My runs annoyed me. Going from utterly horrible to mediocrity made me was to scream, then jump the neon drivers and beat them senseless. About 3 grand will set me up for next year I think. Even with some crappy runs I had a great time. Nothing like rosting those tires ( bald again, by the way...lol).

For a stock car I tihnk your best of mid 15 is good. Practice your launches and get the exhaust fixed and youll be golden Remember rated 1/4 for a stock 00 is 15.8 so you beat that with some minor problems meaning when those are fixed and some minor mods youll be singing the 14 second tune with the best of them.

Great to meet you last week, thanks for participating

Don't worry about it, I don't think that'* bad at all for basicly a stock ssei. I never ran mine stock but with a 3.4 and my thrasher box and stock everything else I was at 14.9 so get that pulley on there.

Oh and get some new tires, those things were seriously bald.
