I like the concept of a swap meet / drag race day.

I'll definitely be heading along.

Anyone else joining?

Registered, paid up and ready to have a crack
Never run down the strip before so should be fun - be keen to see how she runs
My tyres are a lil worn but should be ok for this event - they are semi-slick anyway and figure they're only getting better for the strip

It's easy mate, stomp on the pedal on the right when the light turns green

Yeah - I'll be nailing it on the last yellow - and no doubt leaning forward trying to coax some more out of it - haha

That's what I've been doing wrong Graham!

I've got a 2-step hooked up this time. Might improve my reaction/60ft times. I tend to sleep on the start line

Maybe one of these could help everyone with getting off the line faster, I would guess Marty (Tuff 68) allready has one.
