First time out this year. The car had slowed down, as I suspected. The 307 is losing some power in its very old and hard life.

The best I could manage was a 14.74 @ 93 mph. The 60 foots were absolutely atrocious, somewhere in the 2.3 range all night. I don't think I was spinning either. Oh well, I did get my reaction times down to .504, .528 and .514 after a few .6's and .7's. I went three rounds in the eliminations and put a couple of "real" drag cars back on the trailer:). Consistency and lights kill! I lost to a super pro (I think) fox body mustang that ran out the back door with a 8.48 on an 8.48 dial in. That's quarter mile times! The car was fogging a healthy dose of nitrous..... I got nervous with the freight train coming down in my rear view mirror. I broke out and lost.

The car stopped vibrating violently at the end of the track, so that's a big improvement from last year. I guess balancing the tires helped. My girlfriend got to ride in the car with me too. She was white knuckling the whole time, but she had a great time and wants to come back with me next week:).

I think the car and me are both ready for the big hammer PW 350 and 3000 converter to go in...!!!

Sounds like for the most part, ya had fun Kev. Teach the girl friend right early, so there isn't a problem later with you and her going to the track.:)

If I mention races, Connie says "have a nice time". :(

I just think she doesn't pay attention to what you tell her. If said you were gonna go out and hit your head with a shovel, she'd say "have a nice time" :D
