We will be at LACR on Sunday the gates open at 8am so we should be making runs by 10am. This could be your last chance this year to see an 11 sec truck as we might be taking Stroked Lightning back to street and show with the 22's and stuff till next year. Hope to see some of you guys and gals out there.

Cool, Gene... thanks. I'll definitely see if I can make it and let you know.

Is it going to be open for anyone to make a run down the track? If so what would it take just to make one pass (that's all I want to do) for fun?

They are running time only and it cost $20 to run all day long.

Gene i am trying my best to come down there. I am hoping to come and see the red racer and see what this new sct from john will do.;) I will bring a video camera, so we can put them on the web.

Okay I think I still want to go... if I don't burn up my t-case on the way. :o

I still got some things I want to wrap up this weekend...... so I am not sure yet. Do you know how late/early you expect to be there until, Gene? :confused:

Well... the day could have been better but I still had a blast, that was awesome!

Watching that last run with the good launch...... :eek: :eek: :eek: I swear, Gene, if you add any more power or traction to that thing it is going to pull the front off the ground. I watched the video frame by frame, it looks like it almost did!

It was a good day except for everybody there. Way to many people there racing, but it was a blast until some bonehead left his lights on and Ryan had to jump start him. :o Anyways it was good to me everybody and see the Red Racer launch like a rocket. Gene you should put a "g" meter in there to see what kind of "g's" you are pulling on takeoff.

A Big Thanks to everyone that came out :waytogo:

Sorry for the bad conditions and the over crowed racetrack :crazy:

The new tunes for Stroked Lightning seemed to be a little over powering for our setup :banghead:

I feel like I let everyone down with the 3 bad runs in a row and the 2 hour wait in between each run :slap:

O well a bad day racing is better than a good day working :yay:

Chef GeneGot that right!!!

Sorry I had to leave before the third run.

If everything went perfectly, it would take the 'sport' out of it.

We should mount a camera under the frame facing forwards on the red truck, like I did on mine that one time (see my avatar). :grin:

I think it would be cool to see a launch like that last one, from the truck's point of view.
