points go where you live, not where you race. We didn't take Ken's points when he drove to SE ;)

I did manage to make some passes in Tuscon back in February. But I have no idea where the time slips went. 16 something anyways. Not as good as i hoped. Just whining. Now back to regularly scheduled awesomeness. We have had a pretty good turnout with the racers this year. Good job everyone.

Wish I could run this week, car has an absolutely insane blend of fuel in it right now. Hopped on the freeway the other day, obliterated the tires in 1st, hit 2nd, more of the same, kept going until I let out...NEVER done that before. Ever.

Got Elliott slated for some time in the next few weeks to real-time tune LH/EZK so early next year I should be able to get some runs on a legit for my car tune, should help things out a good bit.

Yes Quebec that's right.

Damn I barely ever have time to hop on here anymore, it's been a while since I have not read LH/EZK stuff

This forum never changed in look since I joined, and it's honestly recomforting when you've been out for a while

Still chasing down 11's on a stock motor. Went out to Tulsa yesterday and nailed down 12.90@101 with no gas. Tried to make a second pass on the bottle, launched it like it was going to make the pass of its life and blew the rear cam seal out, oil blew everywhere and I shut it down thinking I popped the motor. Probably done for the year now.

I tried to get the R out there for some fluff points, but the track was rained out all December.

It's a little embarrassing that I'm the fastest one to submit for the west coast.

Hopefully 2018 for the 12's...

Don't remind me. I didn't go out enough this year, and when I did, I did a bad job and didn't have traction to do a decent launch.

My local track is closing after this year, so I'm buying some slicks for the upcoming season. I should get into the 12's. My goal is the 11's with e85.

If all goes well you guys from the West coast are going to get creamed again in 2018 for sure!! How ironic that is that the some of the best times will be coming from the snow belt area!

So, you're just saying we gotta get some people to actually GO to the track? We've got a lot of people that never did anything this year.

Dang I forgot all about this! Looks like I would have had the fastest time of the year for the east, this year should be much quicker, I'll have to remember to post up haha.

And thanks for the reminder...
I will start a new thread for the 2018 competition. I'm sure some Arizona dessert folk are tearing down the quarter mile as we speak!

-- pause for my excuses.
I only have slow and not running Volvos now.

What's an Arizona dessert? A sand cake?

I made a few good passes in '17 but none in a Volvo. Maybe I'll throw some Volvos down the 1/4 this year time permitting.

Track in town may be closing its doors. Next closest track is well over an hour away assuming there's no traffic, but there usually is, putting it around 2 hours each way. Might mean the end of my 1/4 times.
