New personal best!

Went to the track today for one more crack at the Bolt on's record before I install my VVT cam. So it looks lim I'm repaving the way JT! Lol I finally got it to dead hook on the last pass. Also ran two 11.53's and there was a steady 10 mph head wind all day. The DA on that run was -689. Car #11 left lane.

Damn. Jeff really needs to figure out how to get his car to dead hook again.
Well done Terry.

That's awesome Terry! I knew they would go 50's. your numbers are dead on what I thought mine would do. Congrats.

Dan I've got my spinning issue figured out. May have to wait till next season before I can get out Bc weather and time just ain't cooperating. I can see a 1.54 60ft coming.

A 1.54 60ft may be possible you have more stall than I do mine is only a 3200 Yank. I couldn't get the car to hook earlier today when the DA was even better.

One more question, are you still running the 3.27s? If so can you see running 10s with them? Or 3.45/3.91 be required? Thanks.

I have 26.5" tall drag radials so I think 3.45 would be better.

I hate your damn 60' and negative DA.

Seriously though, great work once again, very impressive.

Had it my mind I needed to run a 59 now it's a 51 and I'm a M6 Guy so it's a harder road to hoe.

But I got 4:10 gears now, sea level or below DA and a few more goodies so maybe just maybe next spring.

Congrats and super impressive. I think its going to be really tough to beat that time unless someone starts pulling all sorts of weight out. Would kill for 0 DA here where I live. For -600 DA or better I would go on a mass murdering spree. LOL
