Just got back from the track...

Yeah its 12:15

Only got 3 runs in tonight, but my last run.. was on a set of ET streets from a coworker who brought his supra, same bolt pattern..

Unfortunately 1/8th mile only
First run was 9.2@78 MPH, 2.2 60'
second run was 9.1@78, 2.1 60'


Third run was...

8.61@80.6MPH 1.79 60', and I didn't spin shifting into second or third like the previous two runs

Flat shifting with grip = fun... and proves my 4.6 is still fairly healthy (that equals a mid 13 second run) only 3 'power enhancers' my car has are the 3.73 gears, the throttle body and the plenum

I promptly got flagged and was told I couldn't run again unless I found a helmet

I need booost.. and a helmet

Re: Just got back from the track...

LOL found a semi lame video of my second run



I was in the left lane, guy in the right lane was the target of the camera and the whistles/cheering, he suppposedly had heads/every bolt on under the sun..

He somehow got a 1.95 60' AND a red light (so he jumped me) (to my 2.0 on that run) but I did nothing but pull away from there on haha - (note they run a .500 tree here so I have to make a conscious effort to not launch on the second yellow like all the other tracks I go to that run a 000 tree)

Again pretty crappy, and I didn't get much camera time, but that was my second run of the night before I tried the et streets

You've got to have a helmet for 8's? That's lame. Huntsville doesn't make you rock a helmet until you get to 6.99.

NHRA rules state 8.59 and below requires helmet in 1/8th mile, or 13.999 in the 1/4 (though an 8.59 is equivalent of mid to low 13 )

Re: Just got back from the track...

Against an 03 cobra vert that couldn't drive..

George thinks I have an '03, I need to correct him on that haha



I'm the second run, not the blue GT vs the honda

Launched too soft, but didn't do too bad
