Smile Drag Lessons 101.

Lesson #1. Do not worry what is going on in the lane next to you. If they break, you still run, just solo. KEEP YOUR EYES ON THE LIGHTS and not the car smoking in your mirror!!!!!!

Lesson #2. Make sure you put it in the gear before releasing the clutch. Will hurt your ET and MPH severely!

Lesson #3. Spank the VW GOLF next to you.

Lesson #4. Have fun with a friend.

These clips were taken from my first time racing at the strip. Figured I would poke fun at myself. Feel free to be mean. Just don't make me cry .

my 14.663 @ 98.3mph to his 15.182 @ 93.20mph. Both 60fts were 2.4xx.

It was a lot of fun. Got in 5 runs before i blew the vacuum fitting off the manifold. After that I didnt want it to happen again so I stopped running.

got to heat up the tires a little more. Also, when the track is cold that happens. I bet as the day went on chip it got a little easier. Also, the gas pedal is not an "on/off switch", modulate that sucka.
