Re: Formally Retired From Racing!!
i guess it depends on what you call racing-if your going out every weekend and comp., and stop, then you stopped racing-if just going out now and then to get a time, and decide not to do it anymore, thats just leaving part of the hobby to do something else, lol
after doing this stuff for over 40 years, i have no desire to go every weekend, wait in line,
wait longer if something happens, come back to find someone blocking my trailer-i just cant do that part anymore-but i do like to go to a track rental, make a couple passes, or some
special event, like i did for Pass Time, but thats about it for me-all the last few cars i built were street first, pump gas, but i did add roll bars if i wanted to make a pass-you can always cut them out later-my current 69 can run a high 9's, all steel, stock bench seat int., roll bar, and i can drive it anywhere, pretty quite, p/s, p/b's, 2K @ 60 MPH, thanks to a stroker LS/Procharger, 4L80E trans-went on a 400 mile trip, no problem-true, the roll bar
is a pita sometimes, but i tried to design it with being least obtrusive-i think they do add to the inside noise a lot, never had a before and after comp.
in all honesty, if i never made another pass, wouldnt be a big deal-i much prefer the cruises, just getting out and driving, stop somewhere and hammer a couple gears
