FF/Magna forums drag day discussion

Woo. 12:47 and home finally!

So how was it aye? Friggen awesome! I seriously enjoyed myself today despite the cars constant efforts not to play the game. I managed a pathetic 15.7 which is slower than what i could do in my ea :( I had chased a runningproblem and fixed it recently but for some reason it decided to rear it ugly head again this weekend and seemed to get worse. I also had car troubles on the way up with the car deciding it had had enough and loosing all power on the trip up. Not too impressed when that happened. In the end I decided to just have a bit of fun and create as much smoke as possible on the line. Yagz and I both vowed we were going to sit on the line smokin untill they told us to stop! We did and it was friccken awesome. John had a good run in the DYO brackets making it through 3 rounds which brought him into his final race. A couple of times he was within .02 from breaking out. Among other things rob had some good runs breaking into the 16's with essentialy stock engine and running gear - seriously close to yag'z best times... It was good to meet all the recent n00bs. What can I saw top people all round! Anywho. time to get some sleep. I eagerly await pics and video's!

Re: FF/Magna forums drag day discussion

Sorry I didn't end up making it :( Mum decided to get home about an hour late, all the ATMs were closed so I couldn't get cash out to pay for the alternator, missed the turn in all the confusion of roadworks, sheesh Anyway, I had the alternator in by 2:45, I figured you'd all be AT heathcote by then, or at least close...

Anyway, sounds like you all had a good time. swoopa, that is Brendan Mocks supercharged beastie is it? What times did it pull?

Sucks that your car was messing up, Karl :( Can't wait to see it fully worked and flying down the strip faster than the BA V8s.. that'll put them in their place

|It was the mock car there but they had problems with lifters and had to retire the car early. They were there pulling the rockergear off attempting to fix it. They did a 13.1 with it.

Not really, it would have taken out the F8 catagory with that time anyhow. Then they used there tow car (green ute) to win the F6 catagory anyhow. Overall, JMM have an excellent showing.

Re: FF/Magna forums drag day discussion

It was a great day. I had lots of fun in my extremely slow car.
That burnout NZ ad yags did was awesome! I was in my car behind Yags pissing myself. It was good stuff!
