    Re: Why Do Some Take New Production Cars



    This is my backup ride.

    I thought about the backup ride deal and if it was ok or not to run it if my car died before the event even started. My wife's Acura would be faster and more fun but it's bone stock and IMO that's not in the spirit unless you had a failure right before the event. My jeep has a stroked I6 and the entire drivetrain has been upgraded. I feel it's a more appropriate ride than the Acura since it is modified from the balancer to the rear diff cover. It hits the scales at about 4200lbs with driver and maybe has 240hp at the crank. Maybe it will be the slowest in Dd? Lol

          There are some great wheeling opportunities if Dave puts us through downtown Dallas on the way to Ennis!

              Maybe I should buy a new boss302 ,add a procharger and go! Would that be ok? I dont think we will ever see a lot of new cars that are not performance based. Thats what power tour is for...

                Just remember, there are .45 zones and .22 zones... they'll give you a ticket for shooting a .45 in a .22 zone.

                    Desert Eagle (.50 AE) or BMG?

                    I'll be real curious to see the map - there's no decent route other than I-35 or I-45 and they are both "interesting" going through downtown / South Dallas. Maybe they have a route around Dallas?

                            Better than your forehead hurting from the impact if you're not ready for it - they are the very definition of a hand cannon.

                              I like the phrase "street howitzer" although that reference from my favorite movie is to a scatter gun.

                              Still after Chicago Heights I'd prefer a route around the sketchy neighborhoods.

                                So the rollcage rifle clamps would probably be overkill then Bill?

                                    I liked the line "I'm your Huckleberry " from that movie.

                                    Saw a kid shoot a .50 AE at the range one day, he was shaking so hard he could barely squeeze it off. I was just glad it was pointing down the lane when it did. His idiot buddy was trying to catch the brass, they wanted 1.00 apiece for the brass at the range. I nudged the last wife and yelled "HOT!" ... he figured it out.

                                    Do we get more than 10 minutes notice on the routes?

                                      You get the route when you turn in your time slip for the day.
