won trophy class fri night

Started out so so then made an adjustment to rear shocks and ran 7.33 x2 back to back well getting ready for 1st round the starter solenoid went bad and i got tore up i pulled hood off it started fine. Then i broke the ign toggle switch (cheap plastic) but it broke in the on position thank goodness

so to kill the car had to use battery kill switch by the license plate and to start it using a pair of pliers and racing with no hood can you say REDNECK

but i ran good all nite went 7 rounds winning trophy class and went down to 3 cars in the gamblers race when i freaking redlighted -.015 ish

the video is one time trial then me running a vette and the finals vs a 9 sec camero

The front end is bouncing on launch. Maybe give it a click tighter. I was looking at that on your "edited" video of launches.

Sorry hearing about the problems but still made you a winner at the end of the night.

Congrats on the win. Good job on the Redneck Engineering.

For what it's worth, I think the rear suspension seems to be working well. I agree on tightening the front a bit.

Nice job staying focused and getting the win. I may try removing my hood next time out.
