TEST N TUNE at Zmax dragway May 28th

i finally got ahold of someone at the track for some info on when they are going to start having test and tune days at the track open to whoever wants on the track. they have having one on thursday may 28th and im going. its $30 for racer registration and $10 for spectators which is kinda steep in my opinion but its a 4 lane drag strip and the closest 1/4 mile around. they open the gates at 3pm and the cars will start run between 5pm and 9pm. but 4 hours on that track would be equal to 8 hours anywhere else because you can get twice as many cars down the track at a time. let me know if any1 else is interested in coming. ive never had my car on the 1/4 mile before so this is going to be a learning experience for me.

Good luck. You should be able to do low 15s to high 14s NA. When you are spraying then it should be low 14s.

The track is nice. I was lucky enough to be one of the first ones to run on that track when they opened it to the public last year. Did I mention that it was for free? Anyway, just relax and enjoy. Do not money shift.

im expecting low 13s on the spray. im just hoping i can get my head worked over by then. sounds like i have a slightly ticking valve so im getting a complete 3 angle valve job with P&P, over sized valves, the whole nine yards. if i dont have my head back by then ill just run n/a or use a really small shot

Good luck. Hopefully it won't be too hot that day. My buddy's 04 mustang gt + 150 shot of n20 only did 13.7. The weather really affects the performance of any car specially on the strip. I have seen MS3s only running high 14s due to hot weather. But then again you may be a better driver than them. BTW, I may show up there on the 28th but not 100% yet. I am still waiting for Mike of Hilbish to finish up the head for my car. Who is going to do a port and polish job on that cylinder head you are talking about?

I know this is an old thread, but do you know if they have another test-n-tune night this year?
