Any Goats from around Fayetteville going to the track here anytime this weekend? I'm planning on popping my drag cherry this weekend, and thought I would see if I would have any local Goats out there to mingle with.
The Nam' is a decent track from what I hear, just remember on your first time out, don't dump the clutch! Let it slip out by jerking your knee up steadily, especially on street tires. Also watch your shift point, around 6500 is where I was told to shift and it helps ( I was babying it my first couple times and had low traps ). Don't miss gears either, it sucks.
The track is out by the Fayetteville Airport if you know where that is.
I'm gonna have to work on my technique for releasing the clutch and hooking up. I've also never attempted a burn out with a stick, so that could be interesting also. I plan on trying to play around in some hidden places around here a little bit before I head to the track.
Heres what I do to burn-out. Pull just barely out of the water box, rev up to about 4-5000 rpms and dump it in first. Once you start spinning take your left foot off the clutch and lightly apply brakes while maintaining throttle. Too much brake will stall you, just give it enough to stop your forward motion..
I just called and got a recording that said Oct 8th there will be test n tune from 1-6. Anybody from Fayetteville? Does that sound right looking at the weather outside? I don't wanna drive 2+ hours unless I know for sure they're gonna run...
Ok... I'm still getting the same recording. I think I'm gonna head on over there. I have nothing else to do. I may get over there and find them closed but what the heck. It's an excuse to drive the goat.
As a matter of fact, yes I did. I called at about 1pm and they were running so I figured what the heck. Drove all the way there just to have it start raining about 15 miles from Fayetteville. I cruised past an empty, closed down track. Oh well. I won't be able to make it this Sunday as it's my weekend to work, and I also may have yet another stripped wheel stud. :madsign3: Maybe next week.
