Default My runs at the track tonight (short video)

Camera wanted to act stupid so only got 2 runs worth uploading.

Anyways,

1st run, 13.59 @ 102.97 with a 2.07 60'

2nd run, 13.59 @ 103.01 with a 2.07 60'

3rd run, 13.51 @ 103.21 with a 2.05 60'

4th run, 13.46 @ 103.71 with a 2.06 60'

5th run, 13.57 @ 102.95 with a 2.07 60'

I think track prep was less than great tonight, talked with others who felt the same. Especially on my first run I was spinning all the way down the track, which right after that run they prepped some more and it seemed to help some but I was hooking better last November in 40* temps. Think it's gonna be hard to beat last years best without that crisp cold fall air.

The duramax ran a 13.32 @ 101.80

Didnt sound like you were spinning. At least you were pretty consistent. That truck jumped out quickly. When I race that Titan he jumps out on me as well and then I have to reel him in. Maybe the track prep will be better next time

The runs in the video were a little later in the day. I had started shifting into second on my burnouts which seemed to help. What was happening was someone kept pulling water out of the box bad and I kept getting lined up in it and my tires wouldn't bite when I rolled out of my burnout so I started hitting the water at an odd angle where not too many guys where going which seemed to fix that issue

Close to it. I've got a magnapack catback, a k&n drop in filter which I don't really count as anything and a handheld tuner. And drag radials.


I have an eaton laying on the floor about 10' from me lol..... now if only the parts would randomly appear so I could put it on.


There was another guy out there with an 04 auto mach. he had ported heads from what he told me, and I could hear exhaust. he cut similar 60's to me but couldnt get his car out of the 13.7's-13.8's
