    Well I didn't set any records obviously but I was happy with the way the
    Challenger cat ran first time out into a brutal headwind that moved me around
    some. DA was hovering around 2000 near as I can tell going by the Drag Times
    DA calculator.
    Driveshaft and MT 20's are the only mods.
    Never spun a tire if I left from idle and 60ft's were in the low to mid 1.6's.

    It was allot of fun. You have to work for a good ET at this track. It doesn't
    give you anything.

    Now I need to get my friend BODUKE to come up as soon as he gets some tires
    and we'll see who's who at the zoo around here. It's a rough neighborhood. :)

    Doesnt that just piss you off to be so close to the 10's....?

    Had the same deal. The first 90 degree day...and a 2700 da on the day I decided to go. Good strong runs though!

    Thanks guys...Yes Cerino I was right there. The track historically is a tough place to play. Car seems to like a cool down time of around 45 min in 70 degree whether.

    I will have to remember the cool down. If weather is good, i will have my Cat at Beaver Springs in Selingsgrove, PA
    for their test n tune on Saturday.
    they are calling for 68 mostly cloudy and only a 20% chance of wetness. Humidity 61%
    Can i hope that translates into good times? I hope so.

    This will be an OOBE time.

    out of the box experience. No mods
