Ran my first 1/4 today.

I was surprised, I finally took my car out to the track to g et some times on it. Surprisingly, after missing second my first run, I ran a 15.17 second run, which isnt bad for just exhaust tires wheels suspension and intake. My reaction time was piss poor until my third run, 1.2, 1.4, and .93. Anyways, I loved the feeling of racing down that strip! The highest speed I reached was 88mph. Sorry to make such a worthless post, but it was exciting! I lost my goddamn time slip though :-(.

I drove down to my friends house in Wichita Kansas and ran at International Speedway, north of Wichita. Shitty track, but it only cost me around 10$ to run.

Why do you say it's a shitty track? It's a full 1/4 mile and it'll handle Pro-Mods. How bad can it be.
