Since the weather is getting better I would love to see some new entries in the fastest TC list. I know that there are more people on here that race than have entered. If you have any time slips send them to me with all the other needed info and I will add you to the list. Let's get this list moving and show people what are cars can really do.
NO TC and NO headaches.

As soon as I get a chance I'll see what the 'Coupe can really do, problem is, I'd like to hit Cecil on a Friday or Saturday, but those are the two days I work the longest hours... Sucks to be me... I get no "test-n-tune"...

And no one should worry or be embarassed about posting a slow time, everybody needs baseline numbers! It's just inspiration to better yourself and your vehicle, and you'll see more improvement if you start slow.

Anyway, I have EVERY hope and intent on having my 'bird on the list- no matter how low- within the next month or so...

I know I've got less than factory spec. performance with a practicaly stock car, but I have every intention of going down the 1/4 for the first time this summer.

natmac3, Thanks for the words of encouragement.

I should be hitting the track shortly after carlisle. Still not sure if I'm going to have every thing back together before carlisle. The car is in about a million pieces right now, and I have to take it apart further. Should run mid 13's when I get it all back together, maybe low 13's with some drag rads.
As to running slow numbers, the first time I ever raced was with my tc. The car had been about 75k miles sience the last rebuild (for a total of about 150k ish), the over boost sol. was shot, and the boost sol. was gone looking for it. I put five people in it and drove for two hours to get to the track. Best run that night was about 17.5 sec. at about 80mph or so. lol. WHOLE LOT of fun though, and at least it looked better than the rice burners!
