Just got back from the track:

Ran my fastest trap speed of all time, but I was a .1th off my quickest ET. We were at Baileyton, I don't think the track was prepped very well. I don't know if any of y'all have ever been there, but it's an 1/8th mile track in a guys back yard, best as I can tell. I hit it too hard off the start, spun and wheelhopped a bit. 2.103 on the 60'. It cost me, too. Here's the whole slip:

60 ft - 2.103
1/8th ET - 8.737
1/8th mph - 86.70

If that bastard would ever send me my wheels, so I could mount the drag radials, I feel pretty confident it's got at least an 8.4 in it. If not an 8.2 or so. Guess time will tell. Anyway, figured you Mustang boys might want to know how the competition runs.

I'll bet I could hit 9's all night, noone cares about 8's anymore, 9's is where it's at.

1/8th mile tracks are better anyway.

Re: Just got back from the track:

really, 1/4 mile doesn't take anymore skill. you just have one more shift.

the first 60' is where all of the skill is displayed

Re: Just got back from the track:

I guess I'm lucky, I have 2 1/8 and 1 1/4 mile tracks within 60 miles from me. I hit at least one of them a week.

I've never even heard of an 1/8th anywhere around me.
