Hi `Brendon,
Seriously, it's really not going help that much to go to the trouble of doing it... Unless, you are racing someone for $'s. (then maybe + take a good dump (LOL) I would just have fun & enjoy the experience... Instead of a 16.05, you may get a 16.o4 sec & not even a mile an hour faster...At least in my experience of drag racing in Orlando...

Those are good rule & I hope the track enforces them...There's a few people that race, that should not...

Lets see what other member's post...Wish you lots of safe/fun & enjoy the experience....Oh, keep your racing on the track (WoW, I must be getting old O O O O `No LOL >EnJoy<

Not often I hear anyone taking a 3400 W-body to the track (normally it's the N-body guys with the 3400's at the track).
Awesome stuff!!! Share what happens! And I am sure we can find more mods for you lol.
