    14.86, didnt really hook up, wasnt runnning the slicks, and I wasnt used to the "instant green" starts. I was just happy it made to the track and passed tech, it was the farthest Ive driven since getting back on the road. Im saving money now for Hurst slicks, 4.11's and posi

    You know slicks and 4.11s are gonna drop that thing squarely into roll bar territory, right?
    Neat car.

    Probably dont have to tell you this, what i do when i am doing something like this, is shut it off around 800-1000 ft use the short numbers to dial it in, then make one hail mary full track pass, and wait for them to come kick me out...:D;)

    Sweet car! I run a 4:11 posi set up in my Ford 9". It launches so hard that I have seen daylight under the front wheels. Bandimere doesn't want my car on the track without the roll cage, etc.. I didn't want to do that to it as I like its looks as a street car. Seems funny that I can insure it, license it, drive it next to you on the street, but can't get a "time slip". I understand their stance on it and I am content running corner to corner.:D Have fun with your survivor... it is really cool!:cool:

    How cool is that thing. I dig the hell out of it, and 14s in the quarter in that 'sitting on the toilet' position have to feel like 11s.
