I'll be heading out to the dragstrip this Friday to see what the car can do in warm weather. Anyone care to join?


Gates open at 6PM. Racing starts at 7PM.


Spectator: $15.00
Racer: $40.00


Don't forget, need a Snell 2010 helmet or newer now! And if you have a supercharger, turbo, or nitrous, you will also need a fire jacket for tech.

Cycle Gear in Mesa carries fire Jackets....
I might show up as a spectator.
I want to run my G8 and see how adding the VCM changes my times, but My helmets aren't Snell rated (Motorcycle helmets) . I wish I could just buy a Snell Sticker for my helmet! I doubt if I can find a cheap helmet before Friday.

Crazy busy.............. DA was not good........... did NOT get my 11 sec slip although I PBd a 12.0 ET.

Enjoyed meeting a few more G8ers face-to-face ! We were well represented. I think there were 4 GXPs there.

It was terrible.

I ran an [email protected] for my test pass.

When I went to run again, it finally happened. I smoked my clutch!! Time for an LT1-SC Monster clutch


It was nice meeting all of you guys! We need to get together again! Maybe in the fall?
