Wouldn't rev past 6500 and went [email protected] 145. I'm pretty sure getting the rpm's up to 7400 it would be 9.0's maybe even better.
All said I'm happy with the results.
Mike,
What kind of 1/8 Times did you have?
Looks like The Headwork Picked you up.......!!!

Greg if I remember right on that 9.17 pass when it was missing I think it ran a 5.84 to the 1/8.

Went out yesterday. Had to use my buddies car(that's another story).
1st round had a .013 light had a problem getting the car to shift. Bought back in drew one of our really good racers he had a .009 light to my -.002. Damn red lights. Oh well see if I can get mine figured out for next week.

Default Just Friday at Edgewater in Cleaves Ohio

My girlfriend and I took her car done and she kicked butt. She got her best time a 10.93 at 123mph. We had a great time -there was plenty of racing and the weather was great.

Went to Indy Divisional race a couple weeks ago. Cold as hell and the track was slick as snot. Didn't get to much testing but we did get a point.
Heading to Topeka Kansas for the NHRA Summer Nationals next week.
I'm running A/S, Tim my oldest son is running C/S and our good friend Garrett is running S/ST.
Hope to at least have some fun and watch some great racing. Still chasing that first Wally. :lol:
