You have to go to a 1/4 mile track. I go to Norwalk Raceway Park since its only 20 minutes away...

you also could have a G-tech, although not as reliable as a track slip.

Most tracks have a day set aside for 'street legal' races, up here its every Friday and only costs $10 an evening.

On this note, does someone around here have (or is there an old post with) typical performance times on our stock Bonnys? I'd like to know what my '98 SLE can do, but there'* no track close to me.

The two closest to me charge $35-50 for Test-n-tune. They do have Street legal nites though that they only charge $20 for, but at the one that is 1/4 mile there are typically so many racers that in the 4 hours they are open you can only get 1 or 2 runs in.
The other track is only a 1/8 mile so it'* not as fun, but then you get alot of track time in.
