Re: Monza gets quicker ET:10.29

greetings all
Alex you missed a great day up there the weather was a bit casual but there was a far few quick cars there & made the day worthwhile, we will have to plan enother day up there & this time we will give you plenty of notice, it is a great cruise up there & back so we actually get the best of both worlds

Ray the toy is haulin ass thanks to your blessings but can you say a little one for us to get a little better traction as thats seems to be our shortfall at the moment, we have run a 1.521 60' time in the early days but yesterday the best we could run was 1.54, all we need is just a small blessing to get us under that 1.5???

regards
rod

Well done Rod and Mark for setting up the silver rat for another PB

I'm sure it wont be long till there are low 10's and 9's, once you master the art of launching without wheelspin.

Maybe it's those old tired overalls Rod? Try something lairy like this lol

i think its the color, maybe its time for a change & a larger size lol

if i can get the 60' down a touch i will be happy, a 1.4anything would be nice, the car hooks well & then as the front comes down it unloads the tyres hard, Mark & I have been playing with the susepension & pinion angles & hope to have it sorted in the next few outings
