Default Track Rental Atco NJ Dec 9

My buddy and I may be getting Atco for the day ( 9am to 5pm) on Friday December 9th.

As usual, we'll have separate lanes for street tires vs drag radials/slicks.

Should be mine shaft air and perfect potential for new bests.

Any takers?
Scott

I'd love to see your car run, but I doubt I'd run mine again this soon. I haven't made any changes since my blistering 12.9x runs last month!

Slated for next year (If I don't sell the car) are LT's, 3:42's, FAST intake and larger TB, and possibly a stall convertor.

Sounds good. You're more than welcome to show up and do the spectator thing.
Those mods would be a huge improvement over stock. My only advice is to make a plan regarding your end goals before you open the check book.
Although, you can certainly add items as you go/build, it is a LOT cheaper to do it once and done.

It's on! We have the track for the day and have filled a half dozen spots or so already.
Still room for a few more if anyone is interested in a fun day out.

I'm not sure, but Tommy told me we'll have a nice showing from the ECS crew.
Reallllllly looking forward to making some clean passes and getting in some seat time with the new set up.
