What kinda numbers you puttin down to the pavement?
Best time today was an 8.36@83.94. (1/8 mile) Best ever quarter mile time was a 12.97@ about 105. That was my friend that I was running against on the run I posted. He had a redlight (.447), I was sleeping on the line (.998) but I still beat him by over a tenth with giving up about a half second on the start.

Lawn looks good (great actually) hope your 100% blue does well over time, don't you hate working in the Ryan devs.

Spent the afternoon at Magnolia Drag Strip. It's nice and close, about 15 minutes south of Canton. Used to race at 42 quite a bit, but haven't been there in a couple years. I've heard they are running most of the classes there on the 1/8 mile, so I'm not sure about driving all the way out there when I can run the same distance so close to home. I'm trying to get some suspension work done so I can get my 60ft down in the 1.6 range. Should be consistent 12.7-12.8 if I can get there. Sounds like you and I could have a nice race. Might have to line them up sometime down the road.

sounds like a plan

so, is this magnolia a 1/8 mile? ive never seen anyone run 1/8 at 42....and i go there about 4 times/year....so that doesnt mean it doesnt happen...but i go to test n tune once a month for the summer and never saw an 1/8 mi run

Magnolia is 1/8 mile.

From what I've heard, when they repaved the track last spring there is a nasty bump at the end of the track so they made the faster classes 1/8 mile now. From what their website says, the top, mod, and bike classes are all running 1/8, and the street trophy is running the 1/4.

Yes, it did suck. I have a few more to do this year there. I was very impressed with how it turned out. Took three weeks for it to look like that. It is very, very established. When it is fully done, I will have more pics and will most def. be going on some flyers and eventually my website
