I'd like to get out again soon though.

Looks like a nice night to race. I'm helping my buddy with the 7.25 car tomorrow all day at Byron for the MDRA race so I'm not going anywhere tonight. :(

Not too bad.

Jim pulled off a 11.974 yesterday with a 1.7 60ft.

Should be a few folks racing there on Monday.

I have a ported intake coming, Imma hold off until I install it and have Jim look at the tune.

I was at Byron last weekend, met a few 5th gen folks there. I don't know that it hooked better than the grove.

I want to try slicks/dr night at the grove pretty soon.

Bad70, I'd be willing to try NLR, I had good luck with that track in the past.

With the 18's up front, I think I'm down to 3720 w/o driver:

Yeah, looks like I got a few interested in coming with me as well. That's why I go early. Take advantage of the cool air and better track prep from the weekend.

I'm ready to see your 11 sec slip. Shoot, I have a Turbo kit sitting at home doing nothing too... just saying lol

Patient and smart! No sense in beating on the car for no possible results. But they are saying a high of 72 on Monday... so I'm hoping for low 60's in the morning to try and get this fat truck in the 12's.

Had a fun trip at the track monday. Had a nice group of cars go out... everything from 5th gens, jeep srt8's, and a GTR.

Jim was able to pull off a 11.789 @ 116 with a 1.68 60ft. I really think hes got more in her after getting that 60ft down. I was really impressed with his passes. He started trying to launch at too high of an RPM and it cause him to lunge forward a little bit. So i think he said the sweet spot was 2200rpm.

Yeah I saw, very nice. I'm out this weekend for LS Fest but will install this intake manifold when I get back and then go to Jim to check on the tune. I'll go racing sometime after that.

How did Randy do and the others do?

Randy was very very consistant. 13.0's all day long. Took a little adjusting with the burnout and everything. I got some videos i will post up when i get the time. I think for his power level the tire pressure was too low.

everyones best pass wa their first one. There were a ton of FWD and street cars killing the track prep. And the DA got over +2000 after about 1pm so times started slowing down.

Overall it was a fun time, i think Jim was the only new PB though.

I haven't made any passes for a while, was too hot and work other obligations have kept me busy. I won't be able to race this week as I'm helping my buddy at the LSX final race in Indy.

I have made 3 changes since I was last out:

18's up front, only dropped 11 lbs a corner, but they turn easier than the 20x9/275's I had up front:


New Era OTR air intake:


Rich Crawford ported and modified intake manifold (thanks Mike P for the install help):


Car feels pretty strong. I actually think I could tolerate more stall converter now.

I'm thinking I'll get out next week, Thursday at GLD assuming I get some tires.

i was at GLD all day yesterday. i do have to say it was amazing how well the track was prepped most of the day. Had a fox body mustang lift all 4 wheels off the ground and almost land on me haha.

There was a CTS-v Coupe running some meaty tires and hitting mid 10's all day. Thing was beatiful. But total of over 120 cars yesterday.

PSJ, i know for sure on october 27th (sunday) Scotch Man and I will be at the track with some other guys as usual. Hoping for some killer DA by then.

Lol I feel like its been forever since I have seen you

But it was a black coupe. From my understanding he had a forged built motor including heads and cam. Plus a decent amount of nitrous. 2 stages to be exact with 2 bottles. It was insane. Sounded amazing

And the last time Jim was out was the 11.7 pass. He wants to wait for cooler air. I have been MIA trying to work to get my car back together. Its been a long 3 months
