14(yup nobody showed up!!) runs later was able to finally get a 1.8 60...wanted over 5k to launch and what a fine line it is...12.7 at 110 with either a lot of wheel spin out of the hole..or a bog..now that I know what it feels like to actually have traction I can work on the 60 next visit..DA 2562 Density 92.72...vids to follow..tomorrow...yawn...

12.7 @ 110mph on a 1.8 60' - sounds like the air was no fun at all. But a 1.8 is gonna net a 12.6-12.4 once it cools off and makes some power.

Looking forward to the videos and the best slip - curious to see how it runs out the 1/8th.

last night was another great learning experience...so many things to keep straight is probably the main reason seat time is so important...and DON"T BE AFRAID OF THE CAR!!! After reading all of the "horror" stories re: broken axles etc. I was PARANOID about lettin the car do it's thing...well no more...these f'in cars are STRONG! Look at my sig, the only part that does not have the mileage is the motor(replaced in 2014 by previous owner)...as long as you take care of any possible wheel hop probs, let her RIP!! Until I started launchin above 5k...forget it! By the end of the night rear psi was about 18 or so, and the next trip will prob drop it a bit more!

This vid was prob the best(excuse my big schnoz!) and when I finally get her dialed in the 60 should drop a bit more...

Nice passes. The 1.8 sixty foot must have had a bad shift because the 1/8 mile et wasn't reflective of the better launch from the 1.99 sixty foot. Once you put it all together and cut consistent sixty footers it's gonna drop that et even more!
