    Decided to head to the track Saturday..man it was cold. I used to run slicks and skinnies, a 125 shot of the gas and power shift my stang to hi 11's. As I have gotten older and tired of switching stuff up at the track I went another route. I currently run an SQ blower and 18 inch drag radials. As the track is 3 hours away, I have to be careful how hard I beat on the car. This was the first time, and I did not power shift. The car ran a [email protected] with a 1.9 60 foot. I only ran three times but I was quite happy, spare in the back, half a tank of gas. lol I think I can get this car into the 11's with this set up. I will probable run my slicks and skinnies in the spring, powershift it and finally get a real number instead of what I think it can do. Anyway, thanks for reading, I made it home in 2.5 hours, running at 70-80 and still manged 14 mpg. So all in all, I am real happy with what the car is doing and how well it is running. Peace out!

    Thanks guys..I was real happy with the times. I mean those 18 inch bullet rims weigh a ton. lol I miss the initial hit of running on Nitrous, but man I don't miss the bottle refills. lol
