Dinwiddie has gone back to NHRA yet again, which will pretty much kill any chance that I'll go there next year with this new to me car! IHRA was bad enough but NHRA is a killer for me especially with their asinine physical with the license requirement. I'd be a damn fool to spend all the money on their requirements when I have at least 4 tracks closer to me that pay more money for a win. Only reason I was really thinking about going there anyway was to be able to make a few quarter mile passes with this dragster. I guess I'll just never know what it will do. Just as well I guess as I'd probably have to change the rear gear to do that anyway. :-({|=

A couple of tracks here don't look at anything including belts. My belts will go out of date next september after being used in oct and nov. of last year a few times, and none this year, and the car sits in my heated/airconditioned basment garage.

You can get a pretty good idea of the 1/4 mile et from 1/8 mile et. It works out to be about 1.56-.1.58 times the 1/8 mile et. But I know it's not like having the ticket.
