Just curious, It looks like the little car hooks pretty good, what's the altitude of your race track?

You would not be the first to question the Monza’s performance trust me I don’t take it personal.
I was surprised my self at the first 2 passes of the year. My previous best was 10.02 made a converter change and some other small changes this winter
Car race weight 2800
Density altitude was 1376ft on this pass
60ft 1.4421
594ft 5.8929
1/8 et 6.3059
1/8 mph 108.94
¼ et 9.8305
¼ mph 139.44

Good job Joe. See you at the track in a few weeks.

except the D.A. was 7200'

And we were running a 498 BBC in a 2785# car . .
