Generally it is by choice mate, not this time though, car still isnt finished, but this is a fair example of why i just cant get into drag racing. Every one has an opinion, there are way to many egos, and no matter what you do, someone will always tell you your doing it wrong, no matter what their experience is.
you hit the nail right on the head!

Thats it Shane, yeah he wasnt having fun untill Mick and I found his little problem, then he was all smiles again, he was pretty happy with the time, sort the convertor a bit then have another go. Once you got your car sorted, caged and able to go straight through scruteneering all the hard work is done, best place for fast cars is on the track, keep the streets for cruising, and the tracks for racing.

haha, im fine. Feeling a tad seedy but all good. I don't think i could go another 10 cans mate, i still have the shakes.

Shane 11.1 is an awsome time for a street car man. The best I ever did in street trim was a 11.2

Yeah mate that's my Spinner.

the car went 10.80 @ 127 with radials on it now with slicks and the glide only went 123 mph but oh well i was having more fun on the return rd lol

only a 1.79 60ft aswell which was kinda wierd cause it felt like it was launching decent then felt like it fell over will compare time slips later on when i can be bothered

11.1 is miles ahead of me! I reckon it's a great time.

Don't worry shane, as long as you're happy with the car dont worry what others say. Drag racing is full of people who are only there to try and bring you down.
I dont see why people arent supportive and enjoying the scene instead of wrecking it.

Because they feel that they and the people they collaborate with are superior than everyone else and are God's gift, a very common yet misfortunate trait some of these people have. But that's racing for you, same goes with every other form of sport, you can learn to put it to the side and enjoy yourself or you can let it wreck your fun and experience.

im happy with the way it performed with the exceptions of first time out with the glide and motor and turbo pretty much throw away items atm, i had a smile on my face and watching mark ripping his hair out was the highlight of my night lol but it seemed to be a night for troubles with the white vl's and hamoud should hav taken his skirt off and brought the vl out cruzing

11s definately are not slow its just that vls have progressed so far that 11s sound slow compared to 7-8-9 second vls which are non existent in there 7-8-9 second form on the street.

the people that think its easy should drive an 10/11 second car to that time at the track and see for yourself.

what an awesome night, was great to finnaly put a face to the name of alot of members, was a great atmosphere with alot of vl's there, fastest vl of the nite was the white gtech calais and AIR747 which came out of nowhere...awesome launches etc...if i had alot of hair on my head i woulda pulled it out, almost cooked my converter coz the car wouldnt stall up past 3psi on the transbreak, i had one pass which stalled and i think i done the one wheel salute.

had a laugh with mark and a few of the boys and was good to see everyone talking and helping eachother (p.s thanks for the ratchets) anyway this morning put the car back on the dyno and found the problem...ive got a very old garrett cooler which has seen around 15 years lol and its finnaly blocked dropping my boost down 12psi and not allowing enough flow to let it stall up after the burnout because the cooler overheated and completly blocked flow!!! anyway i shall be back friday with avengence!! and thanks to alan...what a wizard!

i was stuck in 11.1s for the 1st 2 runs 119-120mph, changed sparkplugs, gained 5mph and entered 10 , would be a waste of time to go back next time without some new things

Good to finally meet you Hamoud. As with all things automotive there's a time where things keep going wrong... you'll get to the stage where itll be turn key, have an awesome night and have no issues!

Same goes with marks thing.. poor ******* has no luck.
