11.44 at 120.71 mph - New personal best!

Ran a new personal best today of 11.44 at 120.71mph w/ 1.63 60ft at Lapeer Dragway today! DA was awesome at -445ft but was partly negated by the 10mph headwind. Didn't cut as good of a 60ft as last Sunday at Milan, but the cold air helped it pick up on the big end. Almost hit 121mph on that pass! It was pulling like a freight train on the big end!

Not sure how much more I can get out of the car with the current mods. Will need some new mods and $$$ to go much faster at this point. It might have a high 11.3 in it with the right conditions, but I'm really happy with it running 11.40's as it sits right now.

Here's a few pics and a video from earlier today...

Damn that's great!! Im jealous, I went to my local 1/8 mile track yesterday and the DA was still +2500. Im hoping to chase some DA by towing my car and my buddies Demon out to East Texas in January. Supposedly they get some crazy low DA there at that time. Best DA for me will be Dec 1 here in So Cal. We will hopefully see +400/500 .

Thanks! I was happy to see another 11.4 pass out of the car!

Yeah I hear you on the DA, makes a huge difference. I need +500ft or lower to run 11.40's. I was thinking it might go even quicker than 11.44 today but there was a nasty headwind at the track today. Plus as good as the cold air is for power, it sucks for traction. I was hooking good off the line but on the 1-2 shift it was spinning pretty bad. It doesn't do that in the warmer air. So I might have lost a little time there too.

I know in the winter they get great air in Texas. The best I've ever run in was -500ft DA a couple years ago. Usually the best we see is maybe -250ft up to +500ft in the fall. Those guys out on the East coast have tracks at sea level and they get cold air. Not uncommon for them to have -1000 to -2000ft DA sometimes!

Hope you get some good DA soon and run the times you're looking for!

Was that in default mode? I would have assumed track or sport to be the go to settings?

I always run in Track mode when making passes. Fastest/firmest shifts. In the colder air the 1-2 shift tends to spin a little but I think if I toned down the shifts it would lose on the other ones. Little warmer air it hooks up good. My car was .1 faster 0-60 back to back ABA testing of Track Sport Track Sport on the same stretch of road with 20" drag radials on the back. So I've just stuck with Track since then.

Yes, it's much nicer now. Track surface is all new, and all concrete. Has concrete walls the whole way down. New scoreboards, new timing equipment, they put down better glue so you always hook up, has a timeslip booth now, the pits are all paved (no gravel or dirt anymore). He raised the prices a bit, but they're still reasonable. He bought an additional 80 acres adjacent to the track and plans on expanding it a bit more, adding a camp ground, and some other stuff. It's still under construction in a lot of areas, but it's already a much nicer track.

Awesome times for the mods Carl. Good seeing you yesterday as well as your friend in the Black Scat.

I ended up going faster. Finally stayed with my old tune and let it settle in. It’s crazy how reloading tunes effects performance. My shift points are never right after a freshly loaded tune and was costing me a tenth all night.

Anyway I ended up going [email protected]
