    Just got off the phone with Phillip...gonna be up there monday morning at 10am to get the Hondata on and get that mofo tuned...


    Driving 4 hours to Dallas at >4krpm is gonna suck....


    Driving an hour and a half back at redline is gonna fuckin' rule! jk....


    Anyways, I'm hoping to hit 220 to the wheels. That's all. That should net me at LEAST a 12.90 on drag radials, provided my axles can hold it.


    I still haven't gotten over the fact that something that I built completely on my own worked, and is still working.

    You should take a video camera with you and do a vid of it :thumbsup: . It will be like Central Florida Turbo and how they do it. Although it will be called Lufkin Allmotor Nazis productions :D . But sounds cool man i guess you will not see your goal of 12's till after christmas but still a valent effort. And farther than i will ever go.

    edit : xmas??? dont take the christ out of christmas

    it's running by christmas. excruciating circumstances (such as my pistons getting jacked) kept me from running a 12 by crimmus. but it's at least running.

    :)


    edit: and yeah, i'm taking my digi with me :)

    Haha.... I remember being on I-35 north and just after the highway splits heading to Dallas, there were about four state police cars spread over about 4 miles with their victims. Usually you see one cop that is busy on the side of the road and can breathe a sigh of relief, but no.... no respite for the wicked on that day. :ph34r:

    Eh, it's Texas. If you're doing 20 over, the cops just blow by you because you're going too slow.

    How much does your car weigh? and is it 100% streetl legal? i mean to hit 12.9 your car would have to weight no more then 2400lbs and you would need 220whp
