    Not sure yet. If the weather is nice I might come down and hang out. I don't plan on racing the vert since its factory stock and slow as balls.

    My 18x5's haven't shown up yet. I have the 18x10.5 for the rear, but no drag radials. Getting these wheels have been a nightmare that started at the end of November.
    My car will probably just spin, but if I feather it a little it may do ok. Should be interesting none the less

    ... rear tires is where it's at especially in the 1/8th. .... 1/8th mile burnouts are fun too. my experience up there is it is normally 10x slicker than the random stoplight.

    <--- spectating, perhaps shooting video. None of my machines are going to be ready for the first event, I'm making sure everything will be in order for the rest on these events.

    The next few weekends are going to be busy as crap for me, so I'm out too. I'm not a good spectator anyway. I'd probably get bored and enter a vehicle that's not ready, then set myself back, when I broke something else, lol.

    Good turnout for the first event, non stop racing save for one air strip brushing. Well over 120 cars racing, saw and BS'd with the fellow streets members and was a good day for racing not real chilly but it was hoodie weather and the wind never quit blowing down the air strip. Only real problem was my brother suffered a N02 backfire in the '00 Z/28 that blew the rear of the LS6 intake manifold apart. Lots of strong running machines.

    Had a lot of fun today. It would have been better if I had my drag radials, but oh well. Great weather other than the wind.

    i was wondering what happened to the z28. I was in line and didn't see what happened, i just saw the hood up, then it being pulled.

    Today was probably the most fun I've had at the FLDs. We all cruised up from kingwood ran all day and made it home with no issues. The 3800 stall and nitto DR killed me today. It would just blow the tires off to the top of second, I tried to short shift high gear but it still spun! Ran 7 times and only got beat once. The old man in the grey monte carlo jumped me out of the hole by about 3-4 lengths and I just didnt have enough time to reel him back in. My old man followed us up in his bone stock 02 GT and I looked around and he was racing it. He had the biggest shit eatin grin on all day long. He always goes to the track with me but has never run his car.....made it all worth it seeing him looking like a little kid lol

    Im out of town....was the weather crappy? Normally there are over 200 cars especially the first event. Did everyone like watching the eliminations at the end more than the classes?

    Windy but dry, good turn out. You should've been there, I was running poorly and that cheese steak would've been yours
