Didn't think there was enough room to run drags, unless they are running 1/8ths... I want to get there, but time is a factor with classes, start them again in the morning, went out to South Dakota for last week, brought a couple more cars home, as well as my two motorcycles I can't ride any more...

Yeah it's 1/8th mile, which is long enough to run a 7000lb 4x4 diesel truck don't ya think?

Heck, just get started, and the fun's over... I know, most people prefer 1/8 to watch because they can see the beginning and end, but I like the full 1/4... may only be a few seconds, but feels like minutes when you're on the track... Unless you're turning 10 second runs, don't hardly get to 100 even in the quarter... I like the speed more than the quick runs. I ran 15 second runs with an old 454 3/4 bias ply tire truck back in tech school, sure, it wasn't as heavy as your stroker, but had enough weight... There are quite a few running the quarter with their trucks... but the closest tracks for that are Cedar Falls and Cordova. last i heard, Cedar Falls had pretty much quit running the 1/4 for regular races, just 1/8.

Well its more competitive, and you will bring in more general population, and its less hassel for specs for class's...basically you have to be able to drive it there... and not drag slicks

I haven't made it for the drags yet, don't have anything to run, and get kind of bored just watching, I'm the kind that needs to be involved.
