He just needs to learn to launch and bolt-ons on an SVT aren't really going to do crap for him in the 1/8th.

just wondering....
Drag racing started on 1/8th mile tracks(after the street of course). It wasn't until cars started getting much faster that they went to the 1/4.

Hey HaveBlue83, You ever coming through Monroe? I notice you travel around a bit just curious? PM me if you ever come through this part of the state, like to get in touch and check out the car now that you have the header wrap done. Sorry for the post jack,,,. Just thought about this when you mentioned quarter mile tracks, we have one here in town( not a great one) but at least we have one.

My best time so far is a 9.79 @ 73.43. I launched at 4 grand and spun a good bit in first. I got AEM CAI, STS, Borla, Tom's Tune. Also this was done at Darlington, SC a 1/4 mile track at their last night they were open in 2007, so it was like 45-50 outside.
