    Yup, it was time to clean out the wheel wells from last season.

    Just shy of 5lbs this year, I'll have to see if the car runs quicker with the lower weight, LOL.

    Yup, I figure since I went through 5 sets of tires last year, it means I put 1lb from each set in the wheel wells & probably another 1/2lb on the rear 1/4's that I wash off weekly.

    I often get 120+mph wheel speed, doing a burnout.

    Good pile Greg!
