going to the track tonigh. but the only problem i got is that if you in the 12 bracket you have to have a helmet and i dont have one here at school. so i think im going to to run like 5 1/8mile passes and then i'll let her eat one good time LOL
I'll post some times tonight.

Most tracks require that if you run 13.99 (8.49 in the 1/Cool and faster you have to wear a helmet, might want to get one if you plan to run you car often.

hey ashley, quick question... what else do you need the lower your times go. I realize the helmet and of course pants and no sandles? but what do you need for lower... say sub 12 times?

Driveshaft safety loop.

Don't really haven't to worry till you hit 11.50 (7.30), then you have to do roll bar and some other fun safety stuff I can't remember off the top of my head at the moment. I'll look it up tomorrow and get back to you.

Adam, if you're planning on taking the car to the track often then you'll probably need to start saving for a cage, but it also depends on how strict they are.

I've run at darlington before, track hooked but he people sucked. They were jackasses and i only got 3 runs in after like 5 hours, they were more concerned with the bracket racers then the test and tune people. Then 2 of the runs were supposed to be 1/4 mile runs and 1 was going to be 1/8th but they accidently didn't time my only half way decent 1/4 mile run. But the tracked hooked great.
