Looks like St. Thomas is going to be open for racing on Saturday [evil]

Traction is gonna suck but it'll be fun to get out for a few shakedown passes with the changes to the car!!

Anyone else from the Ontario area heading out?

[cheers]

haha thanks guys [Smile] I am hoping and praying the weather will hold.

If I run ANYTHING in the 11's@120-122mph with track conditions the way I am expecting and my rusty driving after all winter I'll be thrilled [Big Grin]

It'll be interesting to see how much the extra weight (about 120 pounds: cage, carpet, stock battery in rear) affects car in the 1/4.

I'll definitely post results when I get back
[cheers]


ps- I relocated my catchcan tonight and rerouted the PCV lines to monitor my oil usage (pics soon)

Chris
