Got the car staged and waited for the Green light. Let the clutch out ever so softly, then stood on the gas pedal. Smoked the tires through first, shifted like a grandpa into second and tires spun again. Shifted into third then fourth very gently.

60' - 2.222
330' - 5.915
1/8 - 8.888
MPH - 83.71
1000' - 11.394
1/4 - 13.494
MPH - 110.11

Other runs were 13.560 @ 107.51, 13.574 @ 111.29.

Could have started out more aggressively, but wanted to take it easy on the diff. :nono:

60'-2.22?? did you stop and ask for directions?? :bouncy:

now 110mph is a good low 12 run. put some tires on her and let her go. but congrats on taking your v to the track.

Yep - I stopped on the way to pick up a soda.

- I'd like to have a better launch, but am afraid of taking out the differential. The current diff is very quiet and has no clunking. I don't speed shift and am very careful about avoiding wheel hop. My feeling is that wheel hop is what takes out the diffs by varying the pinion angle.
