I think I may have made a misleading post. The 1.58 was hooked up to the floor. It may have left at 2,500 foot braking but it was all out. It ran 10.70 three passes in a row. The last one was 125 mph.

I understand the MPH matches the ET. I don't understand how a 30" tall tire with 4.11 gears crossed the line at 6,800 RPM with only 126 mph.

The car weighed 3610 with driver at the time it was run. Unfortunately, besides the Engine Analyzer program I have it was never dynoed.
