I love the look, are they comfy?

If so, How can I get a pair?

They're reasonbly comfortable, but I haven't been in them for any more than 30 minutes. Mine also have 2" of padding on the bottom.

They're pretty common and can be had through Summit or Jegs.

Well I put you on Wallace Racing and looks like you are going to be well past your new goal after the new combo. Because right now at 6.32 that works out at 9.98 1/4 mile so they are going to want to see some licenses because you are going to be flying. And with that rear gear do you know what RPM you went through the traps at because I have 4:11 and I want mine for the 1/8th mile.

I think, and I emphasize think, that I glanced down and saw 6700 past the finish line and I let off a bit after the line. Of course I was so wound up and am such a rookie that I forgot to recall the tach before shutting it off.

It's the perfect gear for the 1/8th and my car.

The license is a first quarter project. (We can do that in Southern California!)

One of the nicest I've seen. It's awesome you ran it at the track. Did it take along time to clean the wheel wells?
I'll bet it was worth it though. :wink:
If you do it again watch out for the cars in front throwing rocks in the burn out box. Again beautiful car. That's what they call show and go. No doubt about it.

My garage door is always open for you or anyone else that wants to stop by!

I wish I had a video. I figure I was pretty lucky to have a friend as the track photographer and get the documentation I did.

I've been threatening a video for a while now...hmmm.
