Final day of TNT at Beech Bend Raceway tomorrow.

First time at the track with the 9" rear. I'll let you guys know how it goes.

I'm jealous... Wish I could be there but I'm still trying to track down parts to fix mine.

Axles should be on the way this afternoon (missed the UPS guy yesterday) and I'm still trying to get a hold of Tim's dude for that locker. I think I'm going to start looking into a new one cause it'll be Christmas before that guy calls me back.

Well it didn't go too well for me.

1st of all I suck at driving a stick car. Blew the launch 2x, missed 3rd the first run and missed 4th the second run, then the 9 decided to start puking fluid...the center section bolts came loose...I tightened them but didn't want to run again the way it was w/o getting under the car and torquing them right.

13.6 @ 102 with the missed 4th gear was the better of the two runs...the other was a 15.

Just need a little more practice Chris. TRACK practice.

Was fairly happy w/ mine. SS did 13.35 @ 107.9 w/ a 2.25 60'. Get a good 60 and the car MIGHT go 12.99.

I'm going to install a line-lock, get some ET streets and get down to the local 1/8th mile this winter for practice practice practice.

Done at Beech Bend... the 1/4 mile in Bowling Green Ky. Luckily for us down in TN there is a 1/4 down south of Birmingham that is open all year round, and a 1/8 mile just about an hour south that is open the same... So not techinally done.
