    For hot weather you did well. I ran a 16.5 all day in 90 degree weather when I should have ran much lower. That car has 15's in it for sure on a 70 degree day.

    This is a selfish post of mine, but I really miss drag racing. I wish I had my car finished by now

    I forgot to add that 2.28 on street tires is a kick ass 60ft times, especially backing it up back to back.

    Underclassman, I hear ya, I only get to drag race two weekends out of the summer right now till they open up a new dedicated track.... Hard to test and tune only twice a year to see results.

    Thanks. I'm gonna try to go back in a couple weeks. Hopefully it will be a little cooler. We are going through a bad heat wave right now!

    I'm heading to the 1/4 on August 10,11,12. I'm hoping for cooler weather then when I raced in June and also have fixed several issues with the car so I'm hoping to make a decent pass down the track.

    Not bad, was hoping for more. I think I could knock a few more tenths off that time still with a wideband tune and different launch techniques.

    Nope Earlton, Ontario. Only got one day in as the other two days the event was rained out. I might go up to Cayuga the weekend of August 24,25,26. The guys I normally drag race with are going up for the Street Car Nationals. Friday during the day is the street car nationals test and tune, then it's the normal test and tune after 7PM-11PM. Saturday is qualifying and sunday is one qualifying pass then elims. The only class I can run is Open Comp, no biggie but the .400 tree is not my thing, I'm used to running the .500 sportsman tree.
