I got a very shiny and lightweight polished aluminum air tank from Jegs. I heard that using one of these to fill your tires is worth at least half a second on a 60 second course vs. a steel tank. Wink

Fill it with NOS instead and reroute the hose and you could be a lot faster ... at least on the straights!

- New rings for the race car, so that it can actually start under it's own power.

- A better trained driver.

- To come run with you guys again for the first time in years - last VMSC event for me was Manchester HS.
