I've been to Beech Bend for their 1/4 mile and Rt.66 for both the 1/4 mile and the autox. I want to do more autox when I get new tires and get some laps in before I upgrade the brakes. I want to see if it helps bring the lap times down like I think it should.

Street racin' and I've done it on the track countless times.

I'm not as hardcore as I once was. $ to constantly fix things catches up to you after a while. When I was 21 or so, I didn't care if the car broke, I fixed it...Now I want to enjoy it as much as possible.:D

let me ask you:

I see 145 MPH on the straights, passing is allowed, most cars in the A&B groups run on Hoosier or Goodyear R tires, people will go through a set of pads and rotors possible in a weekend, Lou Gigiliotti and his son show up and bring some of their C5's, what would you call that?

BMW club calls these DE events. Hot lapping could also describe these events.

That answer your question??:huh: :huh:

Eric

Didn't you knock off a few 1.8 60's? He spun hard on the 12.66 run. I have the video if you'd like it.:thumbsup:

11's on street tires with your combo is going to be a VERY tall order.

No, I haven't raced the Vette...YET! But my dad has raced it at the Drag Strip. He wants to bring it out to a track and open it up and see what that baby can REALLY do! Who knows when that will be though.
