Lebanon Valley dragsway

FYI - I will be going to Lebanon Valley in New York on Wed 5/11 for test and tune night next Wednesday

If anyone else is going to be in the area let me know since I'll be going solo on this one just to have some fun and pick up some timeslips

I should get there at about 5:30, if the crowds hold off I should be through tech and on the track at 6:00 when they start running

You doing a few runs Justin or just going for the hell of it?

Crap, the weather prediction shows chance of t-storms tonight

Maybe test and tune this week won't happen after all

says 30% chance for the lebanon area right now

screw it, I'll probably just head there anyway as soon as I get out of work, worse thing that happens is it gets rained out and I had a nice relaxing drive to the middle of nowhere

Justin showed up a few minutes after I did, we got in a total of 4 runs each before we both decided to head home, not a bad night of test and tune for $20

Unfortunately we did not get a chance to race each other but it was still a fun time, even had a good laugh at my expense after I red-lighted and then spun all the way into 2nd gear resulting in a 19 sec 1.4 mile run


here's a couple pics

RUN 1

R/T .253
60 2.497
1/8 11.054 @ 64.03 MPH
1/4 17.275 @ 78.73 MPH

RUN 2

R/T .253
60 2.569
1/8 11.272 @ 63.14 MPH
1/4 17.548 @ 77.98 MPH

RUN 3

wow justin...so much for that thing about how you said your car could keep with mine ;)

sounds like it was fun. sad part is that I thought my car was inconsistent..after seeing those times, I am quite happy.

My car ran like crap all night, my best time was 16.994 @ 82.53

my worst was 19.157 @ 79.69 (the red light with a spinning right front tire all the way into 2nd, must of driven through the waterbox by accident)
