Steph and I just got back from the track. .

God damn, there were a lot of people there today. :wtf:

I got to race Sgtstanko finally, in his Jeep SRT8.
First run, he got a great launch, and at the very end, I caught up and beat him.. :drive:

I got a [email protected] MPH
Stanko got 8.567 @ 81.19 MPH

Second run, I tried it in dyno mode, I guess in the ML the power steering shuts off too. :dunno:
He beat me the second time

He got 8.45
I got 8.82

We only did two runs.. there were way too many people there.

On the way home, i realized my car is running kind of slow, come to find out, the whole entire time, my floormat was pushed under the gas pedal, so I couldnt floor it completely. :wall: I pulled the floormat down, and the monster was back..

Oh, well , its 1-1

Ill get him again next time. :drive:

Steph went with her SI for the first time, and she did great also. :clap:

yes I did :thumbdown: My first time without powerchip and on stock wheels, I ran an 8.9, so this powerchip really does make a difference.
I didnt even bother burning out..
The jeep did a little one on the second run.

I agree, in the quarter mile, he wont do as well, my car goes 70-100 pretty fast. :clap:

His Jeep isnt stock. Those Jeeps launch like crazy :( On the first run I was cathcing him the whole way and passed him right before the 1/8th mile came, .

What did you think of Irwindale? Was it worth the drive? How long did it take you to get there? I am going to do another post in the track section but this was one of the locations I was looking at for a two day meet. The place is booked up until November for Sat or Sunday but we could rent the strip on a Friday for $6k.

It was OK. It took me a good hour to get there, it was rush hour. Its a cool place, although there were too many people there yesterday. Had to wait an hour between runs. Now, if the track was rented out, thats a different story. I would prefer a 1/4 mile track, but 1/8th mile is fun too.

The fact that I shaved .4 seconds from my last time going, it was worth the drive.

Blue, this is an 1/8th mile track? How much they charge to race there?
Yes, it is an 1/8th mile

20 bucks for the whole afternoon.
