New England Dragway

Has anyone been to the New England Dragway? I'm looking at their website, but I can't find any pricing or hours for the Wednesday and Friday Street Nights.

As they require radiator overflow tanks, do you know of any guides for installing one in our cars?

You're kidding right? Every car made today has a coolant expansion tank (including ours). The requirements is for old school cars which may not have come from the factory with an overflow tank. In case of overheating the don't want coolant spilling on the track.

Yes, I understand the all cars have a coolant resevoir, which allows for expansion of coolant. I have never heard the resevoir called an overflow tank, hence my question. Thank you for verifying that they are one and the same.

No worries. About the only thing you will need is a helmet. It's required for any car running 13.5 or lower.

It's actually required in any car running 13.99 or quicker per NHRA rules, but some tracks are more lax on enforcing this than others.

My bad I knew it was 13.xx. It would be nice to get a bunch of 2er's together to go up one night. The NE forum is a ghost town though so it's highly unlikely.

There are a few lol. I've been on a couple of runs with forum members and some BMW CCA events so don't give up hope.
