Drag Racing Pro Sport Compact Series

I had a great time racing yesterday at the PSC series event. We ran smart and just ran fast enough to beat the competition and made it almost to the finals, last race before the finals, have a fast car to race, I give it all she has out of the hole and pull my best ever 60' time of 1.73 and I am set up for a nice run and then at the top of second gear, POW, blew out an Intercooler coupler, blew it to bits...

It was fun, but it really sucks to get so close and then have a failure like that on possibly my best run ever

So cool. Nice work.

I've popped my fair share of loose IC hoses off, but never blown one up!! Congrats!

Congrats on getting that far.

Keep setting new standards so that we can brag to others about how fast Saabs are

Very sweet! I saw a picture of the intercooler coupler... A 4 ply coupler is not easy to do what you did to .
