Default One pic wonder at the track

I went to the track on wednesday with another buddy from the regal board and this is a pic he snapped with his camera that would make my camera look like crap.

Track was a good time but the trip back was a hellish night ending up with a dying fuel pump and a piggyback ride to the buddy'* shop. enjoy the pic I would take more but we just got snow. It was amazing the response the car got including the tech official getting an education from the other tech inspector. I got the question
inspector 1"where is your jacket since that blower isnt a stock option"
me " it is a stock option"
inspector 1 "they didn't boost these from the factory"
me "go ask the other guy" ( he teched in amanda'* car the last time I was there so i knew he knew.
inspector 2 "ya this is a stock blown car"
inspector 1 "they didnt boost these though"
inspector2 "yes they did but this is not a stock setup lol" "its intercooled and has other things but since it is a factory boosted car you dont need a jacket but need a helmet"
me "got it"
inspector 2 "whats it run"
me "no clue it is the virgin run on this setup"
inspector 2 "well you need a different helmet if you run sub 13.99 so keep it above that and have a good night"
good time but not great times but was over 8k DA I will come back next year with a vengance and hopefully get a 13.9 at altitude under my belt

3* of KR, that'* around 10 horses or so. 2.4 60', I take it you spun a bit? Street tires? Did you use the water box on street tires? You want to drive around the box on street tires, the give a little dry spin to clean them. Ease in to it when you launch to push the tires right to the point of spinning.

I know but this was just a shakedown run and that is why I wasnt bragging about the times this was also on a crap tune i am aware of that. street tires and I did avoid the water box I was running at full street tire pressure but when I dropped it 3 psi it dropped the 60 to a 2.3 if I had a spare battery and a few more runs i am sure i could have dropped it even more. There was too many cars and i was lucky to get the 2 runs I got. Long story short it was more of a night to hang out and show off the mods but next year we will have it to 13s come hell or high water even if I have to spray a little
