I busted off a 12.9 :D on my first pass. The last time the car was at the track it ran a 17.4 :eek:
I had to pedal it some and I short shifted it, I dident want to be too hard on the car cause I wasent sure how it would act. I let out before I crossed the line because I wasent too sure if the brakes would slow me down in time to turn at the return road :eek:

1:15pm today the DA was 6704
Im sure with better air and some sticky tires I could bring the 60ft down and bust off a low 12 or high 11 :D and then spray it :D
Not too bad for a moredoor on street tires.
I will try and get a vid of the race posted tonight or tomorrow.

wow, sounds like a really good combo. I would be shocked if that doesnt have 11 secs in it with good tires and tuning.

have you had it dynoed?

what kind or do you have any traction device i.e. caltrac bars, slapper bars , slid-a-links , what is your rear suspension set up ? i see your running a 28'' tall tire but how wide are they and how much air pressure where you running ? it has a ton left in it thats for sure :yes: how much timing was in it ? what did the plugs look like ? anyways good pass looks like you had a blast too

The reason im running the torker 2 is to keep hood clerance.
I have some slapper bars on the car, I need to make some adjustments on them. The tires are MT et street radials 275/60/15 running on 18psi. The timing is at 36 deg, im not sure what the plugs look like cause the rain was comming and I had to make it home because I dont have wipers. :D
