My helmet is good, used at a lot of tracks. I found a place in bellflower (TeamC) that has jackets for $70. None in XXL so sorry Phillepe.

I was close then with my 7.5 guess. I will have to lower it now though because I always run about 2 tenths faster at Irwindale than Fontana so I predict a 7.3-7.4 for you traction permitting.

I will take mine in case anyone needs it.

BTW, it does not matter how fast or slow you are. If you have nitrous or FI of any kind you need a fire jacket. You also need a driveshaft loop if you run drag radials.

You can try and tell them your car cam from the factory with FI.

I'm gonna be running Nitto NT05R drag radials. Why is Irwindale so much strict than Fontana?

I'll be taking my jacket (gordo size) in case someone wants to borrow it. The first time I went, they let me slide, so it may not be a problem.

Let us know. I did a best of 7.59@98MPH. I was hoping to do better in the 1/8. A 1.87 was my best 60'. I've done better. I hate how the staging is not level at Irwindale. I had to use the E-brake to keep from rolling through the beams.

My best 60' was .769. Yeah the staging area was a bit weird. I'm surprised you didnt run faster either. I probably could have done better also, and the temps didn't really help much.

I know I would have ran faster, if I didn't have to hold the parking brake in the staging lane to keep the car from rolling forward and breaking the beam early. It was throwing my timing and feel way off. It wouldn't matter if my car was a auto.
