Headed to the track tomorrow.

Well guys, I'm headed to the track tomorrow morning with the Maverick for the first time ever. Gotta get some shakedown runs on it and see how it runs. I'll keep ya posted on what/how it goes. Wish me luck! Thanks, John.

Got back late last night from the races, and all in all it was a good day. The car went nice and straight and I never had to use 1 tool on it all day. I made 5 runs, and so far the best was a [email protected] with a 1.32 60ft. There is a lot more in it. I should be able to get easy .40's-.30's with some tuning and some new rubber. Thanks for the kind words guys! Man, I forgot how good it feels to launch a quick car! John.
