Well I just got back from the track tonight - I'm a little excited and a little disappointed. It was 85* F when I started running and still 80* when I left.

The heat cost me about 20hp or 2mph off my norm. - but it's summer what am I going to do? This was my 1st time out with my posi :)

The best pass I had was:

60 - 1.633 - Gotta love 7psi launches!
330 - 4.789
1/8 - 7.457
MPH - 92.46
1000 - 9.747
1/4 - 11.687
MPH - 115.11

I finally weighed the car to - It comes in at 3560 with me in it, so 3400.

It was a consistant 11's second car tonight - and I'm loving leaving on boost!

Good start!

Did it feel strange going thru the lights on an even keel? :D

It was nice Steve - and it was nice coming out of the hole straight!

I've got an exhaust leak to chase, fan switch to wire, and it probably could use some 28" tall tires - as it falls flat at the 1000'.

As Steve said....great start. Wait until you get some cooler weather and you should be solid mid 11's at 117-118.

I only have 250 miles on my rebuild but I may go to the track within a week.

Acctually - I did turn the boost to 27 and saw no gains, I think I need a bigger hairdryer.
