Best school for bracket racing www.perfectrun.com Edmond Richardsons puts it on. I've had a few friends go and said it was well worth the money.

I think it would be best if you just brought your car out to some test and tunes. Especially if you have never driven a really fast car before and a new one at that. Do some easy launches to get comfortable in the car and then work your way up. Besides if your going to run under 10 seconds you will have to go thru licenseing procedures anyway. Just my thoughts and good luck. P.S that first time you run it out they wont be able to pry the smile off your face

HeHe, my Malibu is not a trailer queen, but it's only a 6.50 car, but i did set out the 2007 season due having cataracs and all the racing here is done at night. BUT, in Dec. i had both my eyes fixed, and for the first time in my life, i was able to pass the DMV/lics with 20/25 vision. with no glasses, i can now see miles down the road and i will be racing my butt off in 2008.
The Anglia may be a hand full but i've been there before.
It's in the trailer not on the trailer, it's got it's own house.

PS, my friend Jimmy Smith, 4 yrs behind me cuts the damest lights i've ever seen, regularly .015 and under, last race worst light was .011 in 5 rounds, worst run 7.00 class was a 7.03.

Zip.

I've been racing all my life since 16 yrs. old and still learn something everytime i go to the track. age don't mean crap if you still feel good, i'm knocking on the door of 69yrs. old, and am in the process of building a blown alcohol Anglia.
I think the schools are good if you're going professional racing, in a super fast and dangerous car. But for the 1,000's of racers that make up drag racing (not the pro ranks) they cost too much money for too little gain.

I had car problems once and ended up running the truck that I use to haul it down there instead of the car....radio on, air conditioning..put it in overdrive and held her to the floor. Went a couple of rounds( running trophy) then a buddy suggested I lower the tailgate and I broke out....it was almost more fun than running the car because everyone knew it couldn't get out of it's own way.... We even took shoe polish and put a big white stripe on the tire .
