Default i have reached an epiphany - IDD classes just don't matter!

Here we all sit in the largest 3800 powered cars made by Pontiac trying to run against cars that have several advantages - weight and distribution of that weight, etc. - why should any of us care what class we run at IDD or any race for that matter?

i bring this up because i have been putting off installing my SS IC because it would move me up to another class. But as i have thought more on it, what class i run really doesn't matter because there will always be SEVERAL GTPs running faster than me.

until they have a Bonneville specific class--

which will never happen because:
1. there are not enough of us running - look how long it took to fill up the 1/4 mile registry board
2. we can't even muster a large Bonneville meeting - how many people showed up to Bonnefest? i am guessing under 15. Of course i couldn't make it either so, i guess i should drop that one eh?

-- i can mod to my whims

i guess wha i am saying is, i will be installing a SS IC real soon.

I intend on participating in Bonneville events as soon as my car is respectable.

I live all the way on the westcoast and making a long trip to show off my slow Bonneville isnt worth it for me or you guys. When I go I want to represent Bonneville fans well by having a respectably quick car. I know speed isnt everything but its fun.

By next year I plan on having my car supercharged with a beefier transmission. Maybe even more. NOS is getting tempting since its cheap and that supercharger aint out yet.

They have bracket racing at IDD, don't they? Bracket racing removes any advantage in speed... just hit your dial-in and you're golden.

i still tend to red light when i get excited! Ask Rogue.

and i enjoyed the bracket racing this spring.

it'* just a fact that our Bonne'* will not compete until the highest levels with the GPs and i don't plan on going that far, so ...

i mod, i mod, because the Gp has a lighter "Bod"
