Hi there, quick update. I ran 11.2098 @ 127.3 mph at ODI Raceway, 4000ft above sea-level. I don't know why Drag times is showing as a track in the USA. DA was close to 4500ft. I think we should include DA in these lists as it makes a massive difference. This is what I ran at 7000+ DA at Tarlton, my best time there was 11.6 @ 125mph, but the traction was much better at Tarlton. But you can feel the added power going down 2000ft at ODI.



I don't have a video of the 1/4 mile runs ODI, but I have a video of the standing 1km run (0.6 miles) where I did a best of 170mph. This is is a run where I did a slightly slower speed as I sat on the rev limiter for quite a while (traction is an issue):



Hoping to run at sea-level soon.
