Moody I was there , Black 71 nova 9" slicks running 10.10 all day ,the track was better than i expected , The cars that brake need to pull the F**k over and stop! 1 1/2 hours clean up sucked . As far as the staging lanes go , the did not run the lanes even I found the the # 8 lane was the best. Pull right up and run , Not to fare to the people sitting in the other lanes.
I will do the next one . Sorry you did not have a good time , What car where you in ?
: If you did not make it, where are you getting
: the stories of it being a good day / prep?
: My times got worse and worse as the hours
: came by, not only because of the DA, but
: there were alot of rookies with nothing but
: OEM tires.
: Alan that runs the private event is a nice
: person, but he seems to lack any control
: over the track.
: First there were about 15 cars that arrived
: before 8am, which Fontana Security Guards
: were nice enough to let them in and wait.
: There was no Tech personal available till
: after 9am...in which we were supposed to be
: up and running and to make it worse, the one
: Tech had no idea about cars and let alone
: work in a fast pace. Shit Bud used to go
: through twice the number of cars faster then
: this newbie tech guy.
: So by 10:50am or so, they finally started to
: run the event with eight freaking lanes! My
: friend and I were the first to line up and
: almost the last to run in which Pat McSwain
: blew a raditor hose and my friend almost
: nearly crashed! That isnt even the worst
: part of it, the guy that normally teched at
: Fontana was sitting on his ass when my
: friend warned him about possible issues with
: the racing surface and they did nothing.
: Lucky for them that they finally did stop
: the cars before the 8.8 sec mustang made a
: pass on that same lane!
: If you have street tires and dont have a
: clue about drag racing... $100.00 might be
: worth it, or maybe the non DOT slicks could
: get a decent bite, but it sucked IMHO.
: I'll stick with the Pro at Famoso, unless
: Alternative Motorsports and Fontana get
: their shit out of their asses.

: Great test and tune , Hope to see every
: buddy out there , Aram
