That put a BIG ****-eating grin on my face.You've raced before? Or is this just a jump-in with all 8 feet type deal. You'll be working harder than Lars Ulhrich on the skins
I've never run 11s. Got less than 2/10ths away on my V-Rod...
My buddy hasn't raced, a lot, but I have to admit he's had a little more experience than I have over the last 40+ years, since we were teenagers, but we've always been "into it" and my first 1320 trip was at 16 in 1978. He just ran 9.8 at 139 in his 2005 supercharged Vette.
Look, I posted this thread in the Racers forum because while y'all are KIND enough to reply without cruelty, I am hearing you! I just figured having a little "something extra" that I could reach for, if it looks like I'm close but still 1/2 car behind at the ⅛ mile or 1K foot mark, a 125-150 shot wouldn't be something that set up properly would cause any trouble, but could turn a close L into a close W.
We're talking about being in 3rd or 4th gear by the time I hit the juice.
