Re: June 23 Evo School info and a special request for June 24 local

Re: Dragcross!!

I see for the dial in we will get 3 runs for dial in. That works fine for all of the pro drivers. Last year if i remember correctly we got 5 runs for dial in.

Looking for suggestions on muffler and high flow cat that will meet ETR sound requirements. Plan on replacing OEM cat and muffler with high flow cat and low back pressure muffler. Know that other members have solved this problem, looking for suggestions so don't reinvent the wheel.
