This is a collection of Marc Struhl's postings to the So Cal DSM e-mail list over the years that he was drag racing his 95 GSX. His story illustrates the importance of tuning and practice instead of throwing more parts at a car. It starts out with a good quick basic mods car running mid 13's. Have a seat and read through to the end.
