Broke into the 5's today.

Mike and I took my car to the track today and made some real progress. The first pass was a wash, 6.90 @71.09, skated around and got out of the groove. The second one was close to our best at the Bash, 6.058 @ 118.11. Third one was a winner, 5.946 @ 119.05, forth run was 5.981 @ 118.73. The changes I made to the suspension are working, and we are gradually adding back in some timing on the launch and gear change. The track was not great but it was better than the first time we took it there. Some more chassis tuning and throwing some timing back in and we will get there . We were going to make some more runs but I have a battery problem I've got to figure out, so we called it quites for the day and walked over to the roundy round track and watch those guys tear up some sheet-metal. As usual Mike did a great job on the driving end. Thanks Mikey! I did some creative and quick editing on the video, turn out real cool .

It's harder than it looks to get those small tire cars down a race track with 1000hp. You guys will get it. Do you run a digital 7 programmable timing system??

Thanks guys, I see 5.30-5.40's on the horizon. I had a great time yesterday and I think Mikey's door car addiction is getting worse .

Nick, my camera is a Fuji S9000.

Travis, yes it's a Digital 7. I love the ability to program in retards, 3 step, and all the other features is has. I'm finally getting a handle on the hand held programmer instead of using the laptop. I would prefer to use a laptop, but that slow azz piece of crap I have don't cut it.

Congrats on your progress!!!! Keep up the good work & I am sure you will meet your goal. In my limited racing experience, you have to crawl, take baby steps, before you can learn to run. Sounds like you sneeking up on it & that will serve you well. Good luck & I wish you much success!!!!
