Default Was at the strip on wednesday night...

and the turnout was insane... almost 300 street cars!!! no bonnevilles, three gtp'* that were running mid/high 14'*, a V8 SHO that ran 16.6, countless mustangs, countless f-bodys, a few sub 12 second 03 cobras, an r32 vw running 15.3'*, a stock EVO running 13.7, an srt4 running 13.8s with a great driver and only a bov, two 11 sec GN'*, like 50 dsm'*(the event was sponsored by a dsm tuner, go figure), and 1 particular dsm that had an 8 second run in it but the track was very wet so he ran a 9.02 at 130something i think.... it was awsome though, just thought i'd share!!!

So when are you going to run the SSEi? I'll be taking the Addiction out for her maiden voyage next Friday night, but sadly it will only be at the 1/8 track.

Jason, Seth, John (Mos), Gordy, Harrofreak, and anyone else from Minnesota -want to meet at Grove Creek? It'* only $20 to race, or like $5-10 to watch.

I doubt I will take the Aurora to the track. 1/4 miles are not my tea of choice, but I took down some impressive supercharged vehicles and that was good enough for me
