same here... seems to be the holdup for me, no trailer so if I break it, well I'll have to find a way to get it out to the hwy so AAA doesnt throw a fit... Then its 1.5hrs no traffic. Theres the 1/8th in Madras, so 2-2.5 for that. But we might be getting the green light to do monthly arm drop 1/8th drags at the airfield across the river.

Been that way for a while on my end, one 1/4 is 2 hrs one way, the other is 3 hrs one way. 1/8th is closer to 1hr one way; Getting harder to do this as time goes on.

One time in the "na" class is all it would have taken to win for either side.

Yeah. Sounds good. I started a new thread for 2018. I'll get it polished up with the new times and stuff ASAP.
The East killed it in 2017 with lots of fast v8 swap Volvos. But the west coast, with California smog laws making swap cars really difficult is still putting up some good performance with Turbocharged 4 cylinder Volvos. Good job everyone. Good luck in 2018.

Here is the 2018 Thread.
