How many miles you got on it? Mine feels considerably faster since I've hit past 1500 miles.

The L99s are impressive in this cold weather... kind of shocked considering how they were running in the summer months. Well done!

no mods what so ever. the mods are to come after the winter season. its stock down to the air in the tires. the car had i think like 2200 miles on it. at 900 miles, the car went 13.47 in pretty warm weather.

definitely! both 12 sec passes (made 2 back to back) were with a 1.92 and a 1.98. so, given the right air, the car will make really low 13 sec passes if not 12's below the 2.000 60'

Definitely. My best run when I went was a terrible 9.1 on an 1/8th, which gets about a 14 flat on a 1/4, and that was with my 60 FT being 2.2+. I stalled anywhere from 1500 to 2000 and just spun terribly.

yeah just a hair under 1000 seems to be key...i used to stall up to 1500 but the track prep was pretty good and i could feel the torque management kick in pretty good.

Did you feather it all? Or did you mash it and leave it there?

Great run.
And yes, its all about the first 60'. With 60' times down in the 1.9x area combined with a good DA, your looking at high 12 sec run.

I'm pretty sure he just mashed it. As he said he stalled it up just a hair under 1000 and then went. I tried the same thing with the second run but my 60' wasn't as good as his.

the car definitely has a bit lower time especially with a better 60' and more -DAs.

Nice job...

People early on were very negative about the L99 the performance, but most were getting and running their cars in the heat and humidity of summer. With the weather changing the number will continue to fall.

Good job!

I pulled a 2.0 60ft but could only manage a 13.3 @105 but that is also with a DA of over 3300...

Nice weather ya' got there!

Weather really does make a difference. I have to admit last night's weather turned out to be pretty good at the track. a negative DA is always a plus as well as a barometer above 30. Atco Raceway in NJ usually gets some nice weather come the cooler winter months so cars definitely show their potential.

I was extremely happy the car made it into the 12s. with a confirmed 12s right after. so the potential is there and we are both hoping for some lower times.

Oh ok. Because in my little run in a couple nights ago I had to feather for that to hook up on the STREETS.

yeah on the street it will just light the tires up...but since the track is nice and sticky, no worries about traction..

Good Job Steve and Steph!!

That car is flying im very impressed

(especially with Steph pulling a 12 on her very first night running the car at the track)

That car has a 12.8 in it once the DA's start hitting -1500 or better

Thanks Alex.. I can't wait to see some 12.8s though! That'll be exciting.

Still can't believe I even ran a 12s pass the first night ever running at the track!
