That's more around the figure I was thinking. I need a sponsor. Too bad I don't work for some company that has an interest in racing. Wait a minute...... checks profile .... I think I'm going to have to make some phone calls.

No 1000' is even 1001' would be odd

@frush Do you really think I'd have to spend $4000 to gain 1.5 to 2 seconds?

Hey Frush the Prelude didn't get a cash prize, he is not who I am aiming to beat.

bowersdaazian oh wow then. The neon is probably a built up drag car then. Ive never seen an n/a neon run that fast of a time. Must have the works done to his car.

By the tracks rules you are not suppose to have turbo or s/c or nitrous in this class. I talked to the guy on the phone and he said they check - bolt ons are ok.

jollyjohnj that's kind of what I thought

since this is a "no power adders" class on radials, what kind of bolt ons does that neon have to be running that quick?
03-11-2005 05:19 PM
bowersdaazian I'd say if you were a really good driver you might be able to edge out the prelude.
Ive never ran on a 1000 ft track before but those times seem pretty darn good for a neon, del sol and prelude. I'd bet you can get into the high 12's if you have some practice with launching.
