There are 2 spots dropping off on the 29th as they have reached their 2 year limit.

Any pass posted that's faster than a car currently on the list will be added, and the slower cars dropped off.

Hope to see some activity out at the track tonight!!!

Thanks to 5.0 LsX for showing up and posting an improved run. Get that 60' time sorted out and you will have a solid 10 second ride.

I have been on and off the list for 12 full years... I would like to see it stay. Sad to see cafords becoming less popular. Anyone remember 98cobra.com?! To be honest though with the amount of drama on here sometimes now I see why people stay away. Also less and less of us can actually work on cars nowadays. I remember when we used to post like crazy in the Tech forum for fixing problems etc... But now most the new cars have very little that the average guys wants to get into working on.... Just my .02 cents.

You could try and see if Horsepower University will try and promote the site on their facebook. Sadly though, with the facebook communities, forums are starting to die in general.

I just joined recently because I lived in the central valley and there didn't seem to be much happening on here from the valley. I think a big part of the dwindling participation is the stupid smog laws and cops messing with any nice foxbody that sounds good on the road. I went to famoso raceway recently and had to prep my h/c/I fox for 3 hours to get it track ready, 10 years ago I wouldn't care and would have driven it to work the next day but now I'm terrified ill hit a mobile smog or other BS. I know this isn't the proper place to bitch about this but I figured I add to your rant because I agree with all of your points.

Honestly the smog laws are not as bad as people want to think they are. As a smog tech, there are ways around alot of the power robbing items with newer technology available. Just have to do your research and get someone that knows how to tune the injection system up right.

I hear them boys at AED know their ford stuff really well.

What will it take to fill the Fast 50 list from top to bottom?

I frequent this section often, I have two stangs that I need to get on the list, one should run 11's the other 12's, just gotta get out to the track. I always work Wed since it's an important day at work, so it makes it hard to get out to the track.

Yes but there are not too many cars, you can make lots of runs. Staging lanes are empty most of the time.

I have had 10 runs on a Wed. As long as I can arrive early I am able to do plenty of runs. My coupe I can't hot lap because it would get heat soaked due to the supercharger and no intercooler, the coyote I have no idea how it would handle that, & my SRT would likely do just fine, but $50 on top of the other expenses like fuel, plus the time & effort to go... I don't think it would be worth it. If I had a trailered(& really fast) car maybe

Difference between a wed night and a saturday morning is track prep and air altitude. Trust me T-N-T is worth the money.
