good day racing made it to the final 8 out or 32

Well we went to the track today and they were having problems at the 1000 foot mark due to water. So they cut it down to a 1/8 mile race and one time trial.

I was WTF I have no data at all for this, so for the time trail I tried to run it out in 2nd gear (note to self don't ever try this EVER) so 1st round was a guess but I hit a okay light and just put a fender on them so the next round I did the same thing and won, but luck ran out oin the next race same light but the other guy had a .010 better light and I pushed it a little to much and broke out.

Funny thing are my lights...
TT .077
1RD .066
2RD .066
3RD .066

I did something right now just a little bit more air in the fronts and it will be right where I need it.

I did 2 tings today I stopped watching the tree when the guy in front of me is running and just before my burn out I give the hands a good shake to to smooth me out ( maybe I should shake my feet since I foot brake )

The car was running 7.60s with a 1.64 short times
The best part is last week i moved up from 13th to 6th in points
It's all fun
