    My boss got his shop Camaro in... the Red 00 SS... 347" LS1 forged with a T76 and only 5psi lol... a whopping 550RHWHP and good for a 10.48 time slip.

    My car went 10.130, 10.134, 10.150 and 10.07... needless to say but they didnt want a car that fast. The bracket they choose was 10.48-10.56 :sadwavey:

    Either way I had fun... and got some cool professional photos that I'll scan in tomorrow..

    Sweet, thanks for sharing! :h5:

    Pinks All-Out is pretty lame on TV but it's probably fun in person.

    Did Rich Christensen dump a bike during this filming? :hsugh:

    Sorry I've been away from the computer lately... you don't put your car up. They run 400 cars and then choose a time bracket of cars and run either 32 of them or 16 of them. At this race they ran 32 cars and the time bracket was 10.48-10.56.

    If you get in the top 8, you're given 1k and each race you can bet... The original Pinks show, where you actually lost your car is no longer around. Besides, what good is a show that doesn't really make you give up your car when you lose :ugh:
    yeah its true...

    honestly drag racing is lame in person after you watch it a million times but I'll tell you what... I love EVERY pass I make and my car is only a 9 second car lol... Watching and racing are two different things.

    You tend to enjoy the sport more when you know what the rush feels like... /end
