanging with me. I filled it up and made it to the track about 5 miles away. I let it cool off for another 45 minutes or so, put on the slicks and said the hell with it, if it blows AAA will tow it home. My 1st run was a 8.775 at 78.121 mph and a 1.897 60'. I had to let it sit for another 30-40 minutes because of the overflow tank wanting to puke out some water. My 2nd and last run wasn't as good, I tried powerbraking it at the line instead of just stomping it from idle like I did on the 1st run plus I screwed up shifting ( auto...:o ) and ran a 8.831 at 79.148 mph and a 1.950 60'. I then let the car cool down for a little over an hour to get ready for the ride back, hopefully all the way back. I stayed at 55 mph for the ride home and made it so unless I can find what the problem is and fix it for cheap cheap, this car will have to be sold or parted out to make some money.........oh well.......if this happens it's about time to thin the herd anyway.............:D
