Default Father and Son, King of the 3.7 n/a Hill!

My dad and I made it back to VMP last night for the Street Wars and TnT event. We also invited another 3.7 guy from MD who claimed to be the n/a king with a 12.77 time, auto car, with less mods then me or dad.

Well, most of the guys on other forums were skeptical of the claims, and the videos he had posted. After last night, well, ya'll will see the runs. He claims he was spinning soooo bad, that's why he was running 13.20's all night. The vid shows otherwise.

Also, his car weighed 3500#, dads was 3525#, and mine was 3555#, with drivers, fwiw.

We did not get dad's first/best pass on video because my brother had not shown up yet, and I was in the lanes with dad. But the new n/a record for our cars is now a 12.63 @ 108.86mph. I'm #2 now with a 12.71 @ 109.5mph. I'm skeptical of my trap, as most of the night I was 106-107mph, but taking what the slip says!

Here's a quick vid I threw together last night. 4am after the 2hr drive, so cut me some slack. No music either because I can't figure out how to add songs while keeping the vid viewable from mobile devices.

well, its getting cold outside again...****in reached down to the 40s the other day.  almost can't wait for the snowy stuff............................almost i don't have a twitter account nor have i ever been to a twitter web page (update: i have), but if i ever did decide to take the plunge i will let you know by posting it in this awesome little box of text (update: not really)! i like tacos lol...though between crunchy tacos and soft tacos i cannot really say which one is better.  sometimes, the mess a crunchy taco leaves behind is a little annoying while the soft taco just doesn't have the same taste... cake is so much better than pie no, srsly.  **** pie. ****ing

Nice video (track videos do not need music).

Agreed! They have several hits the last two-three years (Focus, Mustang both 3.7, and 5.0), new Escape, C-Max.

Good job OP. My dad would kill to have a 3.7 to play with with mine.
