Nope. Don't mind at all. I just reserve the right to pester the crap out of you untill you change it if/when I get those times down.

Jay found his slip, so updated his timeslip info as well. We just got a serious cold snap here, might need to go attempt a pass soon.

Leaving in about an hour, 0% chance of rain. Currently 71*, low of 54* tonight. Hoping to make 1-2 passes, maybe three if I feel brave. What do I think it will run? Somewhere in the mid to upper 12s @ 119+ MPH. Most recent dyno was 446 RWHP corected on an older Dynojet. I have 60lbs of ballast in the hatch, and will be filling the tank about a mile before the track. It's in 100% street trim, no weight reduction, short belts, etc.

Sorry Steve, you got bumped down a spot. I fell short of both my ET & MPH predictions. Trailered cars kept leaking all over the track. I didn't get a run until 8:31pm, by then the dew had settled.

The run down... I slid the clutch out fast at 2500 RPM. It lurched forward, lit the tires, I lifted too much, tires hooked and car fell on its face. Once it got rolling, blew the tires off. Shifted 2nd, spun all of 2nd gear. Shifted 3rd, spun at least half of 3rd. Shifted 4th just north of 90 MPH, got easily 50ft of rubber and the car squirmed all over the place. It's an erie feeling at nearly triple digit speeds.

No excuses, it needs better tires. The driver mod can't compensate for a complete and utter lack of traction.
