Quick question for you fantasy of flight attendees:

Did they let you run the cars on the airstrip. The reason that I ask is that there is a show at one of the intl airports here in VA (a small, but REAL airport...not a little airport for cessinas, etc), and afterward they usually let you run your car on one of the old strips.

The only catch: if you spin tires, airport security will have a nice "talk" with you, and I think they hand you a ticket. That makes it difficult to have some real fun, but I guess it wouldn't be a problem if you left TCS on.

The rear quarter pic is a good shot showing the DG and CDC louvers.

You were being flanked by the DG's.

ATTN: Ultralite guys.....

Can you guys do me a favor and check to see the position of your lcas.
Are they level?
Angled downward towards the axle?
Angled downward towards the front of the car?

I checked mine last night and they appear to be level. If they are angled in any way it's to subtle to tell unless I get under there with a level. I was just checking mine out because I was considering LCA's. After seeing how level they look I guess I don't need them unless I want something to brag about.

You're talking about the LCA just back of the jack stand, right?

I'll check it out either later today or tomorrow for you.

I have a suspicion that mine will be exactly like yours though.

On another note, the Knotts show starts at 10am, same time the park opens. I'm planning on getting there somewhere around 9:30ish with the family. I'll be sending them in the park while I attempt to get sunburned hangin out with you.

Cool. I'll probably be heading out from SD at around 6-7. I hope it stays overcast like it's been these past few days. It'll be good for us and for any black stangs. Black cars always look best on overcast days IMO.

except mine is better...

So if I'm not entering into the show what time should I be there. I'll probably help out BCMC while I'm at it for a short time too.

Well the show doesn't open to spectators till 10 so I'd say getting there anytime earlier than 9:30 would be pointless.

Cool! Brian will be able to kick down some extra discounts on club t-shirts!

Unless he wants better parking. Being a Sunday, the parking lot will be packed not only from the amusement park crowd, but because Knotts will loose their big lot to the carshow.

$40 for 2 runs if you don't care about your A/F Ratio like I do. Can't beat that!

I'd go for it too. I forgot was I was quoted for 2 pulls, but it was well over a $100.
