Sorry, Stan -- I awas on a different Maxton thread.  It's warm right now -- about 82 or so.  We've left the track and most of the other folks will have done so within an hour or so.  The weather for tomorrow says a chance of rain - but don't let that keep you away.  It's sunny with a few clouds right now.

C U in the morning.  Driver meeting at 8.30 AM.

Just got back home, was a fun event guys.  Unfortunately, the only person I ran into was Eric(racerx) as his bike is noticeable.  I guess I should of kept that ex250 I just sold and made the competition a little more stiff.

Maxton this weekend SUCKED.(for the blackbird super coupe) New clutch lasted until the boost went up.
The result is 149 mph.With the same set up has ran 191+.Had to go from stock trans to a after market.And added more fuel. Well back to the drawing board.
Oh Someone named Bill has a new bracket class 272 mph.Got to see his pass it was awesome :cheers: :cheers: :cheers:

I took a friend with me today (some obnoxiously tall black guy) and he was scouting around the super coupe.  He was anticipating a fast run but such is life.
