Well, as good as our cars are running with the low temps, traction is a big problem. I'm stepping up to a slightly wider tire and hope lowering the pressure helps with the launch. I figure the run with the least amount of tire spin will yield the best ET. As quick as a Hemi winds up, the power band it has at midrange would give a drag radial all it wants for sure. I will be keeping an eye on my car this week, I got home from watching the Saints game and the check engine light came on in my driveway. I scanned it with the Predator and it gave a code for thermostat. I cleared it and it has stayed off for the meantime. It never ran hot or even wavered from the normal spot on the gauge so who knows. A glitch. Gary S. says he definitely is riding there with me there, he's a hoot. :drinkingbuddies:

Needing some input as to where the Alex/Pineville members will meet up before the drive to the strip. So far, i'm seeing an 8am departure time. I can be anywhere in Alex around 7:30 to wait on you guys/gals.

I'm going to leave it up to you guys, either the usual meet-up or the old vacant truck stop on South MacArthur and Sugarhouse Road. I'm easy :cool: Just post up your suggestions on our site. I will be trolling it heavy the next couple of days.

Jack, I had the thermostat thing too a couple months ago... wonder if that's a common defect? I have one on order at Bunkie. They've since checked it twice and they said it's fine but the light has come back on a few times. Interesting...

Yours is still bone stock isn't it? I changed my t-stat to a 180 months ago, this is the first issue of any kind. We'll see, I have my Predator to turn the light off and read codes. The usual meet-up place is cool. I will be there early to meet up with you.

According to google maps the track is 144 miles from me going south to Ragley and then heading east on 190. I am leaving about 7:30 in the morning. Should be able to meet up with you guys in Opelousas. Jack or Jason keep you cell phone on. ;)


don't know how long you guys plan on staying there. but I will only be there a few hours then I have to head on back.
