Bad trip at the track, but got some experience
Went to the track last night and got two runs in. This is only my 2nd and 3rd runs ever, so I was very nervous lol.
I'll start by saying that it was very hot, and on top of the heat, upper 80s, I was required to buy and wear a fire jacket. So I was baking in my car, and my hands were sweating from the heat/nervousness.
First run I didn't launch or anything, took off pretty normally, didn't want to spin and I didn't. Scared of spinning I didn't go too crazy in first and a little of second. Then missed 3rd lol.
2nd run much of the same, except missed 2nd lol. Similar time, but a higher trap.
I just have to get out there more and dont get too nervous. From what you guys see what do you think my car could run on street tires with say a 2.0 60'?

With a 111 trap speed you could go 12.7-13.1 depending on the track and conditions.

Why did you have to buy a fire jacket? Your trap speeds are no where near the speeds that require a fire jacket. Being you run faster than 13.99 you didn't even need to wear a helmet.
