Was that against an MKI focus?

What has been done to the MKI if it is. I felt the newer 2012s have more torque than the MKIs.

Nice looking run.

Thanks, guys. It's my 05 D20 with exhaust, CAI, tune, lowering springs (the blue car in the left lane). I missed 3rd in that race and he was having traction issues.

It was a good race. Your right about the torque the newer cars have... My best time pre-boost was 17.1 with a 2.5 inch manderal exhaust, ebay header, no cats, EGR delete, custom cold air intake and Toms Tune. His car only had a K&N filter!

That run was the worst of the night for me. That one was a 17.4...I picked up a full second by learning how to drive

The rest of the night, me and David were pretty much even

I have to say I was really quite pleased with San Antonio Raceway for the most part. It was very clean, friendly and they kept the races moving fairly fast despite the long lines. The guys that are doing tech were so easy they pretty much just write your number on your car and let you through. Also this is the first time I've notice that a race track would let the drivers go down the strip with the windows down.

Even, huh? Lol. That track was pretty cool. We really should make this a monthly thing, or maybe quarterly. I am now at a crossroad with what to do with my car next. Turbo and done, or finish out the NA mod path (cams, head, header). It would be cool to turbo, but there is something about being near the top of the NA crowd that entices me. My wife actually said, "just turbo"!

Yeah doing this once a month or even quarter would be great. Now that it's getting colder that's even better.
