    If so I will order a drum..
    You'd need a tune on any car to run it, so it would be free with the appropriate ECU/boost PIPs. The ECU tune PIPs assume you're already optimized on the best gas for your car.

      Running counter-clockwise, there were concrete barriers at the end of the straight on the day in question. Not close with brakes, but close enough without brakes to be a concern. (toward the end of the dragstrip). We had to avoid them so made a change. Perhaps they are no longer there. Just my 2 cents. Sounds like you have good layouts to consider.

        I only look at Grand Bend Raceway Circuits as being run Clockwise, I have been running there for the past 8 years.

        It would be wonderful to see the OTA return. The 2019 Grand Bend Schedule is filling up - Mopar Canadian Super Bike Championship Round - SOAR Motorcycle Race Series - Racer 5 Motorcycle Road Race Training and Race Weekends, Canadian Mopar Drag Nationals plus a few large Drag Racing Events. It may be a challenge to book a date for 2019.

          What may have caused the confusion is that your stated laptimes were counter-clockwise. If they were clockwise, some of this confusion is instantly resolved.

            Yeah those are clockwise lap times, I have never run counter-clockwise at that track.. I believe that when the 3 configurations Technical, Modified and Screaming Alien are run in the clock-wise direction (as they are meant to be) that Grand Bend is a very safe track..

            I really hope the series makes it back to the Bend!
