Probably a little after 6, I might be taking a all backroad route from my work in Ashburnham, I have no idea how it will work out, but I'm sick of all of the traffic on 495 and 125.

I may be getting out of this trip a little early. If so, I might be getting there around 5. Here's hoping for some early runs in, before the lines get long.

+1 for cupcakes!!! Awesome! You did very well too! Brian pulled out a great run to finish too!

I managed a 12.9 1/4 mile off of a mellow launch and then couldn't get a launch to safe my life. If I could get any traction at the start, I'm sure this car would do low 12's. My Dunlops were not up to that task. If I do this more, I will get a couple wheels mounted up with DRs.

I tried 100 octane Sunoco and it allowed me to spin tires in any gear I wanted, if I punched it. That's a little weird if your going 100, shift to 4th and still spin tires.

Great times like always! Thanks Rachel for the cupcakes!! I managed a 13.65 @ 101.94! My best speed was 104.58 but with a 14.23.. strange. Also, I'm looking forward to pictures of us being posted that night.




Thats from the May 30th meet. Check it out :drinking:

I was glad I didn't have to take the cupcakes home! Yeah I ran a 13.7. But I had a good time, for my first time. I think I'm gonna stick with the auto-X though! lol, all the poor guys in trucks that my car beat....

Cool!! :headbang: I know that d00d.

I'll be uploading a vid of my best autox run from today shortly, if youtube doesn't regurgitate it.

Again, Rachel. Props to you for those yummy morsels.
