After the last experience I had there, I don't think I'll see GLD for a loooong time.

What happened? My friend was up there this weekend for the nitrous fest and all that special racing stuff (his girl's dad has a 9 sec GP) and I heard they had a lot of problems (tree wasn't working, lane kept closing for random reasons, etc.) The one time I went there I barely got any runs because they're shit wasn't working. They should really spend time BEFORE they open up to get their shit straight

Last time we went out to GLD (8/12) it was a fuster cluck all night long. They started running cars 1hr+ late, some kid blew his honda's trans and rode it all the way down the track, took 1.5hrs to cleanup, they fucked up races that they agreed to run for us, cars were getting loose on the big end of the track... it just wasn't pretty at all. That's not even discussing the fact that they had some brother on the intercom during the cleanup time just chewing off everyone's ear. It was pretty much terrible.

E85 @ shell on 14 in Crystal Lake... :) I've often wondered. Just never decided to make a E85 tune.

What all are you doing to the tune to make it E85 compatibly 10sec?

Not much, just a higher flowing filter and a tune. The stock injector o-rings will swell but my car and many others have bigger injectors which come with synthetic o-rings, problem solved. Besides that GM did a great job making everything else compatible with E85. I love the stuff, smells great, works great, easy as hell to tune, and it's the cheapest 105 octane gas period.

EDIT: KJ, I'll take a look at your scan tonight and shoot you back an email.
