Alright guys, harding to the drag strip again, and this time I have new front tires, an electric water pump, and no speakers, amp, jack, or spare tire slowing me down! Also, my roommate Devin will be bring his supercharged Harley truck. Should be a good time.

What was your best time? The car was moving for sure. How much did you pick up from last time you ran your car?

The car was running really good for sure. I ran an 8.41 which is one tenth quicker and 84.64 mph which is almost two mph faster. That was the run that destroyed my differential. I didn't even get to tune my suspension any. I know it will do 8.30's with a better launch. Found out my stock diff was about shot anyway. I was spinning one wheel in the water box, so it's time for an upgrade anyway and maybe some hardened axles. I'm pretty proud of my times though. Especially for a bolt-on LT1! You and Troy put down some awesome times! You both gained like 4-5 tenths and 4-5 mph from just tweaking your setup. Very impressive. I'm going to try and order a new diff here soon so I can get back in the action. I had a blast running with you guys.

I had such a blast running my bike up there. I have never even tried to race the thing before so I was super scared of it, but once I got a little more comfortable I went faster and faster every run. Ended up getting a 7.74 at 103 mph, which was pretty good I thought for an extremely novice rider. The bike can go way faster if I just had the balls.

Glad to see you ride your bike out to the track! It's not that bad on the track once you get the feel of it. You was getting faster more ran, but it does take alot of balls to run a stock lenth bike hard at the track.

Josh you and I were running some close times! The guys that was sitting with me ask what you had done to your car. They thought it ran good for just a bolt on Lt1 car.
I ran a 8.486 @ 86.02 on street tires spinning. Hope this Sunday to have drag E/t on the back of my car. I can't wait to see what it run with a tune
and spray it!

Alex is was good to meet you, Nice TA!

Greg I still got to get you that cookie! Lol congrats
