    Anyone go last weekend and watch me get spanked by nearly everything there? :)
    I think Omega Motorsport said I made the most passes of anyone on Saturday (if not Sunday as well). It was too much fun - even if I was still a heavy, stock car with only 2/3 the hp of most the people there - and let me tell you, people love beating Hellcats...
    Definitely need better tires for the next one - I was pulling a lot of people end once I finally hit my stride, but man, launching on those factory tires is pointless. Regardless, now that the nerves are gone and it's cooler out, the December one should be fun :) Anyone going?

    It was a hot day - hotter than I expected it to be. A little sad, since this week it has been cooler out, and when I hopped on the dyno yesterday, I'd gained 65 more hp at the wheel. But alas, there's always next time.

    I found out It's in Gila Bend. I'm signed up to go. The start should be from my 40 mph roll. And I also can't figure out a tow hook solution.

    Sorry for the delay - Yep, it's in Gila Bend. The next one is Dec 12/13. I think 12th is sold out if not both days. I might go on the 12th as a spectator. I REALLY wanted to go and run since the temps have dropped (my car dynoed at 691 with the cooler temps too - vs 626 in the summer), but my tires are slipping pretty bad now and with the holidays, I'm not quite ready to pop for new tires and possible wheels.

    I heard they might do another in march though!

    Don't worry about the tow hook. Jest check it on the paper.

    Yeah - They didn't check anything aside from the fact that you were wearing a helmet and a seatbelt.

    And people did 40mph rolls, from the line, from ALL the way back... whatever you want.
    I think I did the most runs last time because I just hot lapped it for half the day (new cars, man. haha) - I got about 27 or so in... half of which were either on my own or with a friend just messing around. At the beginning there were lines and it took about 10 min to get to the line... about 2 hours in, the lies were only one or two cars, and sometimes none.

    Hey how did you gain 65 more horse?

    So basically show up a little late to not wait in line?

    I'm with Fast Cat - Even from the beginning, the line is negligible (at least it was in Oct), and goes fairly quick. There's a lot of nice people there and some of them like coming over to chat and seeing if you want to do a run with them (since I was one of two hellcats... I mean everyone wanted to see if you wanted to do a run with them)

    The only thing that was different was the temp and 100 octane when I did my second dyno and I got 65 horses off of it. I thought it was a mistake but we did a few runs and it was correct. I still want to take it in soon with 91 again to see how much the temp makes alone, vs temp AND 100. Because if 100 doesn't do much, might as well just stick with the 91 in cooler temps.
