    I dont know but I had heard that there was a mechanical failure of some sort, I left when the last rounds were going on and there was one cleanup per run basically, I wanted to be home before the bugs came out and before it got dark completely. That car did run 215 mph though at one point, I have become somewhat of a fan of the car, not so much the person though, so I couldnt tell you what went wrong.

    I believe Boostin broke the bell housing on the red demon, they are talking about making a billet housing now!

    I'm pretty sure I talked to you on Friday when you pulled up at the camping area at the track. You asked me about the camping situation and I told you I have been coming for 22 years straight. We talked a little bit then and a little bit later. We joked about not remembering each others names and you said you had a hard name to remember. I think it was Nevin... Forgive me if I'm wrong though. Anyway, hope you had fun and sorry we didn't get to talk anymore after Friday!

    How is there such a huge restriction on nitrous assisted cars still? Every small displacement auto literally needs N2O to stall up. Maybe add a 10.50 index class?

    It was poor prep, damn near shattered my T-case at Indy due to wheel hop, spun on a soft launch at Norwalk. This is a 400whp car.

    Sorry guys just got home from ohio late last night. Finally got some pics posted on the dedicated pic thread. Sorry no videos atm, files to large, looks like I'll have to create a you tube channel to do so. I'll try and get more pics up when can, these are just off my phone. I broke my camera before any racing started Sunday yayy. But I have to get the pics off the memory card when I get around to it.

    Yeah dude, I remember LOL. I wish I would have seen your 1g but there's no way you were fitting all that gear in there.
    This being my first year I was pretty unorganized. There was so much to see, so many people to meet, I felt like a kid at Disney Land.
    Hopefully next year I'll slow it down and we can chill.

    This was my first shoot out as well. It was great to see that many DSMs in one place. It was also interesting to see some of the venders and racers face to face. The guys from fp and fic where informative.

    I thought I read someone where there was an official photo thread. Guess I'll go back again this year and take more pictures.

    Have the official dates been set? I'd like to go this year, but was going to wait till I had for-sure days lined up.
