Thanks Brett. I talked to Al at Atlanta about the 15'" setup but will likely hold off until next year.

FYI You are missing a few other BMR pieces that I have. Probably can't fit them all on the list.

Not fast enough for the top 20 drag radial section, but figured it was good enough to post for a V6 with automatic transmission. Had some problems in 2nd gear or the ETs would have been better.

**EDIT: BMR GUY, don't add this one to the list. There's been some speculation that maybe something was wrong with the track's equipment and this 60' is wrong. I'm not sure what to think, but if I really cut a 1.6', you'd think the ET would be lower. If anyone cares to chime in, feel free****


I didn't set any 1/4 mile records in the power-adder category tonight, but me and my P-zeros must've raced under a lucky star. This was my first run of the night, and the only time I cut such a good 60' time.

60 ft/time: 1.6041

I got more ambitious after that one, and a little braver with the throttle, but my 60' times didn't improve
