Video of me at the track racing a WS6


Texas Raceway: November 14, 2003

This was the first trip to the track with the new built tranny and Yank PT4000 converter. The numbers aren't as low as I wanted, but the car has certainly picked up speed. This was the first time I've hit the 7's more than once in a night. The car has a lot more potential with a little weight reduction. The runs were made in full street trim.

Texas Motorplex: June 6, 2003

Tonight was a rare cool summer night. I wasn't expecting much, but Ennis was hooking very well. I got great traction for most of the night. No new mods on the car. I was running on 315 Nitto drag radials with 18 psi in the tires.

Once again, SLP brought their Customer Appreciation Day to Texas. They put on a great event. Thanks SLP! I ran a new personal best today on my first run. The car hooked great! I was running on Nitto drag radials. Check out the 2003 SLP Day pictures Here.

This was my first time at Denton Dragway since they paved the pits and lengthened the track. Nice improvements. It was very cold. I was on Nitto drag radials.

This was the first trip to the drag strip with the long tube headers. I gained about 2 mph, but I couldn't get the ET due to traction. I was on my Nitto drag radials.

Texas Motorplex: October 25, 2002

Tonight I ran the car on BFG Drag Radials and there were no new mods on the car. The weather was nice and cold, but the track wasn't hooking for me. I expected to run a new best tonight. I lowered the air pressure to 15 psi and still couldn't pull a 1.7x sixty foot.

Texas Raceway: September 6, 2002

Tonight the car didn't start running good until late. I guess it was a combination of slightly cooler weather and more rubber being layed down on the track. I did drop the Nitto's down to 13psi and did a really nice burn out on each run.

Today was SLP Customer Appreciation day at the Motorplex. Thanks SLP for the free day of racing. The heat was brutal at the track. On my first run, the car hooked good off the line. Every run after that was lousy. The car weighed 3,625 pounds with me in it.

This was the first trip to the drag strip on my 315/35-17 Nitto drag radials. These things hook great! I ran them at 22 psi. They stuck hard and just went straight. I am very impressed with the Nitto's.

No new mods on the car tonight. I ran on my 16 inch BFG drag radials. The track prep was pretty bad. I didn't have one good launch. All I did was spin the tires until 2nd gear. I still managed 2.0 60' times, which was enough to smoke every car I raced off the line.

Today was the first trip to the track with the Vigilante 3200 torque converter. The mods on the car were an air lid, ported MAF, Eibach springs, the converter, and 16 inch BFG Drag radials. This car is a new beast with the Vigilante. Launching this thing is unbelievable. I knocked off one and a half seconds from my quarter mile times.

This was my first trip to the drag strip in the new Formula. The car was bone stock other than the wheels and tires. The car had 1100 miles on the odometer. I was very happy with the runs considering track conditions and weather. The car weighed 3520 with me in it.
