Something does not add up looking at your slips.

It is almost as if you had a roll before hitting the start timing lights. This could explain the improbable 30' time. Could also explain how the 330' 1000', 1/8 mile, 1/4 mile and trap speeds are so much better on that run. Also look at the reaction time, the longer reaction time could also imply a roll. (However, the slower reaction time could also be explained by your surprise with the different tree lighting...)

Further, the posting on your data logger seems to also indicate something is not right. I don't know if the 0-60 time you are posting is from the same run as the recorded 11.9 1/4 mile. If it is, it does not add up. 4.5 seconds to travel 214 feet. Then, as per your slip, 4.8 seconds to travel 330 feet. This means you traveled 116 feet in 0.34 seconds, this is around 230mph...

Your car is very quick nonetheless .
