    Why does it seem as if only your right tire is spinning? I thought you had a welded diff?

    Illusion I think. The wind was kind of blowing that direction. It's funny cause the other burnout pic I have, all you see is smoke off the right tire. Until you look under the car.

    Yes the diff is welded. It's all good to since I did my post race axle check today.

    You dug in good on that last start. It must suck giving people a head start. That could kind of mentally affect launching at start for some people.

    if you're at the track for tuning and times the "other racer" doesn't matter.

    I think I missed the Q part. You might be right about that. I never tried Q16, but there is no power advantage with E98 over E85.

    NO power advantage at all? There has to be some. Maybe not on my level. A few big turbo guys over here made the switch from E85 over to E98.

    I really do want to try an Ethanol based fuel. Maybe Ill get a chance this year to try that.

    That is awesome Justin, i love how simple yet so much attention to detail your setup is! Big props on all the accomplishments.

    I've been thinking about swapping my gtx76 for an evoIII, not to go faster but to have more fun on the street until i can afford to start actually trying to race my car. This is giving me more motivation, seeing how fast people like you and others get so much done on these little snails. Just need to fab up a new LICP and i should be back in the 14b/16g club. :D

    You, Phil, Shane, and Pneumo are all huge inspiration for me as far as people without shop backing or shop cars and getting it done!

    Don't you remember the old saying "keep it simple stupid"? Gotta live by that. There's to many setups out that are to complexed and just don't perform. My cars always have to perform.

    People always ask "what are you gonna upgrade next" I tell them "the car will let me know next time out" It works and I do my best to always keep the car running. Keeps things fun.

    I know I'm a bit late to the party cause Shane, Phil, Dave, Joe B, and a few others have been at this longer. I know at one time they where my inspiration.

    Do what you have to that makes it fun for you.
