Bigray, congrats on the buy. I believe I have seen that car a time or 2 and it is a nice car. Good luck to the boy with the new car. If I may offer a suggestion, if he does not have an experienced driver to teach him to drive the slip joint car it would be a very good investment to get him to one of the driving schools. Slip joints can be a handful to drive and well, there is a huge difference between that junior and the big car. Hope he enjoys success with the new car.

I have done a little dealin with Mike too and he is a super nice guy. My only complaint is I spend to much time bench racing when I go to his house...lol...

Like Shawn said, the schools that you take your own car to are right at a grand I think and would be a great investment.

Have your or the kid drove a big dragster? If not, you need to get him with someone at the track that is experienced with slip joints. One wrong move snapping the pedal or hitting the brake too hard and the kid will put that car in a bounce. Too often I see parents without experience bring their child from the junior ranks, stuff them in a car and the kid not realize the power and response that the car will give them. I am not sure what your experiences are but taking it slow is a real good start. With the slip joint the kid needs to learn throttle control and being able to stop the car without getting into the brake pedal too hard.

(( learn throttle control )) heck its drag racing.. flat on the floor..NO IAM JUST KIDDING.!!!! .I really do appeciate yours and everybody elses concerns.i fully plan on starting him out slow,,and lots of chat time with other dragster drivers,me,my self,I am a door car kinda guy,i drove a altered a few times and i didn't like it,at all. heck i dont even like sitting in a dragster,much less driving one..give me a door car or a drag bike,,i wont drive a dragster or a altered, but i will strap on a 9 sec bike or a high 8sec door car any day.funny HU. :roll: :roll: but i may try a little harder to drive a dragster..now that we own one !!
