ok, that last one wasn't actually a win. But it was so darn close that the guy told me he might as well have lost lol.

BTW Satin Pumkin, I've put that hemi accessory brace to good use, I forgot it was you that sold it to me! The plate that goes between the AC and alternator.
Your Dakota sounds pretty sweet, the HEMI shoulda been a factory option. My 2 most interesting contests have both been from a dig:
New short wheel base Escalade, those things have over 400hp. I steadily pulled away from him.
And a 13 or 14 V6 Mustang, side by side till we stopped at about 75 or so, that guy was pretty surprised. Most LBRC Tradesman pretty much go under the radar!

Oh yea! Love sleepers. Mine isn't so much, due to exhaust, wheels, and the loud intake, and I can hear the cam in it, but I'm not sure if other people notice. Those Escalades are nice, and the 2015 model will have 420hp/460tq. I'd like to be making that much some day.

The most interesting race up there for me is probably the Golf GTI, it's amazing how close we were. We raced 3 times at the track and we were literally 1000ths apart in each race, but I got 2 out of 3. He was using launch control and tried manually starting it too and it never made much difference.

The G35x is a pretty close race too, but I've got a couple 10ths on him, and the Mustang only had me by a 10th.

I am moving 3000 feet closer to sea level this winter so I'll be able to see the difference elevation can make. I'll just need to get a handle on wheel spin.

Closest race I've had was an Acura RSX Type-S. Go ahead and laugh its just a 4 banger. He was lowered and had a tune, maybe intake or exhaust but I remember him saying it was mostly stock but that he had it tuned so the VTEC would adjust the valve timing earlier.

We were both on street tires. We ran 3 times and I beat him 2 of the 3 times. It was at a no clocks event with an arm drop start so I don't know what he ran but I know what I ran and I was running 14.6 and 14.7's that night and when I'd beat him his front bumper was at my door. He'd usually jump out ahead but I'd come around him and nose out at the end.

My girlfriend actually bet someone in the stands money on me and I won that race. When I lost to him in eliminations it was only by a matter of feet. I was at his back tire when we crossed the line and I was catching up slowly. I had higher mph all runs but my 60 fts were 2.4 which is terrible. If I had drag radials I would have jumped out and won every race.

Yup, got another one. Not very eventfull but made me happy and the GF ask "why?!" As alwayys. Lol


Left a stop light as a titan was rolling up to it. I kinda got on it a little bit and seen him jump in my side view mirror, he got to my fender so i got on it, lets say thats the last i saw of him. Lol.

Same thing happened with a NNBS silverado the other day.

I wish i could get another good race from a stop at a light or somethin...lol
