Well me being the big time street racer that I am, after racing light to light and showing up at the organized illegal drags, I decided to check out the legal drags at the near raceway (Portland Intl. Raceway) and get some timeslips on the 1/8th mile. Remember this is my first time at legal drags so I was nervious, so I got to the entry gate after waiting in line for an hour and a half paid my 15 dollars and went on to tech to get my numbers and got in line for the high school class. Little did I know I got paired up with a 66 stang that was build and running NOS. (Remember I have a 1990 VW GOLF) well I knew my Honda killer had no chance with a built mustang but I was here for the experience not to win, so we get to the light we got staged and the light turned green and punched it. Right on the green light I punched it gave it to much gas popped the clutch and sat there spinning out while he was gone I ran 11.984 (horrible). Next race I was pared up agianst him agian but this time I knew what I was doing so I ran 11.296 Not bad considering all the other four cylinders where running high 11's low 12's, next race I got paired up agianst the same guy and did kinda bad because I ran 11.402 could of done better. Finally after racing the same guy three time the staging guy walks up to me and says "tell you what you go last and you will run by your self and you will go on the the next round" (remember this is bracket racing and the elemanations started) so I got a free ride and ran my best time yet and got 11.233, and my last race of the day I ran agianst a built chevy blazer but I ran 11.233 agian which was good but I was elemanated and went home. I wish my clutch was not slipping because I know my car is capable of running 11 sec flat. I will do I little fine tuning and go agian next week.
