...wither art thou? Oh, there you are.

Shot 100 horse through my stock auto at the track on Friday. Car did 11.48 at 120.64 so just under the cage limit. Perfect. This is a fat-load car with every option but glass roof.

A converter looks like it could make this a 10 sec car, through the stock exhaust, intake, airbox. These cars are amazing.

Car was pulling a little timing in first gear bc I'm dumping in the 100 right off the stall so, at really too low an rpm. I need it though, to push the car through the sag that happens after the initial torque multiplication, due to the tight stall.

Won't take much to hit low low 11s,I know at Brainerd International Raceway on open to public night(Wednesday)if you run faster then 11.49 you need to get into the NHRA rules and get your license.
25 bucks and a helmet and you can run as much as you want plus they also have some road courses and drifting classes for a additional fee I think,you can also have a passenger if your speed is not under 14.99 so it's fun for all.

Hmm? Not sure what you mean.

Cage limit is 11.50, for modded cars. 9.99 for 08+ cars that are unaltered. The meaning of unaltered is open to debate.

I might 150 this thing at the last day of the season and see if I can hit a 10.

150 on a stock motor is a good way to justify a new motor with bells and whistles hahaha.

Wednesday is called open night,basically you need to have a overflow catch and battery has to be fastened down like factory no bungees if speed does not exceed 11.49.
A person can run whatever they want but if they will be shooting for times under 11.49 they need extra safety equipment per NHRA rules and a license.
It's fun because guys and gals drag their everyday cars or parents car(hahaha)and then you got guys that are really working on improving to move up to bracket racing and have a lot invested,it's a fun time and a good place to learn.

Well, it ain't my first rodeo. I've been building cars for over thirty years and drag racing for decades too. I know how far I can push the rule minders at my local track. I ain't ever gonna get hassled for 11.48.

No nitrous kid bc...bottles aren't for babies, har...

NX plate with the integrated solenoids. Perfect for my purposes and totally stealth.

Don't know how long I can last before just throwing 150 at it and shooting for 10s...maybe the last day of the season.....

Who is your tuner? Did you tune for the 100? I've been wanting a kit but other things take my money. Just bought a boat. Boat = Bust Out Another Thousand

You must tune for any size shot on the Coyote. Chris Jones at BBR did my tune and it made every bit of the 100 horse claimed.

I have been piecing together a setup for the last few months. Down to ordering a progressive controller then drop off at the shop for install.
