personally i am not interested in the race..... but i sure do love the path to the race.... sometimes the climb is much more interesting and entertaining than the destination itself

loving it all!!!! I am sure everyone going will do good and hopefully nothing breaks or puts a damper on the show!!! good luck

But it will be quite the sight to see. We definitely need videos of you guys going head to head when it happens Tom and Dan! Make sure both of you have an in-car cam as well going down the strip!

Nice! I'm amazed at how high my 3200 RPM stall jumps in RPM when I give it gas. Do you daily drive this thing? Have a dyno yet?
