live your life 1/4 mile at a time......lol


Its a lot of fun regardless of what your driving. One time I was at Sonoma raceway and this fool had his damn camper!! he took like 30 seconds to do his 1/4. so don't be embarassed just have a good time...When i went with my old SPI a long time ago...I ran 18.022 as my best time and still had a blast. And the best part is you'll probably end up going against something that will tear u a new one.

Hit Cayuga last year ('05 ATX, exhaust, SRI and had just reprogrammed the ECU) only car I managed to throttle?

A Civic DX that was apparently weighted down with stickers :D

And the best part? I'd left my disabled parking permit in the window and the Honda driver saw it!

I think he crawled under a rock and cried himself to sleep that night.

i went out last year in my stock spi sedan (except for mods in sig.) and i had a blast. I ended up beating 2 friends, ran mid 17's and it only cost me $20.

I placed 2nd in the Arizona 4 Cylinder challenge, also a bracket event. I went up against 11-12 second cars and about 9 of them before I broke out in the last round.

I was running high to mid 15's LOL

They have just as much place as any other car, truck, bike, or quad has. Especially if your going to start modding it.
