Default Roll call! Who racing?

Spring is almost here and Im curious how many here going to be hitting the track this summer.

Who going to be fastest around here?

What you hoping to run?

As for myself Im planning to dip into the 10s this year for the first time and Im going to try my luck at a few True Street events at the Norwalk Ohio NMRA and NMCA races this year.

I'll place a bet that you'll be the fastest Lima engine based ranger here. RangerGT is in the 10s but he has a Duratec in his '89. Chris (lowranger96) will probably be in the 12.5-11s range with his new setup.

I'll be racing at the same track as RangerGT. No idea how fast. Currently the 5.0 turbo feels slower than my daily driver.

Eric, come down to Norwalk for the NMRA race in June and cheer on me and some of the other 2.3t guys coming from Turboford!

I wont be able to lean on mine all the way due to no cage so I might have to turn down the power to just run 11.50 or slower at these True Street events. Milan Dragway has a bunch of No ET races where they dont tech the cars in that will be able to see what it will run all out.

If all goes well I'll make a 12.?? pass with a T5 this year. Looking to max out my 83lb injectors with E85.

I'll be back on the track this year for sure, I missed not having my truck out last season. My goal is to run high 9's at least once, low 10's at the very least. I'm legal to run 10.00.

I've never raced a RWD vehicle before. I don't even know what to expect.
