Their might even be a slight tail wind because the storm just passed and surprisingly traction looks good!

All I can say is what an awesome night…sorry for the delayed results as I was tired driving home.

I was so surprised in the first run of the night I was very aggressive with the launch and the car still bogged. The 2nd run I hit the nail right on the head with an awesome launch, perfect amount of clutch slip to keep the rpm up but also get the car going. It did a 1.81 60 foot on that run. The 3rd run im not sure if the track went away or I just offed the clutch too quick but it spun pretty decently but still a better pass than I ever expected to make.

1.92 60’ 12.68 111.83
1.81 60’ 12.31@112.86
1.99 60’ 12.79@112.03

Sorry to crash the party boys, but the OP better be careful. Too many launches with racing slicks and he's gonna snap an axle.

LOL, and..? So if you make a post into an existing thread on the 4/1, that's just supposed to be good enough? Clearly no one got it, right? I'm just telling you one reason (the main one) why that is. By all means though, please shoot the messenger.
