Some fun drag racing last night
#1
Went down last night to the Outlaw Street Drags that they hold on the 3rd Thursday of the month. Had a good time. Entered the car in the Mustang Class and the Pre 1980 Detroit Class. Won both, despite traction being a major problem, but it seemed to be for everyone. It is a little bit of an odd set up. it is 1/16 mile heads up bracket style racing with double elimination. The two classes I was in do not allow blowers, turbos, NOS, slicks, etc.

LOL, never heard of a 110 yard drag race. What rear do you have? I guess that keeps the speeds down. 
Good for you winning.
We could never do that here you have to have a one million dollar insurance policy to even have a car show in parking lot.

They do them at the local oval track on the straight, hence why it is so short. I'm running 3.70 gears and a 5 speed. It is set up to be fun and more like a street race scenario, although some of the guys in the open class were running straight up drag cars.

Before they closed all our tracks here due to noise they did some but different. They would line up at the start finish line and do one lap. A 67 Mustang would win every time he came. Saw one kid put his dads torino into the wall on turn 4 totaled it. What do you tell the insurance company?

Very cool! That must have been a lot of fun. Just long enough to get going pretty good, but not to long to have to worry much about screwing something up on the car. Well done!

Nice! We have an 1/8 mile track here I was going to go out to tonight but it got rained out. Went when the Mach was in the paint booth and tore it up with the charger! Can’t wait to run the ponies tho
