Figured I would join in. While not anything like what Shiloh or Doug did we had some success this weekend as well.. We have been running a local Grudge Top 10 deal. Used to just be Las Vegas list but now it includes guys from Arizona, Utah, Cali and Nevada. We have two classes a big tire and small tire class. My son and I have been running big tire to support the deal and have some fun. Well this past Friday night we took over the #1 spot on the list. We have been #2 for awhile and the number one car is BRUTAL fast, its a Proline powered TT Mustang on a radial. We have raced a few times and I have not faired so well. Went red and car stumbled last two times. It was stupid hot, air temp was 105 track was 160 DA was 6000'ish. So conditions were not ideal for sure, especially for him. We got lucky and put a Mopar at the top of the list. Fun to beat up on the Nitrous, turbo and blower guys for sure. Sadly we will miss the last race as the wife and I have a prior commitment out of town and like last year I will fall to the bottom again since we missed last race then as well. There is a video or two on facebook but here is the run to take the top spot and then a later round with no one in the other lane. Bear in mind it is minimally prepped and was REALLY hot..

Big congrats, Al. You put together a mean race package!(car and driver) by the way, a put those 10.5x33 Hoosiers on 14 wide rims on the Dart. They will come around I believe with some shock adjustments. They weren't stable down track till I went up to 10 psi.

Thanks to all for the kind words. We work hard to get all we can out of the car. Still more left in it but will keep working to find it all. But alas it is just a bracket car and consistency is our true main goal. Although looking at Outlaw 10.5 for SCSN if we can make the car happy with that tire might be fun.
