Slip#1 the DA was -1550
Slip#2 the DA was -1699
After last weeks 60' of 1.8X we knew there was more left. He nailed it on run 2 and set a new best.

Hey, I messed up and gave you credit for the 11.60 sec time slip. I saw your screen name and time slips posted and assumed they were yours. Do you know the post number for your 12 sec run (or could you post the slip?). If not, what was the time and trap speed. I know it was a 12.0x sec run. I need to correct the chart and link it to your post.

Also, you are making an official post (post #1347) for 02Pewtersix?

Thanks

02Pewtersix will improve his best time on the Bolt-on list to 11.600 and continues to be #1 on that list.

His time was accidentally substituted for Mlee's on the Internal list, and that will be corrected.

U know walker muffler got a 1.64 60ft on the same tires but didnt have a -1600 DA. Not to take anything AT ALL away from pewter six...very nice job and congrats...but I suspect walker would have had a better time yet with -1600 DA and his 1.6 60ft.

While I get everything fixed, I ran a 12.10 @ 113 mph today. Weather was in the low 60s and sunny. DA probably pretty close to 0 (I'll have to check).

(Bolt Ons - Category) - Intake, full exhaust, PTB, tune, 20" DRs

I definitely need a better wheel/tire setup. With the 20" Nitto 555Rs the best 60' I can get is 1.7x sec with some wheel spin.

Awesome videos Mike. Thanks for posting up the slip for me. To walker muffler, the man can drive and has a well setup car. Most definitely his car could have done more if he stuck with it. That time stood for 2 years? I am working on my 60's still, so don't think I'm stopping now. My mph proves a better ET with the right launch. Just stinks out here because we can have a 30 degree night one night and next night will be 70. It's hit or miss and with the thousands of people in Houston that want to race on the good nights...well I am limited to passes to practice. It took 2 hours and 45 minutes before I got to run my first pass. I was just happy to have my friends there to support me and keep me company all night. There will be more to come for my car and attempting to run quicker in the very near future. Thanks everyone!

Maybe an 11.5 ish in your future. That DA would have gotten me an 11.63 @115 converting my best run. I'm soo jealous Someday I'll get the car down to Houston, but not this winter.
