Awesome color choice. I bet it looks good being towed by the Lightning.

Until you get to turn 1. :D

Congrats, looks like it'll be fun.

P.S. What was your time in the 1/4 at Bristol in the truck?

You should be recieving you gold chains, silk button down shirt and Boston:3rd stage 8 track in the mail.

Seriously.... goot luck. As I stated in the PM, there's a few really good drivers in AS running them, so there's planty of info to be had. Sam had a hand in them as well, and if you plan on running r-comps, I recommend getting some magnesium wheels for it. get rid of some weight to lug around.

congrats!

My best of the 2 was 13.786 at 104.21 mph. They were making us launch from the side of the track and we had to work our way into the groove. It would be a great engine for your Cobra build.

Heh, I'm sure it would be. Not sure the blower would fit in the bodywork though... :D

Avoid vettes at all cost IMHO. Buy an E36 M3 with four doors and not only will you have a fast stock car, but a sophisticated daily driver as well........ 8)



*******EDIT EDIT EDIT......SAVE YOURSELF NOW and sell that american T*^D before it breaks......Go German!!!!!!!!!


Thanks Rife, I was too late to save the young one.

sophisticated = interior falls apart when you touch it?

Anyway, I think you are a bit late to the party. :)
