Finally got to make some passes today, the first ones of the year. The car isn't 60ft-ing as good as last year, but I've got a lot of adjustments to make yet. New best N/A ET, right off the trailer :)

R/T: .031
60: 1.70
330: 5.045
1/8: 7.882 @ 86.19 MPH
1000: 10.363
1/4: 12.481 @ 106.11 MPH

My previous best ET at Pittsburgh Raceway Park was a 12.72 @ 104 MPH. Track is at 1200' elevation.

I didn't take the tools out of the box today, figured I leave that to the next time :beer:

Very good Dave. Kinda makes me want to get mine done.:( I don't really see the strip in the near future tho. If I get it on the road, I will be happy.

Well, you thought it had some 12.40's in it, seems like you guessed pretty good!

Congrats Dave!

PS. I'm going to Quakercity on Friday with the girlfriend. PRP doesn't run during the week until May 10th or something. Care to join?

Wow, that's quite an improvement right off the trailer. Good job! I'm jealous of your 60's...I miss my 1.70's.:( :p

The car was hooking great yesterday, but I will be able to get consistent 1.6x 60fts after playing around with the Caltrac preload. I ran 12 lbs in the tires on my last pass and I did not like how the car was skating around :eek:

Yea, I started at 20lbs and ended up at 16lbs. Dad said he could see the tires flex on the 1-2 at 16lbs. Last year 18lbs worked good for me.:)
