Never going to understand why people would want to tow their car to the track. I rather have the fun of driving it there and back.

Do always have friends with trailers that come too though. Never know.

But anyways beautiful car! Wish I was turbo. T-T

Hey man! I see your from the Muncie area. I am from New Castle but I am living in Texas right now. Maybe after I move home in a couple years we can get together out at the track.

it's because the car arrives cool and the operator doesn't have to fight cooling the motor down the whole time while there and if it breaks you don't return on foot

No dyno time as of yet. Maybe next year. Prepping a shortblock this fall for "Just-in-case" situation next year.

I only trailered the car once. It was mostly because I thought the car might actually hook and have half a chance at snapping something, but alas... Nittos don't like to hook on unprepped track...

The car has been driven to the track and back every other time it's been there and done any work. I love driving my fox. ^_^

Sounds like fun man! I actually live in Northern IN, kinda wish I lived in the Albany/Muncie area, would be pretty sweet to go to the track every weekend.

What heads and cam are you running? If you were to hook hard enough and get a tune on that you should be in the mid 11's easily. As MJR said you have the MPH to do it.
