MIR midnight madness - 29AUG14 - '05 mustang gt

I went to MIR 29AUG14 for Midnight Madness...



front struts set to full loose
rear shocks set to +3 clicks from full loose
3560 lbs w/driver
DA started near 1100 ft and worked down to 400 ft later in the evening (per drag times DA calculator)

1st pass rear tires set to 14psi, 6k rpm launch
2nd pass rear tires set to 14psi, launched off the limiter @ 6.5k
3rd pass rear tires set to 16.5psi, launched off the limiter @ 6.5k
all remaining passes rear tires set to 15psi, launched off the limiter @ 6.5k



best run of the night was 12.491 with a 1.642 60' (new best 60'). MPH was down all night, possibly because I was running less pressure in the rear tires(?) Mounted my gopro to the panhard bar to watch the tire at launch:

There were a lot of cars in super street (53 or 63?), and I think I was the #12 qualifier. I dialed in a 12.49 and gave it a go. I've never really paid attention to trying to cut a light, and as such I managed to red light during the first round of eliminations (-0.011 red). I was exhausted anyways, so it's good I was able to pack up and head home. Once I get everything dialed in and consistent, then I'll worry about cutting a light.

Being able to put the pedal to the floor @ launch was lots of fun. I spoke with a couple of guys in the staging lanes and they said both front wheels came up; someday I'll get a pic of that

here are outside vids to go along with the above undercar vid:
