Rogue it'* good i'm probably not going to bfest, otherwise i might be able to show you up on your own car lol...

I think the engines are farther forward on the 00'* from the 92-99'*, might be hurting you.

I'd buy the engine position thought. I know the firewall is much farther forward with respect to the strut towers, so it makes sense. Still good times especially given the conditions. Need to buy some PRIVATE track time

So what was the deal with the SRT10? The guy not know how to drive??? And good work on the recruiting!!

After discussing it some last night with the guy I went with I guess I remembered it wrong. He says it ran a 13.5 still not fast in my book for a viper engine but it is a truck I guess.

NO!!!! I was messing around with the new tube and bending it and just finished that up and started raining.

Yesterday I somehow tore the tranny tube gasket and part fell in the transmission I called Scott and he gave me some advice but wanted Jeff'* word since he it the tranny man.
Big Jeff said it would be fine, don't worry about it at all, never make it past the filter, don't even have to drop the pan if I don't want too, still was planing on doing it though after the tube today but again rain, when It lightens up still planning on dropping the pan and going hunting

Wouldnt an A/C still condense and drip water on the staging lane? That is the reason we can run our A/C in the stageing area.

You saying you could launch my car better, or that your car would have a better 1/4. Little confused here. My best launch is a 2.16 on street tires.

Norwalk in up near Sandusky. National Trails is east of columbus by about 15 min. Kil Kare is in Xenia east of 675 by about 10 miles or so. Trebian road to dayton-xenia road.
