Are you using the club sled or renting one?

Co-pilot = Bad News. I haven't heard anyone who was satisfied with ATS especially their customer service. That red Ford (Carvahlos truck) has an ATS he had to replace it 3 times before it was right, and the co-pilot is still sitting on the bench at Pauls shop, it doesn't work right. I would go Suncoast or call MikeL and buy one of his kits.

really? i've been going through all the threads and everyone has like their co-pilot and ats setup...hmm more to think about! more than likely wont end up happening till the pulling season is over who knows i'd like to have it done by then but i'm still in the middle of building this 496....

Rich, if you go to the meeting I would highly suggest that you mention to them that they really need to speed up the process when they pull...if you go to NY or any pulls in the midwest, the pulls are only 3 min apart, they are like 8-10 min apart...makes it awful to watch, plus you see the same truck like 100 times...

I hope they get a transfer sled, if they do they should group a couple of the classes together like most other clubs do...I know it just goes in one ear and out the other, but maybe if enough people bring it up, something might get done...

i dobt my opinons will matter i'm so new they dont care what i have to sayi'm still gonna bring it up...i honestly think most guys except a few are content with 2 or 3 trucks in each class...less competition! wesport therewas something like 20 trucks in the street class and 23 in the diesel...only 4 super stocks and count em 2 2wds...joel howard and frank cole...the only problem with cuttin classes is..we'd be there for a half hour! thats it theres just not enough trucks and damien suggested a 7,500lb diesel class! they're gonna "consider" it...my f*cking god i hope not

most other pulls else where dont last all day...I understand what your saying that there isnt many trucks but most likely the reason why there isnt many people pulling is because this club is so damn hard on your truck!

if you watch the NYTPA, you'll see a truck a tractor once, unless its in a pull off, which usually they have a floating finish line anyways...the sled is rough on the motor cuz ur balls to the wall off the line and your just creepin at the end(just like in your vid at westport, ****in revvin the piss outta your truck and going .5mph) and these guys do it like 6 times a day...

lol I know this is pointless seeing no one cares but if they saw how a 'real' NTPA sanctioned event was, they'd realize how un entertaining they are(or IMO unentaining)
