    New personal best!

    ttps://youtu.be/NchfzNTfonY


    I am very happy with this! I had hot lapped the car from a 8.02 @ 88.4mph
    it was 92f outside with 81% humidity and I shredded the blower belt and dropped
    to 5psi of boost near the end of the pass. With cooler weather and having the
    car under full boost for a whole pass I think it will run a 11.xxxx 1/4 mile

    Yes a .026 jet. I was playing it safe because I left the laptop at home by mistake
    Ran low 11s afr so it was a bit rich.

    I ran a 8.02/88.61mph 1.81 60' earlier off the bottle. Finally found the sweet spot for my et streets (20psi)

    I am going to try like hell to hit the track again before the shootout. I would like to see what it will do with full boost the whole pass and more desirable weather. The weather could not have been worse that night! Also i was hot lapping the car.

    The parking brake was on!

    I had a head wind!

    The trunk was full of tools!

    I missed a gear!

    The starter was topless!

    My A/C was on!

    I missed 7th gear!

    I forgot to fill my nitrous bottle!

    The gravity at the track spiked!
