Finished the registration in 5 mins...... not fast enough. Sold out.
Dang, this thing has become a race to get into the race. Did you get on the wait list? Good chance you will still get in if you show up.
No I didn’t do the wait list. I would need to but some stuff for the car and change rear gear ratio. So I didn’t want to deal with possibly having to rush at the end. Can’t risk going the 13 hours to see if I could get in. Try next year.
Got on waiting list that afternoon,knew I would be one of last but what the hell,I tried. Here the email; Hello, Thanks you for your interest in Hot Rod Drag Week. Your wait list position section is 251-300. Due to the exceedingly high amount of requests, we are sending positions in sections. Once your section progresses to the top 30, we will provide an exact position. You will receive an email from this address if your position becomes open. You must respond in 24 hours, or the position will be offered to the next individual. Best, HRDW Oh well ,I need to get the 66 dart done anyways so 9/18 is my dead line. Next year I will be on my shop computer and ready to register.
I pushed send at 3:05! Not sure how I could have done it faster, other than typing TBD. in every field except the name address and credit card.
Bumping this thread again. Who's still attending this year? I am!
We should be going again next year as long as Mike’s car is ready ....
For sure man. Can’t wait! See you there! How’s your car been running btw!
Unfortunately I've only made one pass since getting it all back together. That one pass smoked third gear in the transmission. Had PTC build me a new stronger 904 and just picked it up last night. Will be making more passes and tuning as soon as I can get the trans swapped in. How is the barracuda running?
That sucks But at least it went now. Not half way through drag week. We actually lost 3rd gear too first time at track in May. Had that fixed Been running solid since. Let us know how she runs!
Working on mine for next year. Starting body work this weekend. Hope to be painted by October so can start assy. Just a 360 magnum hopped up with a 904 at this point. Maybe turbo in the future.
Yeah that's what I told my wife. Better now than on drag week. Also wasn't too surprised, thought the trans was probably my only weak link left after adding the extra power with the Procharger. Hopefully I can get my hands on a 10 second timeslip before DW starts.
Ya. Get the broken shit out of the way. lol. Cool! Can’t wait to see it run! Few more weeks!
@70Roadkill What paint is that on the cage? Is it spray or brush on? I'm looking for a good cage paint. Thanks.
It’s rusteloum hammer paint in grey. I brushed it on the aerosol sucks. Just mixed it up and used a small brush.
That's just what I'm looking for! I didn't know you could get the hammer paint in brush on, that's great to know!! Did u use a foam brush or regular brush? How much did you use? Thanks for sharing, your paint looks great!
Brush and 1 qt. is more than enough. Just wipe the cage down good. There are several other colors, I liked the way the Grey turned out. Just make sure you mix it up every now and then as you brush it on the get the hammered look.
I'm heading out to Atlanta in the morning, the Barracuda is running and driving, but haven't made it down the strip yet. Should be interesting.
Sweet J. See you there. Are you doing T&T Friday ?
I've been fighting all kinds of transmission trouble. Went to start it lastnight and no fire, just crank and crank. It appears to be a bad MSD box. Got a new one at lunch so hopefully it runs tonight. It's been hell month before drag week for me. Haven't made a full pass down the quarter since installing the Procharger
No worries man. That’s standard procedure. . It comes together .....
Okay the car is back together. Will be loaded up and headed to ATL tomorrow. Hope to get a few passes in on Sunday after tech. Gonna be fun!
I envy you guys. Good luck and have fun.
Me too !!! Hopefully I make it next year. Keep us posted and I be watch for you'll.
It seems that they started below the max car count. So anyone who went got it.
