Next time

First pass car pulled hard(ripping tires off in 1st and 2nd) hit third and the lower intercooler pipe blew off OOPS!!! It went 10.9 at 121 . Second pass pulled in water box set line lock and the brake pedal went to the floor. Looked under car and the rear wheels screws wore a hole in the rear drivers side braided line. SO I will repair line and back to track in 2 weeks.

You are very lucky that the problem surfaced in the burnout box,amagine the pucker factor of the pedal going to the floor @ 143 mph!!!

laundry

It is almost to that point. I just upgraded to all wheel disc brakes. 1/4 mile ruls in midwest anything faster then 150 needs a chute.
