Drag racing is one of my favorite things in this world.
But it has it drawbacks too.
The hard part is when you have to race your friend and only other Ford there.

This has happened a couple of times and I hope next year it will only happen in the final round.

where do you race? i have a lifted f-350 on 38.5's, that is pretty fast, but over 85+ my tires seem to get out of balance, and i'd like to go take a couple of shots on the track, what should i do? get a set of stockers? have you seen any big lifted trucks on the track?

We race at LACR in Palmdale

Not to many lifted trucks running but who cares

Do you still have stock gears ??

I use Mark at Coast Driveline in Ventura , not the cheapest but does great work.

Our season has ended here but we have one MAJOR RACE left for the year and that is in Houston Texas on Novenber 11.

We also go up to LACR on Wednesday nights some times for practice , it's run what you brung for $20.00

I will post next years schedule as soon as I find out.

I also post on here when we are going to practice.

My Big White truck weighs 10K so it only runs 14's @ 96 mph

But you can race the Red truck and I won't turn on the NOS http://www.socaps.comimages/graemlins/rofll.gif http://www.socaps.comimages/graemlins/rofll.gif
