Thumbs up I Ran a 11.59 @ 120mph (Video)

Not my best run, but a pretty good run with a 20mph headwind on an 86 degree day.

If I could only learn the right skill set on the strip wth the HP I got, I would probably get some decent numbers......

I don't know, weather was perfect (except for being windy). There were only about 40 cars that were running that day (Test N Tune)

Yes, we had a lot of fun last weekend. My video taking skills need some improving though. And thanks again for letting me take Rubye down the track a few times. That 2-3 shift got me every time. I have a new found respect for you guys driving a stick car - especially with 625+ rwhp... My Transmission is now back from RPM and hope to get it in this Thursday, so we will have to get back to the track soon...
