Smile In the 10,s baby

After having two horrible time trials and having no idea what to dial in, I put a number on the car that I have run before. Car left hard with a 1.48 60ft. a 6.88 1/8 and broke out with a 10.99. Slowed to a 110 mph figuring I was going to breakout. Now I'm wondering what I would have run if I hadn't lifted? I have a video of the launch I will try to post, after I get it downloaded. Driver was WAY off on the tree tonight. I'm going to have to work on that. Can't win races with those kind of lights.

Wink

I would say going by your 1/8 mile time it would have been a 10.73 to 10.80 pass without lifting.

Good job Mel. I know you have been working hard to see that 10 second pass. You have plenty left when you get it to leave a little better.

Good deal and glad i got to meet ya last nite at the track i knew that thing had a 10 in it and its only the begining wait till you get it fine tuned and yes that was a 1070s run or better one of my runs last nite was a 6.878 in the 1/8 with a 1.543 60' and to the stripe was a 10.783 @125.69 and like i said not fine tuned yet i think your gonna be amazed how well its gonna run when its all sorted out see ya next time.

Good job. I did the same thing bracket racing in 2003. Your mph on the 1/8 is a solid 10 sec. 1/4. Now will you be happy with 10's for a while?? Tres....

nuclear you will have a lot of talking to do. I have thought about the juice but I like the N/A route. I think though Charlie and Lem and going to get to do their thing this winter.
