Thumbs down took the Sprint down the quarter too see how she goes...

Got offered a free spot to race @ DragCombat so thought i'd give it a go...

14.1 @ 97 MPH...

Bald tyres, shifting below 5500, no good launch...

Very pleased for little mods...

Now i really regret having to sell her

THats incredible!? Still only 192kw? I thought a 15.1 would be more realistic.

Re: took the Sprint down the quarter too see how she goes...

Whoa! I'd be stoked too. They are such sleepers. Kick arse!! I still get tempted to throw in my current car and get a big-arse loan for one!! But I think I will just have to make do for a little while... Or maybe a long while
