I have heard about GLD. I'm about 1 1/2 to 2 hours away. I would love to give it a try. I'm sure I suck..

Don't worry about sucking, everybody sucks when they start.

I gotta install some stuff this weekend so I'm ready for next weekend. If I get it running and street tuned, I'll be at track next saturday for some track tuning. hopefully I can find a gas station with e85 around here or I gotta redo my whole spark map.

I'm about 3 hours from track, its definitely fun.

Doesn't matter how fast or slow you are, bracket racing is about the driver. Practice makes perfect.

I like Neons, somebody help me :(

Black 96 Dodge Neon coupe. Still dead.

Barney purple 97 Neon coupe. Quick and gay looking. 13.379 @ 101.07 mph. N/A, full interior, pump gas, slicks.

Didn't have enough time to finalize itb's so I ended up tossing on a stock intake manifold and tb and stuck an air filter right on the tb and went. Tried out the slicks but found out real fast that my stock high-mileage clutch didn't like the slicks so it was back to street tires. Best time was 14.289 @ 97 mph or so. Got 3rd in class and got $50.

New clutch is coming, along with a ported head. Probably gonna yank the engine and install my crankscraper, new clutch, dss stage 3 axles, ported head, bigger cams, itb's, and different trans. Next race is in 3 weeks so it'll probably be after that one. Might just get itb's installed by next race if I get them finished by then.

Saw one red Cobalt SS SC there. It was running mid-15's or so.

Next race is May 22.
