New PB Tonight!!

Went to Texas Motorplex tonight hoping to get in the 11.6X range and just couldn't get traction. The track prep was not great at all for that track. Normally they prep good but tonight was challenging. Finally got 1 decent 60 again soft rolling the throttle and hit a
NEW PB 11.70 with Bolt Ons Only!!

I'm inching closer and closer to that #1 spot!

Thanks guys! Didn't think I was ever gonna get traction last night. Of course I was trying to go all out, and the track just wouldn't hold at all. I would spin straight into the 2gear shift bogging it down. John, I had to do just like you mentioned in your post, had to leave soft and just let it grab then get in it.
There is .06 left in the 60ft and with neg -1000DA another .1 and +1 mph
So I think it will go 11.54 on a Dead Hook Perfect run.
It's gonna take Houston or LA to get it I'm sure.

I'm disappointed. I came into this thread expecting news about some new kind of peanut butter.

Drivability with a 3600 is perfectly fine. There are few things that your tuner can do to make it really good, but I like the way that loose converters drive more than I do stock converters anyways. You might lose a few mpg in town, but it's worth it if you plan on drag racing with a sticky tire.

Almost forgot about the little incident that happened on the way home from the track. Me and 62Nalide were traveling North on 45 just outside of Ennis cruising at a safe 65mph, and a stock looking Mustang pulls into the other lane and comes up beside me. I paid him no attention and maintained my speed. He stayed beside me for about 10 secs then he passed me and got in my lane. He stayed like that for about 1 mile then he got over in the right lane and proceeded to slow down. I slowed down a little just to avoid the inevitable. Finally I knew it was gonna happen so I sped up to speed limit and caught up to him. As soon as I got beside him, he sped up to my speed. He started popping his throttle. We stayed even for about 10 secs then we both hit it! After putting about 3 lengths on him real quick, I saw an 18 wheeler up in front so I got on my brakes hard. Also didnt want a ticket going 100+!
With his feelings hurt and his gf in his passenger side, He pulled up beside me again to give me the thumbs up then exited in defeat!
I don't know why I get that all the time. Another Stang bites the dust!

It's a Rhino modified intake. Not actually ported.
