Tody, when I stopped into the local hobby store, a fortuitous event happened.
One of the directors for the local drag racing club was in getting some parts, and the conversation somehow drifted over to the next days' test and tune. He happened to mention that he owned a Traxxas funny car and he was bringing it down to the drag strip to show his buddies. As luck would have it, he happened to be looking for a driver. I stuck my hand up and he told me to meet him at the strip to be the driver for his funny car.
So tomorrow, I'll be doing demo runs in front of an entire drag racing club. I'll try to get some video.
This is going to be awesome. I can hardly believe it myself.
Today was a test and tune day with the full size boys. oit of the box, I found the steering was way too twitchy for my tastes. But once I calmed down the throw and dialed in a fair bit of expo, it handled like a rail.
It was absolutely thrilling to be back on the track again after so long. Even with being super rusty, I put in a time that made the full size boys just gawk. I even got complimented by one of the guys there. He told my times put me into the super street class.
I advised him of a couple changes that were needed to be done and tomorrow is when I'll find out if they are where they need to be. If anything, it should put me in the low 9's, maybe the high 8's.
