I had a busy day Paul. Saw a lot of folks haven't seen since the fall, lots of new faces, and even spent some time with my mother who came to see me race for the first time ever. Then I had to skip out around 2:30 to do some other things. Great day though...just busy.

John

just wondering the DRs u posted for sale....will they fit mine w/o modification (trimming the quarter)...id need 15 inch rims to run them but yea.

any advice aside form leaving sooner at the light to make it quicker? higher launch/roll off rpm? (revved to 3K and eased it off the line til i was moving enoguh that i could stomp the gas and bang gears)

The tires I posted are full slicks (not dr's) and too big for your gearing/power. And as far as launching, go on the last yellow, ALWAYS!!! W/ street tires, coming out hard is nearly impossible. Tire spin is inevitable. Stay outa the water box and don't worry about doing a burnout.

Yeah....bernie's right about shaving you're trap time. When I had put on a set of slicks on my car...I shaved a .5 sec off my time. That was an exciting day for me that's for sure.

John, didn't you say you went tubular up front? What did you go with and how do you like the quality of the ride?

I went with the BMR tubular k-member (couldn't afford the a-arms yet but I'll get them soon), and the BMR radiator support/swaybar delete bracket. The k-member comes with a poly motor mount.

It's a bit rough but nothing I can't live with. The rear view mirror vibrates enough that everything is blurry except when cruising in 5th, and I had to play around with the rear shocks on the ride home 3 times to find an acceptable ride.

I think it improved high rpm shifts as well (the motor mount on the k) as I didn't have trouble getting into gear--all gear misses were my own fault.

All in all I'm happy with it. I was a bit worried the ride would be harsh but it's very livable. Adjustable front struts would certainly complement the rears for some smoother driving when not at the track....

John

What light you leave on won't affect your et at all but it does have a major impact on who gets to the finish line first. The reaction time is simply the time it takes your car to break the beam that starts the et clocks from the time the green light comes on.

A good reaction time will get you out ahead of an opponent with a slower reaction time ( holeshot) and you could still potentially beat that oppenent even if he or she has a faster ET.
