front wheels up and hauling the mail!

Just got back from the track and had a great night. Ended up dialing a 10.63 in the second round. Had a .023 light 1.432 60ft with a 6.70 1/8 at 101.31mph and broke out with a 10.621 at 124.17mph. Now if I can only learn to bracket race.
Joe tell your Dad the timing worked great and thanks again! I also brought the air pressure up to 13psi thanks to nuclearcobra(Bryan) and the car hooked great.
Hmmm! Wonder if the Evan brothers can get me in the nines with new cam and head work?
Bryan had a great night also but I'll let him tell is story.

Time for another coffe Dan.....that's 1/4 MPH

Way to go Mel. You do realize that you have picked up over 4 tenths in the last few weeks. You are a man on a mission. Keep up the good work.
