My first pass my first time at the track I ran against a stock mustang GT and beat him with a low 14. Next run was against a 240SX...I was thinking, this will be a joke! It was, he freakin' killed me!!! Never thought a 240SX would run 12s! I got him off the line and then he passed me like I was backing up. LOL!

How did it go tonight?

Tell them that at least you're doing things to your car that are actually useful for building a fast car....unlike stereos, fart cans, body kits or big gay wings!!!LOL!:D

The best I saw was a ricer doing a burn out and his front bumper fell off and he ran it over.

I think that a lot of them have their parents buying and fixing the cars up for them...hence the cosmetics vs. go fast stuff.

Only import guys would make fun of a muscle car in progress. I would have encouraged you to stick with it until you get it exactly the way you want it.

Dont worry about the jokes . Keep on making that car the way you want. Real car guys can appreciate that work.
