Well well Ray it comes down to this lol My best run ever was a 15.7 with consitient high 15's. I have yet to be back at the track since the cam gears were dyno tuned. Well I did go but I was making so much power that the diff could'nt take I'm sure I can break into the 15'6's lol . Has for those who never been to the track I will give ya'll a crash course about the In's and Out's. What to do when we get there. We have to have our cars checked in at the tech and a few other things like what to do and who to listen to at the track (the people running the show wear regular clothes) Its easy but a alittle uneasy if you never been there. People are very glad to help so don't feel stupid if you don't know anything the people there are just want us and them to have fun and be safe.


*Important* Turn your A/C off before you get to the track!!! If your dripping water then they won't let you run. Also if your car pours oil out you can't run any leaky fluids comming from your car are bad for the track. For example say you start spraying tranny fluid on the track thats bad. I know from experince ok ok it was me who sprayed the track down but they cleaned it up for me. Has for leaky fluids if you drip a little puddle over night I'm sure you'll be fine. Foci though are pretty good at not leaking oil and other fluids. So I doubt we will worry about that.

Raymond I'll wake up for sure on this though the expresso could help me on my reaction times or could help you and make me too jumpy lol. I work on Sat. so I will be not has fresh has I could be but I would'nt miss this for the world!!

Like I said Paul when you get off ... or in the morning or Early afternoon ... you can crash at my house before we head out. Just an idea man. But yeah ... YOU BETTER COME!!! It was more or less your idea. I just pushed it.

Well I will no longer be able to make it. I have to go to the doctors office to get some work done on my back. He moved my appointment to Monday. Was kinda looking forward to it cause I've never been to Houston. Oh well maybe next time.

Well Raymond I decided on NOT washing my car lol. It seems maybe thats what made me late instead of just going to bed when I got home. Looks like we will have great track weather the only thing I see being bad is the traction. Tires don't like to hook when there cold.

*ALSO IMPORTANT* I know its going to be cold so everybody will probably be wearing pants anyways. But in order for you to run your car down the track you must be wearing pants. Just thought I throw that out there. So Raymond now you can wear pants lol instead of wearing them in the texas heat lol

Also on a bad note my car is throwing check engine lights like crazy but I'll still run it anyways. Maybe ya'll can help me figure out why I keep throwing lean codes?

It does seem like my dream of having some foci at the track with me has come true I really can't wait. I kinda hope my patient does'nt show up tonight so I can go home and sleep so time will go by faster.

Also is there a list of all who's going? I'll be there with bells on and a exspresso in my hand lol.
