After a whole bunch of "90's", finally a new best of 11.88 @ 119 with a 1.71 60'. Traction wasn't great, but Miss Maggie liked the cool air. Threw the belt on an attempt to lower it further, think I could have done it too, according to the 60'. Will try again tomorrow.

Excellent 60' and mph, thats alot of mass for that mph. What is your weight and are you running 3.73s. If you are running 4.10s you are making some serious power. Regardless great run.

Whoa! ... that's GREAT!

Had you made any changes or did everything just fall into place (i.e. cool air, shifting, reaction time, ...)?

Good Job Gene.

Like SLPR said.....that's a lot of mass to move 1/4 of a mile. You will always have the best "V" time IMO. Glad you got the strong diff finally.

I have Doug's rear with 4:10's. Car weighs 4200 (Maggie and the rear added weight) and some change. I've been waiting for my replacement Magnavolt that was supposed to have been here earlier this week as I've been having trouble with it, otherwise no changes. Still launching at about 2000 RPM due to tire traction. Thanks everyone.

Nice times! With that trap speed, the car is capable of 11.5x with better traction.

What are you running for rubber in the rear?
