    went to the track

    I went to Atco Sunday for a few maiden passes. The car did well. I took it easy launching at idol and lifting early as I do not have all the requirements to be in the 10's. So with all that plus a 350 lbs driver I ran a couple 11.50's at 129 mph. I think with a hard run and avg size driver the car could dip into the 10's. Was most impressed with my .002 reaction times. Not bad for an old fat guy.

    Hi! I noticed that you mentioned you've used Nitto tires. Did you use the 555R drag radials? I've read in some forum posts that it has the same rubber compound with Toyo R888. How true is this?
