Well I had a blast and did'nt even run. Though I did get soaked when it rained while I was taking pics of the cars. And to think Raymond was on the other side of the parking lot sitting in his nice and dry car while I stood out in the rain lol. Well I did'nt get soaked till I tried making it across the parking lot to get to my car. I would have just called Raymond to come pick me up but I had his cell phone! lol. Even with the rain it was awesome. My only two regrets was not running my car that day and not doing this sooner. Drag racing is fun and all but I am tired of breaking parts. Plus this last alot longer than just a 1/4mi run. I do believe I found my new obsession lol.

Just ordered some parts last night getting the ole fofo ready for the next auto-x. Got some rotors and brake lines. I'm thinking time to paint the brakes . I'm just wondering where I can find some brake shoes for the rears surely someone makes a some what decent brake shoe . Don't know what I want to run for a pad up front . I also ordered a volt meter to fill the open pod on my gauge pillar. I was praying for a boost gauge but it was never meant to be . But thats ok cause now I'm looking at my car in a different light and direction that is more suiting to its age/mileage. That integra you see in the pics had I think 168,000mi on it maybe Raymond would remember.

funny thing is I told my wife I was going to order some parts she said don't go over board. 261.00 is'nt bad huh? lol

I splurged and bought some SS brake and another gauge she does'nt know yet lol. I could have easily went over 300 bucks. I figure a couple hundred here and there can fly under the radar lol. Instead of having a gigantic bill of a 1000 lol

hey guys remember me lol! its been a while since i got on, very busy at work. i wouldn't mine at all to join in next auto x. so ray what do i need, to race i know helmet but any thing else. i see so many mustangs in the pictures and can stop laughing because with experience of driving mustangs i know they suck so bad at turning, but blast straight. they are very heavy cars. i would probably watch first time then go for it the next, just to watch every one and check out track. i would hate to drive on a track i don't know.

The track changes every time ...

Before you race, you do a walk through to learn the track right after the drivers meeting.

Car just needs to be cleaned out from debris ... and yes a helmet. You also need to register for the run ... let me know if you want more info.

And welcome back to the forums ... lol

They were behind schedule when we were there. I'm kinda glad in a way that they change the track layout everytime. It keeps everybody on there toes. I still need to get a helmet also. You should get a helmet even if you are'nt racing that way you can ride with people. Thats what I'm thinking I'm going to do. I'll ride with a whole bunch of people just for the simple fact that it is FUN and I would be able to learn the track layout better.
