    I heard talk of brainerd in oct but not sure of the dates. I wont be going on the 11-13 cause my car doesnt exactly fit that class.

    There are quite a few domestic vehicles there. As long as you are fuel injected you can participate

    Interesting. I'll have to check my schedule. I'd love another crack at 13's on street tires.

    Re: Drag Race weekends

    Anyone else going? I wouldn't be able to make it until mid to late afternoon of Saturday. Are there places to camp or just hotels.

    Re: Drag Race weekends

    I'll be heading down. Friday is usually the best day since there are a lot less people and it's usually cooler. Saturday is not bad either but it can get pretty packed, in June you had to wait an hour to get one pass in. You can camp right at the track.

    Attah boy!!! lol...


    I'm aiming for Map, I'm either leaving thurs after work or Friday morning early. I am in good shape so far, the car fired up last night. Just finishing wiring up the tranny controller and a few other odds and ends and it will be ready for a tune.

    Provided it doesn't explode over the next month..(which if history repeats itself..theres a good chance I'll run into some kind of issue)...than I'll be ready to make some passes. 14's here I come!

    Well at least the automatic reduces the chances of you stalling on the line again

    Re: Drag Race weekends

    I'm most likely going to drive down Saturday @ 6am. I get off work @ 5 so hopefully I can get a few runs in. How strict are they about helmets? I may have to get a new one if they are picky.

    Re: Drag Race weekends

    I never actually stalled...it just bogged like crazy...that was before I changed my slave cylinder. The throw was just too much on the factory one...had to go do an isuze slave. Basically before that change it was an on off switch. I've driven standard since I was 16 and I would stall it backing it out of my driveway at least twice.

    P.S. Fuck you cale ...lol

    I'm pretty sure they're strict on it being snell approved, 2005 or newer

    Re: Drag Race weekends

    ^ yup must be at least 2005. Mine is expired (M2005) but with my less than 13s time they weren't too concerned and let me race anyway
