Car ran a 9.956 @ 135.12 mph and a 1.364 60' yesterday at Cecil County Dragway.

Temps in the low 40 but bright and sunny it was a great day. I spent most of the day not able to find traction and spinning to times in the mid 10s. About mid afternoon I took about 400 rpm out of my 2-step setting and it was much better at the line with a 1.47 60' and a 10.19 @ 133 shaking the tires at the line. It seemed like I was going the right way with things so I pulled 300 rpm more out of the 2-step....it hooked perfect, I didn't screw up any shifts, the sun was shining, stars were aligned.....

I posted the time slip over in the non-tech forum and Chris was good enough to get the whole thing on video for me.....

My wide band wasn't working so I wasn't logging AFR but you can see in the video it was plenty rich....kind of like a streak of lightning emerging from a thunder cloud!!!

Nice job Brian! Run looked really good. It's been a long journey since I made fun of you at the 2004 Shootout. Looks like the jokes on me now. :) Very impressed with your accomplishment.

Congratulations Brian!

I know getting an MN12 to move that fast is no easy task. Like Chris said, lean it out and drop even more time.

The video is great....thanks again Chris.

I have a couple of other vids of the car lifting the front tires a little bit but in this video the car definitely carries the tires for a ways. Fun to watch (for me anyways!!)

That is just plain awesome Brian. If I was going down as top sc, I am very glad it was you to do it. I knew you would be the first in the nines. Once again congrats.

3+ tenths just last weekend, no real changes to the car just good weather and I'm starting to get the suspension figured out a little bit.

It's weird how sometimes you get stuck at a point then all of a sudden you have a magic day and shave a bunch of time.

I believe that a lot of that is psychological. It doesn't mean that you'll run 9's every time out now, but you will expect it and you will act accordingly. It's a great feeling!

This also demonstrates in a big way how important it is to put in the time behind the wheel at the track. You can't save up and expect to do your best one time a year. Just like we tell the kids - you gotta practice!

Nice job!

Well done Brian, looks like you're having no problems getting enough heat anymore! Lol

One of these days, when I grow up, I want to run the SC down a 1/4 mile track just like you!;)

Checking out my data log from this pass I spotting something that I thought was pretty cool.

Below is a graph showing engine rpm and mph. One thing that strikes me as very different about this run vs a lot of my other passes is how smooth everything is once I come of the rev limiter.
