Thompson has really treated the monza good and Jim Curtis is one heck of a track owner he never hesitates to make sure that the track is prepped and safe as possible my new best in the monza yesterday 5.73@121 mph eighth and 8.98@149.08 in the quarter and I had a blast but I,ll tell you when you see something like what happened to Mike it really makes you think about the sport. So please use all the safety gear you can and do regular checks on you,re cars make double sure everything is as safe as you can make it before you launch. You know I talked to Mike several times yesterday and he had on a full fire suit and strapped into his car with helmet and all his gear every pass and with all this and a good cage he is still here with us . I know safety is a pain sometimes but take the time and spend the money it is worth it !!!

Jim is the GM at Thompson, a fellow named Ken owns the place. Jim does a great job an does treat it as if it were his own.

I got 4.11's in my car now, and can't wait to see what going from a 33" tire back to a 29.5" tire does to my 60' and 1/8 mile next year. It sure would be nice to get into the low 1.20's in the 60' and better than my current 5.72 in the 1/8 mile on motor.

Thats what I have Donnie 29.5-11.5 and the 4.11 does best so far, I am going to try 3.89 sometime but when I do I will put 29- 10.5s back on or what ever is cheapest lol I,ve been spraying an eighty shot but when I get the chute on I will up the nos lol maybe to 90 what ever put,s me right on 8.90 that I can spray all day. Or maybe go to alcohol thats cheaper than gas this is a low buck operation LOL After what I saw sat, I am saving money on everything but safety I may be cheap and crazy but I ain,t stupid. At least I don,t think so ?

Hey skip, I'm going to switch over to E85. It is 109 octane, and will yield 16.1 compression from what I have read. There is an E85 pump local to me and during the summer it was $2.39 a gallon. If you want cheap, there it is.
