Northstar Drag strip in Denton. $10 to get in and $5 for a tech card.

Thanks man. I am hoping to improve my 60's with the new shocks and struts and hoping the new power gets me into the 6.50's. I have high hopes, but either way, just out to have a good time.

The red door pockets are factory. That was a tenth anniv. thing. Along with the seats. The previous owner did that god awful painting of the bezels. I am replacing them this year. I've tolerated it, but I can't stand it anymore.

Well yesterday kind of sucked but I knew the day was coming. Clutch let go on the only pass I made. Launched, yanked the wheels (nice and straight to my surprise), clutch slipped hard at around 5500, hit the rev limiter, let out went into 2nd nice and easy and rolled back into it, slipped again at 5k, eased to third and rode it out to 5k. Ran a 7.3 at 102. The car pulled hard as hell up for slipping the clutch, so when I put in the McLeod twin disc this week, I will be set.

The new shocks and struts were awesome. Pulled both wheels nice and straight and planted hard. Fronts were at 0 and rears at 4. I am going to play around with the settings and see what the car likes after I get the new clutch in.

I 60'ed 1.8. I thought since the I yanked the wheels that my 60 would have showed better ( I 60 1.49-1.50 consistently), but Brad from HPP said I hit the rev limiter and let out 30 feet out, then rolled back into it. But I think there are 1.38-1.45 60's in it now because of the shocks and struts. Its a totally different car with them.
