Event Coverage RWYB Nostalgia Drags @ Reynolds, GA

Discussion in 'The Hokey Ass Message Board' started by dirty old man, May 17, 2013.

  1. Hate to hear that but at least you didn't wipe a lobe at the track. What were you running with the old cam? I couldn't get my coupe out of the low 14's with the stock stall convertor last year, hopefully I will be able to leave the line this year.!? :confused: I bought a 2600 rpm stall but I think it needs a 3000 rpm because the 2600 rpm is acting like a 2300 rpm. If I can't get her to launch I am going back to three pedals :cool: You would think 103 mph through the traps ought to be in the high to mid 13's.

    Like Hog Mtn Dave said there are other cars there but usually not enough to hamper our event. We are sharing the track with... well here is the schedule from the track website

    The "hard tire" class will be having a sort of end of season eliminations. This is a sort of run what you brung class for late models, etc. the rwyb aspect's about car weight and stuff like year of car, etc. with no limits on engine or power adders such as nitrous, but gotta run bonafide street "hard tires".no cheater slicks or drag radials, etc,pretty much limited to regular street tires like Cooper Cobra and BF Goodrich TA Radials.
    My info is from a local friend who runs in the class. From what he said, this is a new class, started this year, and not a lot of cars, said he doubted there'd be more than a dozen of them. Should be all the time you want to run as much as you want.
    On another point, get yourself some good insect repellant, as Reynolds is below the "gnat line"!
     
  6. Oh okay. We are about the same. I think you are quicker but I am faster LOL :D :confused: :cool: I know I have too much tire. Right now I am running a 30.5" inch tall tire with 3.73:1 gears. If I put a 26" or 27" tall tire on it I should be quicker but probably not as fast. Man you are soooooo close to breaking into the 100 mph club :cool:
     
  7. Maybe this year i can break it there where only 10 lobs worn down on the cam I thought it a big cam but just worn out

    Hey guys, I hate to break into such quality smack talk, but what time will folks start hitting the strip? I'm going to come out and watch, maybe take a few pics, and I don't want to miss the action. I know gates open at 1, but that has nothing to do with when the fun starts....

    Thanks!
     
  18. From what Mr. Ed Swearingen (track owner) told Dave (Dirty Old Man) and I when this years date was set is the gates open at 1 and racing will begin after the track gets prepped around 2. Come on out, the fun will begin for me and my passenger when I head towards Reynolds in my coupe :D :cool:



    [​IMG] days to see if that torque convertor was worth it :rolleyes: I can't tell much difference, seat of the pants wise but it isn't surging at redlights anymore. :cool:

    The side benefit of having the "hard tire shootout" the same day we run is that the track will be well prepped with plenty of stickum on the asphalt. Should make for good traction and good ET numbers.

    If you want to use the big grill to cook your supper after races, please bring some charcoal.

    Terry from Hog Mtn Garage vs Josh in "The Can 'O Worms" for a headliner
    Burnout has said he is going to show Tony his headlights
    I think Brad may outrun me but we just may have to line up a time or two :cool:
    Who else is calling out who? :confused:

    No dial ins or index, just plain straight up racing :cool: "Run What Ya Brung, Hope Ya Brought Enough: :D
