    For those of you that didnt make it out here to the track, the contest was crazy and there was a gremlin doing a wheelie with no wheels touching the ground. Heres the clip I took

    One car took a very hard spill when it lost control during the wheelie. VERY NICE EVENT 8)

    Hey Primate are you talking about this guy http://www.ddavisart.com/ByronDragway/race21.jpg
    he only made one pass in the competition but it was pretty crazy, didnt get my camera out in time. Yeh Ace, it was sorta a last minute thing, i didnt even realize it was going on till my friend called me up last night and told me about it. Seems like alot of cars was having trouble out there. I saw alot of engine catch on fire and a few get pretty swirly. The gremlin forfeited in the finals after something broke and oil started pouring out in the staging lanes, but then I guess he managed to get it fixed for the wheelie comp. Also I like the Hamstra 1/8 car, did 4.14 at 180mph

    It's an hour and a half for me. 5litereater is 5 mins from my house too. I could take mine out there depending on road conditions. I haven't driven it in over 2 months, been redoing my interior from the ground up.

    If you want to check it out around that time frame, email me about a week before so I can make sure my schedule is clear and I'll go. Maybe I can get Primate to go too.

    The gremlin was in Car Craft a few months ago... seems the car has a habit of snapping control arms and such when it comes down. All the same, three words...

    BIG

    STUPID

    FUN!!!!
