Well I just got home from the midnight drags in vegas. I must say, I was very disappointed. There was such a huge turn out that I only got one run. To make matters worse there was a 35-40mph head on wind and the track was in crappy condition... nobody could get traction on their launch. To make matters worse I blew my run by spinning my tires during my launch and missing 3rd gear. Here is the clip of my run.
Needless to say at least I caught up. Oh sorry about the video cutting off before the times came up. the girl recording it stopped recording before my time came up to look back at the next set of cars. ill post my slip when I get a chance. its late...
yeah dude, it felt slow too. I have video of some vipers and srt-4's and evo's and turbo deisel trucks, and hondas, and acuras, and mr2's, a scion tc, my bros turbo saturn. ill copy the whole tape to my computer and chop up the drags and post some. I just cant believe how much the wind slowed you down
it looked slow because it was slow... the track was in crappy condition and there was 40 mph wind blowing head on. I only ran a 17 sec 1/4 mile. Thats fricken slow. The last drag I did a long time ago when I only had an Intake I was runnin 15's.
cant say ive done that before... ahh crap

my brother has done a lot to his car. what was funny was all the people that were shocked to see a saturn with a turbo. I absoultly love the sound of his bov when he is runnin. im gonna chop up my videos of the drags and post some more later on tonight
I think everything looked slow because the group I went down with sat at the top of the bleachers so they were far away from the track. And the wind really slowed you down because it was blowing so hard head on.
