Visitors:
Entry Free is compulsary! And it should be above Hundred Bucks! And Parking should be for 25!

Participants:
They charge 500 bucks now! No way! It should be 750 or 1000 to be perfect! This way, we'll be able to see only good cars and good drivers coming in! All the cars should be cross checked and certified by a leading auto mechanic. it'll help a lot in determining the race-ability of cars. Minimise unwanted breakdowns etc..

People who dont understand the logic in paying for this sort of races dont just dont belong here!

Latest rumours abound about a custom-built chassis and a monstrous Supra mill. Should do about 10 seconds if it goes right.

Still no answer?!

He isnt running a VTEC engine .. Its the non-vtec that i saw last running on his car .. Well we have to wait for this new ride in town then .. Havent been in touch with the racing community since a month ..

But i did hear about this supra mill on a custom built chassi and it would be shocking to know whose doing this thing up .. Actually not quite given that he had worked upon the supras since a few years .. All in all if all these toys do come onto the strip it surely will be one hell of a ball for all of us ..

Yeah I know that car damn well. Well, you would be surprised if I tell you whats that car all about...it is a stock car with custom suspension. Thats about it.

Ok, JFI that maroon balenos stock engine was running in the red 800 in the 2005 Speed drag...its bone stock still, only headers and k&n.

The driver made all the difference.

Thanks...

Hey Viper, next time you have a specific question, post it and maybe PM a link to it. Manson was nice enough to PM me about this.

To answer your question, only one driver can drive a car in each class. That must be an oversight for the knockout round.

However, if the same car is used in different classes i.e. forced induction and Open, it can be with different drivers.
