This first one is simply a good burnout and a good run. Best part is the show the other guy put on before the race! Drag radials, tire prep, attitude, stickers on car, all indicating how fast he is.
He did red-light AND run a slower ET! LOL!

This video is my first 11's ever! My brides reaction is good enough for me!

This last one is against my son. His challenger is a 13.5 car but he broke his throttle cable on this run!
You can see my tires are now sticky and don't need a good warm up!

Compliments to my bride for the videos! She is a sport! Her 2007 vette ran 13.0 with our middle son driving it!
Very cool!

You sure have that 69 dialed in...love how a vet just squats & gets.  That feature sure surprises lots of people. Those 17's make a big difference

Yes sir and thank you!
She squats very nicely! That second video she looks like she almost lifted the front end!

The last video the tires were so sticky I was pushed forward and had to let out of the burnoff! LOL! Just wish my son had a better run in the challenger! He did a great job building that car and it is beautiful inside and out!

It's not easy to get a car to hook  & go straight. The vets are almost dialed in from the start and that's why those half shaft safety loops are needed. I spent a lot of time on my Dodge and finally went to:
Lowering the rear, installed air shocks. But when I want to blast off I let the air out. Put the batteries (2) in the trunk & dialed in the traction bars to launch straight. Only took a few years Roll Eyes

I cheated and had my brother and his friend as advisors also!
Heck I did not even know there was a differences in how you line up.
My brother would come out and guide me when lining up.  Yeah, I watch on TV all this happening but I did not know how important it is even on a street car. What a difference when you are "In the Groove" LOL!

Either way, My racing is limited to every few years at the most. Not like my brother. My car is for street driving and now I can claim she is quick and back it up with hard numbers! All in street trim! However, on the street I still can not hook up that well.

The 17's are better for sure as well as just freeway driving! Less wondering and such. Does not seem as darty.

Fun stuff!  Cheesy I can also claim her quicker than Dianes 07 with real numbers too! LOL! I knew it was but still . . . .
