Last year, we simply bolted on the LL and put ET Streets on a spare set of APEX wheels. Didn't touch the beat TCKs or make any adjustments....it was literally our 2nd time to the strip with the car. Our car now has stock seats, Nitron triple adj suspension/1200lb springs and a 3.64 rear. It was kinda setup for road racing before, now its all our road course friendly. It may run 12s, who knows LOL.
Agreed, and you did say that back when VAC set the record. My comments toward you were supportive and in no way derogatory. FWIW the first time I went to the strip with this car, using DR's, I hit the WR for any E9X M3 in the 1/4 mile, 12.1 at the time, then on my 2nd trip I hit 11.8 N/A and it still stands. My point was, in regards to your prior comments, was that you specifically were the FIRST Supercharged car to hit the strip and do it the RIGHT WAY, it wasn't a dig at you, but a major compliment. I just found it extremely silly that someone else tried to play it off as if you guys just went to the track on a whim and hit the record.

So are you going to let us know who actually called you a cheater here? I'll be the first here to say they are full of it. Trust me I've had speculation thrown at me from a certain crowd when I did well too, so I know how it feels, but please share with us who accused you of this.
