    Well the day has finally come and alot later than i thought it would. A track day. :D

    My boy informed me that him and his VW 2006 GLI plus a bunch of buddies that own vdubs (i think its a club) are going to be at kennedale raceway (pretty popular 1/8th mile strip down here in DFW texas) tonight and he's invited me to come "watch". I dont know the details yet but i think i have decided that i'll run my stang for the very first time if i'm allowed to. Should be fun and nice to get a base time to work off of for modding in the future.

    You read right folks, this will be my very first trip to a track of any kind with the stang and i'm VERY excited! :banana:

    I will most definitely get a vid or two.

    Post up your predictions for times lol, me personally if i get anything higher than a 10 i'll be stoked. :rollinglaugh:

    Everyone make detailed guesses and the person to get closest will receive 100 credits to shop at my imaginary hat store extravaganza.

    Wish me luck! O0

    I promise that i will. lol.

    The guy that invited me has some turbo work done and has broken the 300hp range, while i am completely stock. But thats ok, its all in fun.

    Plus my first mod is going to be a nice 100-125 shot so i'll be in the lead then. ;)

    Oh wait.

    Sgt major lol.

    Thats the scary guy with the haunch that could kill you with his fingertip right? I was thinking of his son lol.

    Sgt major scares me. [​IMG]

    Is that story that went around true where he wore a hunters orange jumpsuit into the woods playing paintball with a bunch of cadets and formulated
    a guille suit of brush and leaves and sticks and hid in trees and swam in water and pwned all 13 of them without even being seen?

    Thats the definition of a man right there. ;D

    One of the years that i went there he was showing off a plaque he had just recieved from the military confirming his 100th kill in vietnam lol.

    you are thinking of Mike Sidwell...I graduated with him.

    YEs the story is true about the painballers.. I played against him for 4 years :)

    He is a natural born killer :) He is/was/always will be role model. I joined the military because of him.

    Well i went yesterday, it was incredibly awesome, although, i didnt get to run my stang and neither did anyone else, it was just a bracket racing type day with a bunch of different classes, they had open wheel and also door slamming super mods or something like that, it was awesome, a bunch of BBC, SBF and even hemi power, my fave car out there running was a buick t-type regal with a giant blow off valve and turbo, sounded sexy. They even had one open wheel car that ran a 4.38. :eek:

    Next weekend though theyre having a street car test and tune,/ run whatcha brung type kind of deal so i'm gonna get a few passes then. Should be awesome.

    I'll definitely post vids when this goes down. :)
