Well guys, im finally doing it. i live about 15 minutes away from Maple Grove Raceway, where the NHRA Keystone Nationals are held every year, and ive finally convinced myself to test my car out on the strip. On August 24th, I am taking my Tempo to the track. Every friday they host Friday Night Grudge Nights, where locals can take their cars and race them for under 50 bucks. Usually, my track is taken over by sport compacts and an occasional camaro or mustang. well, im not expecting any victories, any hi fives, or any congratulations. im out there to push my car to the limit. see what it has right now. ill be up against 10 second eclipses and hondas, but i dont care. i figure, i can really get a feel for it, and also find out its performance. Im expecting maybe 28 sec on the quarter mile. im giving it an oil change this weekend, and filling up on high octane gasoline from now till then. i am also buying octane booster, buying a K&N filtercharger recharge kit, checking the gaps in my sparkplugs, and any other last minute neccesities. if anyone would like to add their imput into this, let me know! ill keep you guys updated and let you know the results after im done on the 24th.please wish me luck!
