Default 11/30 Firebird Raceway???

Anyone in for 11/30? Barring unforseen circumstances I will be up there. It will be an all drag evening. No drag and drift. It should be a little cooler and fun!

I shall consider it. Not sure if I want to take the truck, the car or the bike. I'll pick my poison when it gets closer.

lol, you are hooked! I predict a 12.73 for you. Also it depends what drag radials you have. The nitto nto5rs i have are not hooking there. But I do not want to spend the 500 for the hoosiers just yet.

Hell yea man, can't wait to see it go!! I almost bought an pbm A6 gxp because I love to drag, but I love how fun the M6 is on the streets, even if the M6 is slower. Haa.

Are you doing anything with your modified exhaust manifolds?

Yes, selling. Have someone interested in the cat delete pies but no $$ yet. Also have the ported ceramic coated stock manis.

Would be cool to do one run on my car with better traction.

I am still getting some vibration on full acceleration. I am putting the ati damper in next week. I will be there. But I still think she is not running well. Can anyone recommend a good mechanic in Tucson or Phoenix that has a specialty in vibration diagnosis>

This all started when I exploded the carrier bearing. It was a traumatic event. Replaced to a camaro diff, g force axles, dealer put in new driveshaft, new flex plate and a re flash and clean of the converter.

i am thinking maybe the input shaft of the tranni was hurt. nothing visible. but it does not need to show visibly.

arhhhhh!

Thinking about it , but for Dec 8, the Sheraton Wild Horse Pass looks like a fun hotel for our kids, and Firebird seems to have the last test and run of the year in Dec 8.

I can take the drive with the entire family to Arizona on Friday for a little vacation time, stay in Chandler on this hotel, even race the car on Saturday, and come back home Sunday.

How are the plans for everybody in Dec 8 at Firebird ?

I don't know Chandler at all, but i saw in the Firebird raceway website, the list of hotels, and this one looks fun, how is Chandler for family fun with little kids ?

Downtown Chandler will be all lit up for Christmas and lots of other great things to do. I'm only 20 mins from Firebird too.

we stay at the wildhorse pass resort once a year. do not do the hotel and casino. adult orientated. the resort has a boat that takes you to rawhide. the pool has a waterslide if operational this time of the year. you can either take the freeway or five minutes away near mcdonalds you can take 54th street up to the main drag of chandler blvd.

i may be there. i just ran a scan for misfires with hp tuners. only a couple at idle which is normal with a cam. so i know the internals of the engine are not the problem.

Well, I'm hoping it cools off a little by the end of the week. We almost hit 90 degrees this past weekend. That's insane for late November!! Who's going for sure?
