    I'm guessing 13.5 at 102mph. I have a feeling I'll find out for sure when you go

    I'll go it island, atco, etown, whichever. I can't wait. Where is Cecil? Never heard of it. My brother said he called etown a few days ago and asked about my sling n said I can only run by myself meaning not next to another car and only if I'm bone stock. I gotta look into this. Island is my fav but I haven't been to track in 10 years since my mustang days

    Rising Sun Maryland. Best track around. People travel from all over for record breaking runs.

    I hate the " only ifs" at race tracks. Some are good when they are safety reasons, but when it is something from an unknowing person then it is not good. NASCAR has ruled and regulated stock car racing into ruin. They have tried to copy to many other sports until the grandstands are almost empty. Used to be people were turned away because the track was full to capacity, now NASCAR can't even fill a 43 car field. I hope NHRA does not go that way by doing the " only if" thing.

    I have been to track but my rear tire was spinning bad. I will hopefully be trying a new rear tire set up this week and going to 1/4 mile track again.

    I was spinning bad in first 500 feet. Probably going going 5mph at that point. At the end of race I was about 104MPH. Like I said I was spinning and tire really bad. So....it is not a good example yet. I hope with new tire set up I will be able to get true numbers to my Slingshot.
