Milan Dragway Meet!

I'm heading to Milan Dragway on June the 10th to go play with the truck. Its a test and tune night from 5 to 10. Hopefully someone else here might be interested in going. I think Toreador4x4 is so we will have the time clocks changed from seconds to minutes ahead of time. Haha j/k Justin.

Milandragway.com Has directions and rules to check out as well.

I might have to come up for this. I don't know that I'll run my truck, but at least I'll videotape.

Im there Rob! I live 15mins away from Milan and work like two exits north of Milan.

Maybe I can get my 99 finished in time to make some runs in it to see how my new built up 4.0 runs.

Wanna try my drag radials?

Awesome Brain! And I would LOVE to try your drag radials. My truck does not hook very well, and it would be amazing to see how it did with traction!

I don't know 2 much about drag tires, but I would think they would be fine. All I know is when I run my 31x10.5's i spin them way to easily and lose out on 60 foot times. If you don't mind unbolting them, I would take them for a couple quarters.

What gears do you have? Im just worried you might run out of motor...going from a 31" tire to a 26" tire would be like going from 3.73 gears to 4.56 gears.

It would nasty to the 1/8th mile tho!

I decided i'm going to wait a week or 2 to go to Milan. The weather man is calling for rain tomorrow evening, so I don't want to go through all the trouble and not get to make any passes.

That's good to know. My main reason for going on a wednesday is to avoid people. I like when I can make lots of passes with short waits.

Is the NMRA the All Ford Nationals on Saturday?

FYI- If anyone is interested in attending the Ford Nationals at Milan, I just picked up some free "Spectator Side" admission tickets for Saturday 6/13. I got mine at Varsity Ford in Ann Arbor. I don't know who else would have them.
