Randylawl @ MIR 03-09-14 - First Time

I finally got my car to the track this weekend. I'm linking a video of my best run.

There's definitely room for improvement, as I had a wheel bearing go out on the way there causing the brake drum to drag violently each run lol. With that fixed and better tires I'm hoping to get at least a 15.99.
Let me know what ya'll think.

you ran your car (let alone drive it there) with a wheel bearing failure eminent? good grief. damn dangerous. i recall econorocketzx3 (iirc) losing one on way back from fun ford weekend and it caused him to spin in middle of highway. please get that fixed!! good luck, i hope to hit the fastest track in md this yr.

It was a scary trip home, wasn't bad till a couple miles from the track, fixed it though and she'll be good to go with some new shoes this weekend. Your cams did the trick man, she runs great!

Yessir it's been tuned now, I need to get a new knock sensor and some different plugs but it's running great now. I can't wait to hit the track again.
