    Bowtye8 Vs. Litigator...Some 1/4 Mile Racing at PBIR!!

    We both attended Test and Tune on Wed. night at PBIR
    We line up together 7 Times. Pretty much worked out perfect.
    Talk about 2 cars running identical!!!!!
    Pretty much the same mods. 9.5 Lower, Airaid CAI, Tunes(Lit =Diablo sport-I think: bowtye8-Hand Held Jessie Tune) Lit Has a Livernois heatexchanger. I have the Wait4me Version but not installed.

    We ran identical. The Tree was the race. A few times I would pull a fender on the shift. I would say Jessie shifts are agreesive and would bumpo my car just a tad.
    We have 6 Timeslips together.
    If I was not there with Lit I would be very unhappy with my results.
    DA started at 1700.
    We both have some Gopro vids and My daughter did a few with my old handycam. Will get those posted tommorow.
    60's sucks. Both of us in hte 1.8x all night except for a final pass lit made by himself. a 1.79 after a Good Cool Down
    Both cars were heatsoaked.
    First Pass
    Bow-1.83 60,7.738@92.88 11.939@117.16
    Lit-1.85 60,7.83@94.12 12.07@116.45

    Pretty Muc the same all night.
    My best pass was my last with a 11.85@117.75
    I wanted some 11.4 to 11.5...Not in this heat. Was 78 when we arrived and 72 when I left. Very Humid.

    I will scan in the time slips. So bumper to bumper racing. It was a blast. Great company Lit!!!!
    Most wins to me by the RT. Lit treed me on one or two but my shifts seems to just edge him out by the end of the track.

    I also scanned I believe every run of mine with HP tuners. Still have to check them out. I can post a few of them up if anyone is interested.


    He will chime in with more info.

    Updated. Here is youtube link with some video

    Had a great time Dennis. I'll put up the videos later tonight. Right after you left I ran two 11.7x, so the conditions got a little better.
