    I would think that there would be more RWHp & RWTQ for you with heads more so than the exhaust, but who knows. Quite a tribute to your shoeing skills that you are quicker than Curtis with over 100 RWHP & RWTQ less than him. On the other hand, considering that was Curtis's first trip down the 1/4 and he did as well as he did is pretty phenomenal also.

    Very great numbers Larry. You definitely know how to move very fast in a straight line. 11.0 on another bad day, is track experience and skill. This guy knows how to drive a car. If I remember correctly you were bracket racing Sunday which goes to show consistency of driver and car performance.

    I'm positive Curtis is going to improve vastly. Just a little more practice. Very quick learner from not ever driving a car at the track. No doubt about it.

    Can't say the same for me but I had a great time meeting both you and Curtis. Both are great guys. It's cool to meet some fellow car enthusiasts. Gotta love them V's

    Mike,

    I had a great time too. I hope to see you again next time. It was a blast. I really enjoyed hanging out with you and picking your brain.
    BTW, did you call about that wiper cap? I told people it was an issue with these cars. LOL

    Dr Buzz:

    Nice ET! It looks like your 1/8 mile trap is very strong...but you seem to be losing steam in your 1/4 mile trap (you only picked up 22.85mph after the 1/8th). Did your car have any problems shifting? Did you notice anything else weird happening?

    Thanks brent and nice run.

    For consistency I've been using the DA calculator on dragtimes for all the timeslips. Their DA was ever so slightly different than your number. Hope you don't mind.

    I was asked this and I honestly did not notice. I only saw the tailights. I will have a vid at some point and will find out. All I know is I was "Fred Flintstoning it" in an effort to catch him. LOL
