Yep yep...no bullshit...an all out dragster. I went to my local drag strip (where they have street legal drags on Tuesdays) and the pro comp cars and sh*t were running. They were just pairing up normal street cars against the pro comp cars because they were letting the pro comp cars have some practice before they actually ran for points. Well I get paired up to a dragster... I can't really see the guy...all I see is his front wheels.

Picture this...almost completely stock Tib...sitting next to a dragster...pretty funny looking.

We'll I musta freaked out a bit on the launch...because if any of you know my launches I usually hit sub .550s. Well this time I jumped the gun and got a R/T of .007 ROFLMAO! The drag racer got a .504. He ran a 8.678, and I ran my personal best of 17.446. (My previous was 17.800) Remember...my tibby is almost completely a stock autotragic. (I have v-power plugs, and this particular night I was running without the resonator and air filter, and I also was running with a huge weight reduction) It was amazing...the light turned green...I looked to my left and didn't see him... I looked forward...and he was halfway down the track LOL.

Only on the strip man. I know it's not good on a regular road, but I took it out like right when I was getting ready to run, and then after the run put it right back in. You have to remember...this is a professional track...they keep it absolutely spotless. This just had the drag nationals here. You could almost eat off of it. (Well, except for the rubber) <img src=icon_smile_big.gif border=0 align=middle>

OMG dude, the shame sh*t happened to me!!! Only the dude I ran against, I almost got into a fight with him in the staging lanes. He said that I cut his buddy off who he was trying to race. Whatever dude. I just pulled up like normal, and the guy waved me by. But yeah, I looked up and all I saw was a little yellow dot.

That is a funny story. I went to a track in PA over the summer and I had to have been the slowest car there. I was running against z28's and Novas. Then I think I get a little break when I line up next to a Del Sol. As I go up to stage he was behind he. All I could see on the front of his car was an intercooler. Needless to say, I lost. My 17.6 to his 14.1. Oh well...maybe I will be there soon :D
