    image.jpg Ok , I've been sick for a few weeks and the weather has gotten more humid and hot ! So I ventured out and made about 8 passes tonight with the best being a 11.04 and the worst a 11.28 ! DA was way up tonight and it was really humid ! All in all I was happy with my runs and 60' times , but there was no doubt that the car lost power due to the weather conditions! I dropped 3 mph off my trap speed and added .3 seconds onto my ET ! Wanted a 10 second run badly , oh well next time!

    Nice runs in the 80's my man!

    You can't fix the air quality, but you can help control the intake temps. Have you found a crew of people-or hell-even one person to keep your car cool/ice pack till you stage?

    Can't wait until tuning becomes available for this car. I can't wait to see what it's capable of with a little aftermarket help

    Well a few of the top racers in the know told me that I would never run in the 10's last night due to the weather , and if I did they would buy me a nice free dinner! I like free dinners at Ruth Chris , so I gave it a shot ! I was .04 seconds away from a free dinner ! Lol
