If you find something you like let me know and I will talk to them. BTW I hope ya'll know the weekend we are going to be there will a home game weekend so the hotels will have high rates and slim pickens.

Unfortunately no. If you look at the points rules, once eliminations start, its an event. If its called for rain the points count for completed rounds run.

The chance to call yourself the best overall this season. You will recieve a little cash for your place and for contingency, but that is not all. Think of it as a way to market yourself for future seasons. Why pay for parts when some one else will pay for them with sponsorships.

Morse
11-17-2008, 05:31 PM
Kurt, I just saw this.. Thank you very much for the offer. I ordered a small set of towing twins today that are supposed to be at Gary's shop on Thursday.. I'll be at his place friday morning, and then in Gainesville later that night if all goes well..

I pressurized my system today and found a boost leak. It spools a little better now.. haha.. I'm still glad I ordered the twins.. I could see a manual transmission truck being fine with this 64-71-13, but for towing with a 12 valve automatic I just don't think it's a good choice..

I know this isn't the right place, but if someone wants this HTT 64-71-13 stainless turbo with the downpipe I'll sell it for $1200 and bring it to the Gainesville race..

SmokinRamMike
11-17-2008, 09:51 PM

Unless he doesn't show up or breaks down no way in hell you can catch him in points. You could still take first for the day...

Just to make me feel better my truck broke down and is in the shop with a bad ICP and a bad injector.

Looks like you guys should have some cool weather...should have some great ET's.

Remember no burn outs and no high speed lauches in the parking lot !! (For the rookies)

Well we're here and it's COLD! Well, it's FL cold ya'll... It's 27 stinkin' degrees in Gainesville tonight. But it's OK, nothin' a little "antifreeze" won't fix :D

Nielden has already climbed up to the second floor of the hotel, and I've got the pics to prove it. I have a feeling that's just start of a great weekend full of fun and friends.

Shambo, remember that sun I'm always tellin' u to leave at home so I don't get burnt? PLEASE bring it LOL See ya in the morning!
