that's the plan this summer.

hopefully it passes tech inspection. New England dragway is a very tough NHRA track.


I'm worried about not having a battery cut-off switch...........since I relocated my battery in my trunk.


Even if I pass tech, if I run 13.49 or faster, they'll probably boot me out til I put a roll bar.
I was already booted out before, when I used to have a GT3582r on my sky that ran mid high 12s (first run also) several years ago...lol.


So we'll see what happens.

That is the one thing that REALLY sucks about having a friggen convertible! I can't believe they make the cutoff 13.5 in the first place. There are dozens of new convertibles now that would beat that, and obviously people are not going to want to cut up their cars to let them run on the dragstrip.

That is one thing they do need to change!
