My personal advice for all car and truck enthusiasts is don't just park the car for the winter. Here at DezRacing.com winter is the right time to make modifications and dyno test. We just finished testing at New England Dragway about a week ago. Personally, nothing disappoints me more than delaying modifications and testing so that I can't use my car when the track opens in the Springtime. I have many friends that lose their street/strip cars for most and sometimes all of the summer. Most of the time, it just does not have to happen that way. For New Englanders, buy your parts now in the fall. Install them or have them installed in the early-winter(generally shops are slower in the Winter and can pay more attention to their customers then.) Complete the installs by late winter including dyno testing.(It does not have to be nice weather to dyno test and tune cars.) When late March arrives you are ready to go. Just take the cover off the car, roll the car out of the garage, and start banging gears!!! For the hard core racers, tracks in New Jersey are open most of the year. I may even make a trip down there myself this month. But as soon as I am done testing, the Winter Project will begin and the car will be ready for the first signs of tree buds and beehives!!! E mail me if you need any parts for your projects!!
