Sc00p thats fabulous!
My bro is going to Lebanon Valley up in NY this friday with 60 other guys from the Corral.net who rented out the track for the day.
Now well finally be able to see what his spruced up 5.0 can do

I WANTED to go but I have class this friday and itd be too much of a hassle to go home, get my car, and then go there ---- even though Id LOVE to see BeeBop run like a 21 in the quarter ahhaha

Id personally be happy about the gas mileage more than anything and of course the fact that you got 12 runs in!

have a good one!

Thats a great run, congratulations, the 14 second club has a new member!

Im betting that you could run faster with more traction right? Thats cool though, saving something for next time!

12 runs is something to be proud of because its not a run if it cant be redone.

Only one 14.9 run the rest were around 15.01-15.06.The worst run was with my dad driving it.He had a 15.20 with alot wheel spin.That was his 1st time driving my car at the track.
I was trying to say that I ran 12 runs for the day.
Traction is getting better but I have to leave at idle.To get the best runs and 60's.Or at 2000 rpm I have about 20+feet of wheel spin.
