Bingo. That's my goal, though I want over 130mph.

I'm sure my first run will be a throwaway, but once I get the shifting tuned in, 10.7's @ 130+ or bust!

Can't wait to see what your new setup does. I haven't had a chance take my to the track either. It started with a vibration after my axles install, now I have to wait for the axles to come in. Keep us posted.

The Corbeau seat is from my GTO days, just bought a Camaro bracket for it.

BTW, the driver seat weighs 60lbs, the passnger 45lbs.

It's actually "feels" higher. With my helmet on, I hit the roof. But it's not terrible. It may be because of the straight back.

If I buy a more permanent one (the red matched my GTO but not the SS), I'll get a reclining one.

Congrats, Padre! Your build journal inspires me to keep planning, even if the 'real' mods are a year away.

Planning is half the fun.

Summary of the day:

10.788 w/ 1.627 sixty, 1/8th: 6.942 @ 102.84.

No MPH today (first weekend, needed new sensors). I guestimate 125mph.

Lots of new Mustangs today. For some reason they didn't want to run me.

Nice young lady got a great video, gotta wait till she sends it to me. No videos of my own. All my electronics were off today. Must be the solar flares.
