First race is next week. I'm gonna try for the 8.50 index. I need to change a few things on the truck and I think I can get there. Felt good to be back in the seat

Cool. When I was a kid I had an uncle that used to ice race his sled. I do recall helping put in a lot of those screws one night.

I burn more gas warming it up than racing... It's 1/8 mile. Usually about 30 minutes to get the oil pan up to 140 if I don't use the pan heater... It was almost 30 this last Saturday so that was pretty warm for this time of year... I like to put the truck on jack stands and run it through the gears at fast idle to get the gear and trans oil moving around also.... It's a necessary evil

That's some crazy stuff. I'd love to see the pics of the screws. Just seems crazy as hell but probably normal for the guys up north.

Don't mind at all... Lots of work to make a set... About 40 lbs of screws... Many hours and beers but sure beats sitting in the house watching drag racing on TV Smile

This has to be the coolest thing as far as winter racing goes. I had never even heard of this before until you posted on Facebook. Pretty cool Cody!

I think I would lose my mind lol.  Do you do all four tires?  A buddy of mine years back did a set of dirtbike tires from the outside with TEK screws for prowling the streets at night in the snow Laughing

Just the rears get the drywall screws.. The fronts get about a hundred hex head sheet metal screws each with the heads exposed. Just enough for a little control and stopping my tank
