Xpensive Drag Race...

As you all know, I got canaried... the week before, my alternator died... (at the drags)
The dande drags, over the past month, have cost my pocket, $985. Hey Bassy, what sort of sub setup could I have gotten for that? or even worse, How good could my Manual have been?

That $985 is devided into individual items, below:
Alternator: $120
Rear tyres: $140
Windscreen: $185
Front Tyres: $140
New 2 1/2 exhaust from cat back: $350
new rear brake pads: $50

Oh, and I still have the leaky rack pinion to deal with...

Het Acid didnt know you had to get a new exhaust what happened there. Anyway at least you fixed a lot of stuff that was going to break anyway further down the track. Just think of this as a "Premptive Strike" on fixing your car.

DRAGS

Hey Acid, I know how ya feel.
My last session at the drags cost me an $850 diff after a 2nd gear burnout took it's toll.

The up side to all of this was that I had an absolute ball that night, I did some serious rubber smoking and also blew away quite a few commos.
I surprised a lot of people and since this night, most people have changed there attitude toward my car.

I know its a waste of money, and its a stupid thing to do, but its just a phase, so who cares, your only young once.

On the other hand, it has taught me a good lesson, and I have not dumped the clutch hard since.

REAL MEN SMOKE RUBBER
