I hope you make SCR. We could use some more people showing up. Seems like many of the older ones are not coming anymore.

W31 Success!!!

I didn’t do any preparation to my Cutlass as I spent all my time focused on truck and trailer and all thinks hauling related.

My truck and trailer worked very well, and got tested big time as Empire Dragway is in a very hilly part of NY!!! On one hill OTW home my truck downshifted into first gear and was reving 4-5 grand for 4ish minutes, and of course followed by a 10% grade downhill right after, and every hill has a hard turn at the bottom!!!

Saturday was rained out but Sunday we got two time trial runs and then a quick 8 shootout (9 cars actually) also FAST were racing 9-10-11 second runs.

I was thrown off by a couple new things….. they use a Pro tree Vs a Sportsman tree…. My first reaction time was 0.8953 :-) I was so surprised, you stage and then all the lights flash and you are supposed to be racing…….. I was literally looking around to see WTF just happened :-) They also hose down the burnout box which makes a burnout easy (I still have yet to use the brakes for a burnout) but one time I didn’t burnout enough and spun off the line like I was on ice.

ET’s were 14.4, 14.7, 15.2, etc but I was so focused on towing that racing was very secondary.

I was so happy to tow my car to the track, race, and tow back home without issues!!!

Now I can fine tune things.

W31 Success!!!

Well said!!

I’m getting a few loose ends wrapped up with the truck and then I’ll get racing again.
