Lark, It looks like you might need some coaching to get quick links into your posts.

I WILL figure it Out. the one in the 8.5 "racers post here" thread on YB he goes 5.03@147 and the thing leaves Straight and the front wheels look to be on the Ground. If you look at all the posts Tuff put up it looks like it starts Handling better each Pass.

Lark, here is a link that tells you how to make "direct links" in the "reply to thread" or "post reply".,. "quick reply" will not work.

I see the rules are stretching already. Exhaust coming out the body behind the front wheel, giant spoiler in the front!
This is what seems to happen to these street classes. Generally they start out as real street cars and turn into full blown race cars. I realize you must make concessions for safety but it always gets out of hand.
I was around when they started Pro street where there were actual street cars that were racing and having a chance. Sure enough after a few years there were full out Pro Mods running in this class.
Very nice performance anyway with those little tires. I remember running 8.5" tires on my 55 Chevy and they were considered big in those days, puny by today's standards.

I ran down that track a lot. Tongue
Making that a 1,000' track would be dangerous for the faster cars. I remember how fast that last turnoff came up when I was running there. It is also very dark down there at night and more light was needed.
I ran off the pavement making the turn onto the return road and messed up the body some on the Beretta.
They would have to put a sand pit there at the end to catch some cars. The end of the track leads right onto a highway. Shocked
They also had the worst staging lanes of any track I have ever seen, Maybe they have done something with that.

With a little help from our friends.,. we can do it.
I think quick links help a lot, cuz the action is just a click away.
Keep giving me clues, and I'll put up the links.

I need to learn how to post a video from a CD or VHS tape.
I have tried in the past with no luck.
