Werd... Nationals is a whole different animal. I was happy to be in the top half my first time out. Second year I screwed myself out of 3rd and ended up in 6th. Still a trophy in ESP though but left with less enthusiasim even with the hardware.

Indeed!
I hope next year to move up a lot! day 1 this year included runs 4-6 that I had ever done in the grape (which is unlike anything I'd raced up to that point)

by day 2 of nationals I was 2 seconds closer to the "fast guys" than I was the day before.

hopefully next season taking a car I've driven non stop for 2 years will help me have a better shot at national hardware.

Sean's neon behaves more like a RWD car than most RWD cars I've driven.
Is why I want the G with the intake spacer and tune on slicks. All the same grin as the 330 with the extra power/tq. Should be super fun when that eventually goes down.
