New 1/8 mile best with the 13" wheels.
#21

Sorry to bring up an old thread. I found this searching for something and thought I would post a couple pictures. I got my 1/8 mile times down to an 8.2 and my quarter mile times down to 13.1 without the ladder. I havent been able to run with it because the track owner said he doesnt want to hear the other racers complain about it.  Dodgy I was able to run with it at a no prep event though.

Wait a minute.....did I see your wagon in one of the "tesla plaid channel" videos on youtube? That guy makes a lot of passes in his tesla in Florida and likes to walk thru staging commenting on the cars. He made a comment about the skinny tires on the pinto, lol.

Yes you did. Andrew is a cool dude. I took the Pinto off the jack stands four weeks ago. I've been going to the Take It To The Track events for the past three weeks. The ball stud on the bell crank broke on the first run of the second event. I was able to borrow a Leatherman and I cut my speaker wire and was given a few zip ties to fix it for the night. I didn't drive 75 miles and almost two hours for one run. Hahaha
