I have to say the Louisiana contingent was STRONG!!! Huge congrats to Chuck and Lisa for nailing the number and doing it in style!!! Great to see Jack kicking ass...sorry you didn't get the money run in today for the rain. Wes...you did great, buddy. If it don't break, you ain't running TX... Chris...good to see you as well.

 

All our friends were there...Karl, J, Doug, Kenny and his family, Burls in from NC repping BT, Mike and Sherri, Dale, Roy from San Antone...you won't see this but sorry for the challenges...you piss ice cubes buddy!!!

 

A big thank you to A.J. (aka "hemituner") for coming through in a pinch and helping make dreams happen...you're the BOMB, buddy!!! Selfless with tuning support...made me proud once again. Wouldn't have seen the big numbers without ya!!!

 

 

:D

I want to think Jack ran a 152+... It will take a few days for the Mile folks to post all the numbers. Then we can filter the results and post all the Challenger numbers. I only drove down for the day but it was a blast to meet with the old crew and greet some new faces.

 

I had almost as much driving I-130. The Fat Lady was able to stretch her legs a bit. There is a BMW that found out the hard way that American iron can run 150 in 5th gear.

...  Wes...you did great, buddy.  If it don't break, you ain't running TX...  Chris...good to see you as well. 

 

 

Had a great time!  Appreciate all the help from getting registered, tech'd, tire's changed and... of course... the front end modifications. I'll put it up tomorrow morning and see what all I need to order, I know the spoiler, lower panel, oil service panel, and maybe part of the inner fenders, didn't look that close.  Sure is a quick way to get all the lower stuff out of the way to get the front off :)

 

Speedy:  Thanks for taking the time with the logs and adjustments!  Learned a lot I didn't know about what some of the PIDs represented.  Thanks bud!

 

So what did everyone run? We only seen chuck and Lisa's

 

150.9 but I wussed out and lifted between 3/4 and 1 mile when parts started coming off the front.

 

Pit road fix!  I need to get some of that red duct tape, matches the valance and kept the intercooler lines in place all the way home!

So I assume that the shrink wrap on the front end is to keep wind from getting under and lifting off the hood???

That doesn't cause an overheating issue???

More like change the aero dynamics of the front.

Aero change.  No, no issues with overheating. The way they stage the cars although you sit there for hours you don't actually start moving until your staging line is up.  No issues with overheating, still pulling some air from the bottom opening.  I have a 180 thermostat, normally runs 183, my log shows highest was 204, that's tolerable.
