Didn't exactly rotate the earth tonight but, I made some progress-
I started the first of my four runs tonight going in a radical different direction and, dropped my tire pressure to 14psi for the first run. THAT didn't exactly work out so well...So I tried 15psi, not much better. The thought was even though *yes* they are Drag Radials, maybe they will really dig when they squat a little. Didn't do squat...
This was my third run with DA around 2600', 3700 rpm launch and, a 10mph tail wind. Tires set at 18psi. My BEST 60' so far! Still a lot left on the table and, fourth run netted a MASSIVE second gear miss from a mostly worn out 50 year old right shoulder.
There is no benefit to getting older...
Plans are to obviously install my new Stage 6 Motorsports Two Step when it arrives along with the mXa wiring harness on back order and, hopefully make it to Osceola Indiana to their Test N Tune on the 28th of this month. I think that will really be a game changer on the starting line...For me at least.
I enjoyed having a rare midweek night off from work, talked to some great Mopar people at the track, even exchanged contact info with a young man who just bought an older Hellcat Challenger himself! Saw a lot of hot Chicks too...I'm still single, still looking!
Special thanks again to IvoryCat for his advice tonight via text as I'm still working on this step by step!
I'm starting too think Speedy's right and, maybe I should rip the interior out to save myself 142.5 pounds.
(Would have been good for an 11.4 last week) but, I'm doing it with a full interior. If I replaced the Driver with a Monkey- that would be good for about -160 pounds.
Someone asked me once- "Why are you doing it the hard way and, trying to run a Stick when you could have bought an Auto?"
Racing an Auto is like watching Porn-
Driving that Stick car is like DOING Porn...
Maybe I'll run into some of you at Osceola soon? Take care everyone!
