staging race
« on: January 12, 2013, 09:07:15 PM »

My friend has decided to stage a race series between my car, a 2000 eclipse gt, a 1999 Camaro v6, and a 2008 mustang gt which I raced before cams starting at  65 mph  ehich kinda sucked but could be a different story from a standstill, im fairly confident I can  take the Camaro not sure about the eclipse but this whole thing is just so the kid with the Camaro can learn his place

So are you saying, this time, it's all from a dig?

Looked up specs online... The mustang's a good 100 HP & lb/ft extra so I'm not expecting anything different. The Mitz is some 600-something pounds lighter so I wouldn't count on a win, but that Camaro is toast like you said.  :icon_lol: What have you done to your car?

Take it to the track.  ;)


Don't underestimate a V6 Camaro/Firebird if it's a 5 speed with an excellent driver. They turn pretty respectable times with a nice launch.

Same problem here. Probably costs more in gas to get my car across the bay than the entry fee, plus its an eighth-mile (the road ends feet before a crossing dirt road followed by a corn field, lol), plus its only Friday evenings and I just want to go home after class... Nearest full is in Biloxi, maybe 2/3 hours west? :icon_cry: Closed Emerald Dragway, closed Atmore dragway...Never actually set up races and sure wish there was a better way, though.

Last resort would be asking local municipality nicely if we can close down the airstrip once a week for some fun..... :laugh:
