Haven't posted these, mainly cause they weren't perfect haha.
I didn't realize how haggard the car looked without a headliner, that's on my shortlist this year to finish up the interior. Also, I should have wiped the windows clean AND the visor kept vibrating back down and blocking the view.

Second pass is a firstname.lastname@example.org also with a 1.626 60ft. This was from Feb 26 this year.
There's really nothing crazy going on in these vids, as it's very tame. I could probably drink a cup of coffee while making a pass.
You'll notice the 11.30 video I lose rpm on the big end. I've pretty much came to the conclusion that the gas pedal keeps bending on me. Need to replace it. The damage is done, tired of bending it back.
I wont say anything bad your lack of head liner, since I assume you still have a little footage of me saying something my wife wouldn't appreciate about a extremely hot jr dragster mom.
I like anything fast enough to do something stupid with.

You guys make it look so easy. I'm a nervous wreck already about running my car this year.
Na, they don't really hassle you much, especially on TNT events. They look at the car as a whole, other than the lack of a headliner, my car is pretty clean inside and out, everything's nice and tidy under the hood, and it's always very uneventful on the passes. With that said, I'm kinda suprised they haven't said anything about a rollbar yet either. I'm not pushing it, cause it's a street car through and through.
As far as being nervous, don't be! Just go do it and have fun. It's all about routine, just fall in line and make your way to the front... Plus, we don't always show you the stuff that doesn't pan out so well. The day I did these passes, I hadn't been to the track in a year! First pass off the trailer, deep staged a bit too far and found myself jacking with the shifter and completely bombed it. So, I just hot lapped right around and tried again.
