Congrats man your car is running very good. I know that's a very frustrating place to be is a hair behind the record lol. I was within .006 on 2 passes and .003 on 2 passes when Terry had it. What was the DA in the mine shaft last night?

DA was dropping all night. It was -1500 on that pass. The track usually stays open till 11 or so, but lights out at 940 last night. The place was basically empty. And she was steady getting faster.

Man I would love to be able to hit a track close to home with that DA! Best I can do is Houston and its about 4-5hr drive.

Didn't you run your best there? It would be worth going to Houston at least twice a year under good weather conditions for sure.

Yea that's where I set the record. It's just a pain in the ass to drive 5hrs, swap all 4 wheels, race all night, swap all 4 wheels again then drive 5hours again at midnight. It would be nice if my local track would produce that. Once in a blue moon we might see 100DA.
