Well here are my times. I made 5 passes and overall am pretty happy considering it was my first time to the track. My best was a email@example.com with a 2.19 60 ft.
Second was an 8.99, the. Third and fourth were both 9.04. 60 ft ranged between 2.19-2.24 so at least i was very consistent, but my reaction times sucked. My bad launch on my third pass spun half of first and pulled off an amazing 10.5@67...(sarcasm). Anyway I had a great time, but wish there was not so much down time in-between runs....test and tune = really fast cars + quick/slow cars (me) + bikes, thus about 20 mins between passes. the fastest car was a red fox body mitshubishi 4 cylinder turbo powered car that ran a low 5 second pass and was second only to some drag cars (mr dragsters?).

Im stationed in florida
and made the 100 mile trip (each way) so no not really from Mobile, however I don't think that is correct. My slips show both a 594 foot ET and a 1/8th mile ET. There is no way I only went 6 feet in 0.6 seconds. On My 8.95 pass, I was @ 8.32 @ The 594ft mark. MYbe it's changed since you went last?

Yea well other than my one launch where I left at 3k, leaving at around 2k and easing into the throttle until about 20mph worked well. Next I think Nitto's will have to be on the list. I've heard great things about hoosier & MT, however If I have to drive 100 miles to this track I think I'd rather go with Nitto555R in case I get caught in the rain, because I've had BFG/hoosiers on an old firebird and I swear I couldn't go faster than 30mph in the rain without it wanting to go everywhere. Either way both DRs and control arms & then gears are next up on the list. Thanks for your input and love the True Blue Stangs.
