focusmaniaczx3 im way in the danger zone as far as my 60ft times go. once you start getting lower than 1.9 60ft times you start breaking junk regularly. i havent broken anything really expensive yet but i know its coming. please be careful lol

I know, I got these NEO GENs that are pretty good, but witht the open diff I still sucked. Now I got LSD installed and shaved about a .5 off my 60ft still spinning off the line. I hope that with the better tires I can get off the line much quicker, or like I said before, crack, snapple or pop... we will see.. lol

Yep, everybody was comlplaining about it because there should be no different for the rest of the days that you dont have to pay extra. Saturday's for some reason you have to pay 5 bucks for slips must of us racing didnt pay. I wish I had paid to see just one slip..
