Nice run, that we a good time for your trap speed, what was your 60'?
Also just curious what was the whining sound (your diff) after you got out of it until you turned left off the track?

Youll pick up that .131 in a few weeks when the air gets really good!!:thumbsup:

Nice run bro.

Yeah, now that I am launching harder and quicker with slicks, I have to relearn the tree :facepalm:

yes, 6-point RPM rollbar installed. It's where I have my camera mounted.

1.570 60' and yes, I have the whining gears (second set) that were set up direct from Strange with a locker. The first set whined like crazy under acceleration, this set when I decelerate but not as bad as the first set. I'm just going to live with them until they break or I decide on a different ratio, which may be before next season.

Thanks and it was a gorgeous day for racing even if I did go out in the first round of eliminations! Did you make it through any rounds in the County Corvette Race?

Yeah it is! I'll take a manual over an automatic any day, even if I am a little slower. :w00t:

I'm running 4.11's

Dude that is SICK! What do you have for your driveline to handle a launch like that? Thats how I want my car setup!

I have a Quicktime scatter shield with midplate, race-built by Rick Kim (RKT Performance out of MD - highly recommended), DSS 9" conversion with Strange "S" series with 4.11's and a Detroit locker, 1400 HP axles and 3-1/2" aluminum drive shaft and most suspension parts are aftermarket including a Hotchkis chassis brace. She a little rides stiff but launches hard and true.
