Default Great Lakes Dragaway Tuesday May 24th!

I havent had a chance to get the TBSS out to the track yet, but tomorrow night is looking like a good time to go. Its going to be a smoke show running on street tires but Im sure fun regardless. No rain is in the forecast and the temperature is going to be in the low 50s.


Whos in!?

I'll probably be heading up there. Prep sucks on Tuesdays but I should be able to set a new PB.

Zero track prep tonight, and they shut down at 830! I got in about 10 runs. Best was a [email protected] 108, 1.64 60'. I just couldnt get it to hook well at all, I had to pedal it every run. Im satisfied with tonights outing though. It has gone faster than my previous best already on its first night out. Some more seat time and the right tire will get this thing where it needs to be

Glad to hear that you're happy with how things went!

Did they shutdown early due to weather, or?

Dam man that is impressive. I would not be upset with that at all. Now does it feel though with being 2wd vs awd?? Slicks and Skinnies to come soon.
