I'm running one more time. A pre-99 Cobra and I will line up together. Maybe competition will help me

easy on the launch. your 60 is killing you. you have potential to go less than 13.5 easy

Yes a good 60 should get you around 13.5s your trap speed shows you still got a couple tenths to cut out!..may not get it down to much on street tires though.

Well dang! My last run was 14 flat. It seemed to be all good but I think I took it too easy out of the hole. Stinky 60ft!

Attachment 64025



Man, I'm just so afraid to get drag radials. I feel like I'm gonna pop something. That might be the only way I'm gonna get down in the mid 13's.

At least I had fun!

They wouldn't let us line up because there were som many people and we would have to shift a couple cars. He was a younger fella and he was having trouble out of the hole too. His last run was 14.9.

Yeah, if I break something on my DD, I'm afraid my wife will stand me in the corner and take my toy away.
