Finally the weather and work cooperated!!! lol Only got to make 3 passes. Some idiot who thought he could ride a bike (Looked like he was riding a bucking bronco) mucked up the track and broke something and managed to spill oil all down the right lane.! mad I sat in the staging lane for an 1hr and 15 min waiting to make my last pass. Pass went like this;

r/t .001 eek little to close
60' 1.756 new best
330' 5.119
1/8 7.948 / 85.92 mph new best
1000' 10.443
1/4 12.57 / 105.79 mph new best

Car started to move around just before the stripe. Had to back out of the throttle just a bit.

I think the e-brock uppers had something to do with the better 60' just by stiffening the suspension up. The car left really hard and felt great. Just when I think I have gotten all I can get outta of her she surprises me!!! lol

Nice run. It makes me so jealous to hear you guys are actually out there running them and our track is covered with 2 feet of snow.
