The Car did great !! It really like the temps and fuel the fact that it was getting more fuel.

1st pass down the track set a new personal best for me and the car.. 5.98 114 mph
2nd pass was a 5.96 at 114 mph..
Ran 5.96's most of the night.. Dead on..
Then last pass of the night.. I had to Race my Buddy who got me into racing and who has won several championships out there .. We were racing for 1st and 2nd place money in No/E Quick class.
He had a 6.06 dialed in and I had a 5.95 dialed in because the temps dropped more..
We staged and I knew I had to have a really good light on him because he usually always cuts 515 or 530 lights all night long.. And.. I am horrible on the lights..
So.. we staged and once we took off.. I knew I cut a really close to perfect light.. I caught him and passed him and beat him to the light !! I was super excited !! Then about 100 yards from the ticket box.. I started to wonder... Did I break out ? Then I saw the yellow ticket..
I lost !! After looking at the ticket.. I red lighted.. I cut a 497 light.. I also broke out and ran a new personal best of 5.93 at 115 mph ..
So... He is still the Teacher and I am still the student..
We both went home with money in our pockets so that was cool.. Plus they had photographers out there and I got a couple of shot of the car.. and I had a new personal best.. So.... It was a good night for me..

New Personal best times... 5.93 at 115 mph and a 1.31 60ft..

Got both tires in the air !! That is way cool to me ! Car was launching nice !

Does this car have an anti roll bar?
Are you running a vacuum pump on the motor?
