It'll go faster - more rpm out the back to keep it in 4th, taller tire, or a lockup.
Thanks! Will take a look at what your thinking.
You are correct about it spinning on those runs was trying to hold around 3K off the launch. Caused some wheel hop that I'd never had before and defiantly spun a little. Will consider that taller tire, especially since was thinking shorter for next year and raising it to around 7100. Held it out to around 7300 on a couple dyno pulls. Tap shifting allowed it a higher shift point before I hit the limiter, so sure it will take it. Also correct on the crappy air that day.
I think it's also tough to get it dialed in remotely because of ever changing weather and only having the one tune. Probably would have to get to track on just the right day to get that great run. Or have more knowledge like you.
Thanks again for the input!

Thank you sir and yes it does have the trunnion upgrade.

No new PBs today

Well I tried, but this is the best I could do today. The last pass had the potential to be quicker, but I messed it up. I always stage shallow, and on the last one, I was standing on the brakes and stalling it as high as I could, and the tires broke loose a bit and rocked me forward into a deep stage. I thought I had red lighted for sure for a second! But no redlight, just a slower 60' to go along with the fact that I hot lapped it that time (which I usually never do)

So 11.099 @ 122.80mph today, last run of the season. Back to the drawing board. 10s on stock heads next season!

So close! I'm sure it has it 10s in it, just gotta find that perfect 60'.

Went ahead and change the year on the thread since the season is essentially over. Congrats to those who bettered their PB's and hope next year brings continued success!



I also hope some of that 11 sec mojo rubs off on me! lol
