I would like to run my car sometime soon, perhaps this is the excuse I've been looking for. :-)

Think I'll sneak a dyno session in at some point too.

Let get all we can to go, even if you don't run (which you should) lets have a tons of Fieros in the parking lot at least.
After I finally got my struts in I found I have a bad output bearing in the transmission, hopefully I can swap that out before, or just swap trans, if not I will still run, I may grenade it at the track, but it wouldn't be the first. Either way tis' a good story, and will be good times.

And Don't be afraid to run a stock Fiero, the cars I beat with my old duke was just funny. (I pointed and laughed at the next light)

Can't wait! If mine wasn't dumping oil out as fast as I poured it in would definitely be running. Will still be watching though! What time is everyone going out?

I'm good to go, been looking forward to it. I've been doing a ton of program work over the last few weeks. Now I just have to see how it does on the track, and figure out how first gear is going to work.

Was a cold track alright! But we still had fun! Only got two runs in. I launched too soft this run but did pretty well otherwise.

60' 2.246
330' 5.789
12.850 @ 116.47
3.4 DOHC Turbo, 88 GT with F40 transmission. 15.5 PSI

With such a crummy start, I was surprised that your time was as quick as it was. That engine must wind up pretty good!

My first run was all tire spin throughout first gear and a bit into second. That run was pathetic. I didn't want to risk doing the same thing on my second and last run of the night. So I rolled out very softly.

The audio and video (especially considering this was night) was pretty good. What did you shoot that with?
