My nobody cares .02....

Had to >> through the "pre-game show".....

Watched the race....... I liked it better than the list races, which I just don't care about at all.
I >> through a lot of those shows too.

The Memphis preview didn't look all that promising to me.
Lots of BS and smack talk...... Not enough car stuff or racing..... But we'll see.
I'm expecting a lot of >> is gonna happen with the new show as well.

Did anymore catch Justins comment about the brakes on Shawn's rear end? He was worried that they wouldn't hold enough for him to build boost as they were only single caliper (each side) and his were double. Correct me if I'm wrong but don't they go on the trans brake to build boost then use a bump box to bump in?

He said on the podcast and maybe once or twice on the show that he doesn't use a bump box. He "goes in like a man" and stages the car. If I remember correctly.

One of the previous shows chief explained how murder nova used a bump box. I myself being a stick shift guy never heard of it and looked it up to know how it worked.

I was really disappointed with the Mopar showing "again" It sure would be nice to see something different than Fox body Mustangs and GM junk wining every race.

It takes $$$ and mopar guys are just working class guys. I need sponsorship to be competitive and so far that's nonexistent lol. My hip pocket can only do so much.
Someone buy my SRT Challenger and I'll spend all the $$ on my Hemi Road Runner. But that's only going to go so far. My T shirts will help a little but they will be done at the end of January and the 1st batch is a break even kind of deal.
These cars eat $$ faster then they eat gas.

Hard to get excited about a mopar wrapped with another brands body. Stinky Pinky is hard to get excited about just because of the name. That Demon looked like a show car at a drag race.

If someone really wants to go fast at this stuff they ought to build a Charger or something with that long 114" + wheelbase. ProMod chassis, stock roof and quarters. I was surprised to find out that the Pontiac is the same as a 'Cuda in wheelbase. Yeah, the Demon looked really slow. Guys looked terrible on the tree. Maybe that's why they can't use the timing equipment and race with the real men. 1 second lights ain't gonna cut it! How about the tool in the Vega watching the Pontiac driving away from him and then staying in it to wreck the car! Should have switched seats with the guy beside him... laugh

Leaving on an instant green isn't that easy.

All of pro drag racing should be on an instant green.

Chief sure did well. Shawn sucked and so did most of the others. Reacting to a light is reacting to a light. Yellow or green what's the difference?

Because the .4 tenths tree gives you an extra .4 tenths to see the light.

I'm not saying they are going to have .00 lights. Instant green kinda takes a red light out of the equation don't you think? I saw some guys going deep which I think I would do every time in that situation. Why not? You're shortening the track 6" and you are reacting to green so no chance of going red...

I know I can't kill a tree anymore. Age I guess ?
I see the green light and look both ways before moving. LOL

True, it does take the red light out of the equation...unless someone is really guessing.

I'd rather see some slower lights and get rid of some of the red lights.

IMO, I think you'd see some of the PS drivers cutting great lights would not be nearly as good as they are on a 4 tenths tree.

Think about that... PS drivers are leaving with the clutch. I know they would be better than these tools...
