      No there were some faster cars than me.. I was in the bracket tournament where you tell them what your 1/4 mile time is and you have to get as close to it without being faster. So i was just a driving really consistent times. I wrote 13.65 and i was getting 13.7's. They had 9 and 10 second cars down there.

      I thought you were bracket racing, our cars are very consistent. Don't let these clowns dis you. I seen boosted R32's post times of 8.6 in the 1/8. You running 8.8's, THAT AIN'T NO JOKE FOR AN N/A R32. Keep up the good werk, hope to race you soon here in the DFW.

      Hey, bro !!
      We wanna geaux racing tomorrow. Got a clown at work who just did a Stage 2 COBB on his 2008 WRX STI. Dude can't drive though. I didn't go to Louisiana so I may drive to Kennedale tomorrow as well. What time can you go?

      I should run 8.9's but your 8.8 may be enough to take the WRX. Dude can't drive, for real. Probably his first time to a strip.

      Kid with the STI chickened out and you had a belt failure. I never switched my wheels and I need to bleed my clutch. No racing today, sorry.

      Besides, big party last night for me. Ended with fighting in the streets and cops being called out. Had to stay up late and kinda feel hungover. Maybe I should Slow down a little in my old age.

      Aww.. i just got this after i came back just now.. I was looking for yall the whole time but its alright! I was hoping to see some R32 action. It was so crowded the 1.8 only got to race like 5 times and there was a bike crash and a tranny failure with fluids over the whole track so it kinda sucked.. oh well!!!

      ya, that stuff sucks.
      Last night was rough, had to crash on my friends couch cause the cops wanted to catch us trip'n. Got up late and returned home for some Quality rest. Watched a little NBA tonight. Gonna clean my car tomorrow, gotta raise the front a little. Having some noise from the PSS9's being cranked down all the way. I'm gonna raise the front 6 threads.

      Sorry we couldn't meet. Get ya car fixed and we'll do some racing here soon. I'm also interested in some auto-x.

      Navy? Me and most my friends are NAVY.
      Got a few Marine friends too but they kinda slow and always talk about killing things.

      Just remember a few things:

      #1 they will sleep deprive ya'll and exercise ya'll to fatigue because ya'll will convert FASTER.
      #2 stay focused and relax, do what is asked and work as hard as possible, they WANT ya'll to succeed.
      #3 team work is the goal, when you guys are tired and miserable ya'll will become a solid team.


      Tough times help people to work together to pull through. Don't judge people and work together. You can NOT succeed in life ALONE. Bring everyone together as fast as possible and your time will be much better. TEAM WORK !!!
