Pretty sure he has a tt as well. Launch it like you need to, let it rip.

Yeah, there's a truetrac in there. I'm not worried about that. I just need some tires.

I've been wanting a good opportunity to give Mr. T8 a friendly ribbing without it being misconstrued... So here's hoping he gets some slicks and a chance to get down to sea level to give me some (8v) competition.

Oh I'm well aware my time slips (and driving) deserve plenty of ribbing.

Have Kyle race your car. If anybody can get it into the 11s with street tires it's him.

For those monitoring the 2018 thread. I built the 2019 edition. Feel free to subscribe and jump in over there.

I declared the winners in the first post there.
1. The west still has the best turnout with Volvo powered cars.
2. The east has their game together with engine swaps.

Great work everyone. It's cool to see all the cars performance in one place.

Pff, I'm no pro! But I'd love to try...

I haven't drag raced in a couple years. Maybe I should do it with the "new" car.
