how are you getting them all down to 2900?

Hell, I've always wondered why all of you guys cars were so heavy. My junk is ~2900# with stock K member, A arms, GT front seats, dash internals, and 60# of ballast. Still has carpet, interior/trunk panels, and power windows/locks.

Rocky - you need to use an actual scale. 

^ This..................i've weighed my GT about 4 different times, my AOD hatch 3 times and my coupe was weighed by the previous owner at certified scales Grin

Got bored today and drove over to the local recycle yard and weighed it. 2760# without me (175) or the nitrous bottle (25).

I did. ABC Recycling, scales calibrated daily.

Since then, I've removed the door bars, converted to coilovers, swapped to Drag lights with skinnys, and cut off a few other items that weren't necessary.

Now i've done my part.................i'm ready to read about some other guys track outtings!

I'm beginning to think that we are about the only ones going. Everyone else must be snowed in. Gotta be it.

We are covered up in overtime at work right now. But I'm gonna get back to the track before it gets hot, even if I have to take vacation time to do it.

We race all most every weekend over here but I think the Northies get tired of me rubbing it in so I try to keep it down this time of year so I don't put them into a deep depression. Unfortunatley I am not racing this weekend in the "lights out race" I have a family commitment on Saturday but i will go watch tomorrow for a little while. The live feed is on now and first round of qualifying is about to start. www.motormaniatv.com

The new house and having a 3.5 year old and 5 month old is killing any chance of me doing darn near anything with the car right now.  I've got plenty more excuses.  Just let me know how many you need to get me off the hook.  Embarrassed

Update.......Atmore outing, first pass Rodney breaks all four studs on left side.....repairs car to the side of the burnout box. I drive el gato negro (Rodney named car), but went on drag radials.....no good, best pass was an 8.02 at 85ish i believe. 60' in the 1.80's (1.89) i believe, next outing on the 9th of June we hope, and the slicks are coming....all in all....the day was a wash, lots of people, more spectators and cars in the pits than racers.....o joy. Track will hook, just need the slicks. David also had his issues....

Was that Sunday? If so, my MSD box died the same day at Leakesville. Talk about bad luck going around.

The 18th I think it was, I had a TFI module shit the bed on the way to the track. It was cutting out at the top of every gear, and just didn't have the normal pull it normally does. First pass was an 8.1@84 I think. Similar to best time I'd ran, but down on MPH, next pass was slightly worse, and next was even worse, so didn't even try anymore. Got the new module from Oreilly's, old one was still under warranty, that's number 3 I think in about 15 months. We're going to give it another try June 9th. Hoping for some high 7's out of my pig.

Just a quick update................Micheal has 4/5 "race/street" cars like me and David and doesnt get to run that much since he's off pirating most of the time but he did get back up to the track and made a few "decent" passes with this car..........7.63@87 was his best and a few high .60's low .70's but it still has some more in it if we can ever get it to the track when its prepped decent and the air is good...........these runs were made around august or so...........
