First time with the Jeep at the track

Went to Pacific Raceway with TugboatChad and my best run was 13.07 and worse was 13.21. Chad did the Weight reduction mod and got his jeep into the high 12's.


Next time I will come with 1/4 tank of gas instead of 3/4 tank.

Re: First time with the Jeep at the track

Funny I had to do the driver weight reduction mod to get a 12.96 out of it, then today my first run at Bremerton raceway was 12.824 @ 105.83 with me at 245lbs in it. That was a -560 or so DA. Then my next run launched a 1.787 60' which is my best with a 12.772 @ 105.93!!!!! Man Im so happy right now, I never had a time slower than 12.971 @ 104.51! Solidly in the 12's and Loving it. Johan is the man! So after Bremerton I drive like crazy to get to Pacific Raceways cuz our boy YungSRT was there and I was gonna pack another whole eening of runs in but they cut it off like ten minutes before I got there and wouldnt let me run. It would have been very epic to run two tracks in one day.

Re: First time with the Jeep at the track

Simple weight reduction = subwoofer, rear cargo cover, rear cargo tray, anything not bolted in. You can also pop out the rear carpet very easily if you have an 11mm socket wrench
