    Yep.... they sent everybody that depressing e-mail a few hours ago. I think the problem is Fontana is such a nasty track to race at: high elevation, high temperatures, high humidity, polluted area (industrial surroundings), sometimes bad track prep, etc.... Also, they do enforce all NHRA rules even during private events Click here to enlarge

    Congrats to JRCart for getting this done and Weistec Engineering for getting it running. The results are looking great.

    It does sound like the East Coast is the best solution to getting the car run at it's potential and getting it geared up at the track.

    I agree with your line of thinking but the tranny seems to be taking it.

    Hope you're right... these things have a way of changing, back and forth, back and forth, up until around a day or so in advance - after which they're usually almost right.

    We aren't going to know until Thursday LOL. Right now there's a 50% chance of rain. What worries me is that MIR usually has the weather we do in CBus, OH the day prior, and it's raining now and won't stop for another 4 days. Click here to enlarge

    Yeah, in Philly (western 'burbs) we usually get Ohio's weather a day later, unless related to a coastal storm coming up from the south. This time of year is a crapshoot for catching a sunny day on the East Coast... especially trying to book one in advance. Hope it works out for you guys.
