    Larry,

    Here is my slip from Byron today. Thanks for a great time. I hope to improve vastly with practise and better DA. My first time at a drag strip. I am confident this car is a 10.7 or 10.5 with perfect conditions and better skill.

    1.61 is a very good 60' with your amount of power. 11.03 is also good, but I would have thought 130+mph trap speed.

    I had a new best when I was out at the track with cbloveday yesterday.

    My first pass of the day:

    I was hoping for a higher trap speed as well. Your thoughts on reason for this?

    GNXS will post that data in the next few days. He'll use it for the chart on page 1.

    Congratulations to both Curtis & Jesse Bubb at Wait4Me Performance. Great times & statistics, Curtis, #1 on the list. People will want your blood now. You will have to be in the 10's as I suspect that a lot of peeps will be hot on your tail or trail, whichever comes first.

    Gary, that position will not stand. I know GNXS had some good air today and his car was running great. He is definately a great foot! I hope to get in the 10s in October.
    Also, there are alot of high horsepower cars and/or with great drivers that are yet to post.

    Thanks for the kind words Curtis. The air was about 400 feet better today and my car was running great (with decent time available to cool down). If you were there today, you would have left with a pocketful of 10 second timeslips and like .2 off your best run.

    I ran a whole string of 11.0's with a best of 11.005 (first run of the day). Here's the timeslips. I'm working on extracting the vids from yesterday and today.

    Here's my timeslips and mods to update my time on the spreadsheet (A-B-C-D-I-K-L-X):

    Congratulations, Larry, now everybody will want a piece of you. This is sort of like dangling a rabbit in front of a bunch of greyhounds.

    Yea, well I wish the guys that have run deep in the 10's would submit their timeslips, mods, etc., so I can move down the list out of sight. Curtis will eclipse that next trip out and there are at least 4-5 other cars that already have documented 10 second V's.

    Everything just seemed to come together yesterday....decent air, sticky track, lots of cooldown, Jesse's tune. The car makes less than 550rwhp on Jesse's dyno which has us both

    He thinks it's because I don't have heads (he says the vast majority of his customers that do a cam also do heads), I think it's the bone stock exhaust holding me back.

    Congrats Larry. You are a masterful driver to pull that time with the HP your running. I am chomping at the bit thinking of next month and another shot.
