I did no tire prep because it was at TnT which starts before I get off work so I hurried over there with the fiancee. I did decent burnouts before each run because it was about 50 degrees and let car cool before I made my passes that night. It was her first time being there too and she loved it. I will post up my slips from that night tomorrow. I ran 14.2 rest of the time. Hoping to have some good times at Midnight Madness tomorrow night. I race at Memphis International Raceway (MIR).

I am looking at tires/rims or exhaust right now, but not sure if I should continue or just save up for a used SS (really want to get a SS someday).
So what launch technique did you use to get the good 60' time? Did you launch from idle, or near idle, or something different?

Also, you said you did burnouts. Did you actually smoke the tires a bit, or just spin them a bit to clean them off?

I launched around 1750 RPM and rolled into it at third yellow.

I smoked them a little bit each time.

Thank - you everyone. It was a good pass, as it just walked off the line with total hook up. Made 10 passes that day. 4 of them were 1.9XX 60's and 3 passes were 13.6XX. Now if I could just lose that 150 lb. I am disadvantaged with.

Blown motor right after passing the 1/8th, that's why the final trap is so low. It is not a misprint or timing error.

Yes, it can be put back as one list if that's what people want. However I separated it because we only have ten slots and by having it separated allows for more people to be on the list. With more people on the list you have a larger variety of mods and geographical locations and thus a larger sample size to get an idea what everything runs. Also, IMO it also helps to compare (a little easier) N2O set ups to N2O set ups and permanent (Turbo & Supercharger) set ups to each other.

However what I may do is add in a combined (overall) FI list.
