    Maybe your permissions in Photobucket at set wrong. It should be setup so anyone from the public can view it. Shoot me a link and I'll try to work on it for you.

    Spin off the line. That's interesting. What pressure do you run in your DRs? And what size/brand are you running?

    Ted, what a great run! Congrats, needless to say you're more than pleased.

    Do you happen to know the DA on your 11.59 run ? Was the only change from your previous best run of 11.97 @ 118 mph the W4M max tune (and a better DA) ?

    How were your other runs in comparison to your 11.59 @ 123 run?

    Upload your image to a hosting site like PhotoBucket and then link it to your post.

    With an almost stock A6 V on DRs, you should be able to launch fine with TC totally off.

    Thanks for your help.
    I have changed it from privet to share and I still get invalid Url.
    I use MT 305 X 35 19 DR's

    Yes I'm more than happy with my time.
    I don't know what the DA was on Saturday but the temperature was 7 deg lower than the previous time.
    Also the track was prepared properly (a lot of glue the whole length of the 1/4 mile).
    One other difference was that I have removed my thick rubber mat on driver side.
    I noticed that when gas pedal was fully depressed there was at least 1/8 of an inch of compressed rubber between floor and the pedal.
    So may may be my throttle was not full open on the previous runs.
    I made one other run at 11.72 at 122.99 with 60 ft time of 1.816 with TC on full time.

    Yes, very nice times. Your mph says it all. You're making a good amount of power for the mods you have.

    Surprised there is no date or time of the day on the timeslip. Most tracks I've encountered have date, time of day even temp./ bar. pressure, etc. on the timeslip.

    Without the date and time of the run can't really calculate the DA.

    As I have mentioned in my previous post I don't seem to be able to attach complete time slip with the date and time of the day.
    I have posted in on photoshop:
    http://www.photoshop.com/users/tedbo...4da4f8fb0422b9
    Let me know if you can access it.
    Alternately send me Pm with your email and I will email you the slip.

    FWIW, with the date and time, the DA on your run is either -62 or -144, if I'm reading the chart correctly.

    DA.JPGI used the Drag Times tool. Noon it is -144. Elevation is 204 feet for the track. If you choose 2:00 PM, the closest time ( I see 13:44 as the time), the DA is -62. Temp 62F, 30.44 inches Hg, 32% humidity.

    Re: 1/4 Mile ET & Modifications List

    Thanks HeavyH20.
    The time on the slip is 12:44 so when I use the closes time on the chart of 12PM I get DA of - 144ft.
    So take your pick which one to use.

    Don't forget to submit the timeslip to member gnxs (Larry) now that the DA has been established ( he'll want the DA ) so he can post it on the 1/4 mile chart.
