Finally made it official
 
So 8/23 I went to Island Dragway with Chris (Junior666) and his buddy Will (NYC_SRT8) hoping that Chris would post a new record. I get to the pay window and I find out they rent helmets! I'm in!

I managed a best 13.66 at 100.51 MPH today @ 2:56pm. What a day.

[Corrected via Dragtimes.com]
Stock Naturally Aspirated Engines
13.397 @ 102.523 MPH
Finally posted a real 1/4 mile time in my Jeep!

I also took this photo which I made into a desktop:

Let me get the 1st oil change in first! To be honest, hanging out with Chris at the track, I felt naked (as in no mods not naked like Elin). I already spoke w/AJ about some stuff, just need to take care of a few things (new sink, new countertop and new dishwasher) before I can touch the Jeep.

It was as clean as I could have hoped for. It didn't smell. There were no visible stains. I think it was on my head for a total of 2 minutes the entire day. I have to add HELMET to the list of mods :D

Nope.. everything is spot on. The only problem with going to the track is wanting to go faster the next time you go. Great numbers!
