Default Getting back to the track...

New rear slicks and suspension. I think I like the stance...

Cool, our local track is running. You have to schedule in advance to get on the list and no spectators. Take video!

No fun if nobody is there to watch, I haven't heard much about whats going on at the track here, I did read a few months ago that it was gonna be closed most of this season

The tracks around here are open. Full house the last few weeks. I need to get back. I have been once and ran my street bug with a bone stock 1600 but went a couple of rounds, bracket race on a pro tree.

Never ever raced with a pro tree. I hope to one day. Been welding on my junkyard turbo header.

It is a blast. A VW reacts a lot quicker than a heavy automatic car. I ran in the 7.50 index at my local track and went many rounds.

My limited drag racing experience was back in the late ‘60s running my Buick powered Ford coupe at the ‘grudge races’ 1/4 mile. How do the 1/8 mile times compare?
My best time with a borrowed set of wheels with slicks was a 14 flat at 101mph. Those nights were really fun.

That calculator says 8.30’s with a 14.01 and 100 mph. That’s a lot of mph. Must have been spinning them tires.

Up until that evening I’d been running my rear street tires and lowered the air pressure, but ran in the low 15s and 96mph or so. After going through 5 early Ford gearboxes and two rear ends just driving on the street, I was running a Chevy drive train. That night I’d helped a guy with a problem with his Chevy coupe and he loaned me this wheels with Bruce’s recaps type slicks. That made a big difference.
