well went to last race last weekend, finally got this thing in the 12's, high 12's but some 12's   went 13.01 off trailer, then a 12.87, 12.84 and a 12.81  first round went against a 9.33 dial in 59 ford ranchero, beat him on tree, then second round went against a 8.55 68 cam he cut a .021 light and ran 8.55 on a 8.55  didnt have a chance but it was lots of fun, next night a lil hotter went 12.97,12.91 and 13.00  went to round two but lost at finish, miss judged oh well, it was a good yr, one more yr with this worn out motor and will have a lil faster ride in 2010   next yr will try to learn on how to go more rounds the fun thing I got that down ;-)

you have come a long ways with it. \:D/  \:D/  You have a short season out there. I'm sure you will come up with some little tweaks in the off season. =;

Not bad.  =D> That is a very cool looking track.  I would agree on the rear straps, they should be a x

X2 on what Jerry said. I noticed you park it to one side also. If the tail were to bounce to the left for whatever reason, the whole car could come loose, at least of they were "x"ed it would be tight to both corners.
