    Ran 8's at 160 mph!!!

    Just completed the Super Comp Dragster course at Frank Hawley's drag racing school in Florida. I can't even begin to tell you what a blast it was! I raced a 900hp dragster for 3 days, and even received my NHRA Super Comp license - only 4 of us (out of 12) "passed" the certification process.

    There is no way to describe the power and acceleration these cars have. At first it was quite honestly unmanageable and scary. I got the "Best E.T" and "Best Reaction Time" award too!

    I'm hooked - going from 11 and 12 second street cars to low 8 second dragsters is the bomb! And the icing on the cake - this whole trip was courtesy of my ***** ex-wife as a Christmas present! Heh heh.

    Dave, that it bad a$$!!!!!

    I went to a 10 lap Nascar school, but the cars have chips in the MSD to limit them to 150 MPH. But going from 70-80 mph on a dirt track to 150 on asphalt was totally insane. I want to go back for a 100 lap class, but I just dont have the $$$$ right now.

    Did you tell your ex thanks????

    You should feel what 8.30 @ 178.57 Mph feels like on a Turbo Hayabusa.
