Not sure if you have heard, but a bunch of Diesel Guys from the area try to meet at HRP on the first Friday of every month to race, and BS.

Someone will usually start a thread in the Texas/Louisiana Forum section the week of the meet. Next time should be Nov. 5th weather permitting. Hope to see you out there.

BTW: Boosted launch all the way. Spool it up to around 10-15 psi and let her rip....

Its always a good idea if you are a newb racer to stand next to the track at the tree and watch a few cars run. Watch what they do and how they stage. Better than pulling up to the tree not knowing what to do and embarrassing yourself. Good Luck.
