hmm, maybe thats the problem, you shouldn't have a carb!....lol

seriously, what kind of runs did they do, mash it and go? turn off traction control? did you ask him? next time he goes, at least drop the fron tire pressure to help hook up a little better

Sure, he produced drag when he took that headlight out. He would have been better off taking the spare tire and jack out... and driving naked. :D
