Went to Woodburn OR. a couple weeks ago and had a blast!!! My quickest time was 13.11. My best reaction time was .026 (not at the same time). I've been told I should be running 12s at least. I think that will come with some practice...
My biggest concern is temperature of the engine. Is there a different relay combo or set up that we can use to keep them fans running while in line to race to aid in cooling?? Thank you all in advance!

I use my aeroforce interceptor gauge, it has a menu with controls that allows you to have the engine off but key on, so you can turn on either your high speed fans or low speed fans to cool down the engine as much as possible before you make your next pass.

I don't see a 180* tstat in your sig. That is a MUST have when it comes to racing. Keep those engine temps down and keep it from heatsoaking.

I assume you are a 6 speed. What are your 60 foot times. I find
Launching to be my biggest issue. My 60 foot times are usually
In the 2.2s. Rarely am I in the 12's and never better then 12.9x. A lot
Of this is driver issues or not willing to risk things with high rpm
Launches on stock tires.

Roll your windows down, turn the heater control knob to hot , turn on the defroster at highest speed.The fans will run while you are in line. Turn everything off windows up when you are staging.

don't blame you. manual + high rpm dump = good chance of breaking something.
Auto's are much easier on the drive line.

Maybe you don't believe in heat soak because you were running in temps below 50°F lol

My car can run the same times over and over with little to know cooldown on a cold day too, but I can't say the same on a hot day.
