UF going for a new PB?
He should easily eclipse his own record with the weight reduction mods.

He鈥檚 going in hot lol as long as track prep is good with the weight reduction he did should help lower his ET.
Other than the crossmember, what else has been done for weight reduction since his record run?

I am so happy to be able to see him out there. I may get in his ear and try to do a bit of convincing too...

I didn鈥檛 have to convince UF at all. Just reminded him that it鈥檚 all about the camaraderie not just making passes.

Didn鈥檛 hit a nerve at all, just saying he didn鈥檛 have to be convinced.

UF use to bring multiple trucks to Cecil for years so it鈥檚 no big deal for him to bring one. We have guys coming from TX so Long Island is a hop skip and a jump compared to there. Anyone who knows UF knows the $200 cost is never the factor if he is coming or not. I paid $200 the last 2 years to race a 14-15 second stock Gen 1. We鈥檝e been doing Spookfest for well over 10 years and it鈥檚 always a good time.

double din TV radio....but no door speakers LOL

He's got the opposite going on of my truck.....I've got door speakers (4 doors worth lol), but no head unit haha. Flew out on a 60' launch years ago, scared the crap out of me, and yet to ever replace it, gotten so used to staring at the dumb hole in the dash haha.

No Broken records today the weather in NJ was terrible drizzle and fog all morning instead of starting at 10am started at Noon hot and humid as hell for October in NJ. Any way off the trailer 9.71 9.67 9.72 and back on the trailer not a bad day for the conditions.

well I wouldn't necessarily say 67 degrees is sweltering sweat dripping weather for noon lol, but the humidity was definitely railed today and a 900 ft d/a which is high for atco this time of year. 9.6's is still pretty sweet (even for a 3500 lb tin can lol). How'd everyone else make out? Run the vette Jeff?
