We do a lot of trijicon work too.
ACOG scopes. A while back they brought in a bunch of guns for us to play with.


Oh and some EFR's.
Not sure what's going on with them though.

Made a few passes at the drag strip last night.

Like i said last time i went to the strip, this car is not built for straight line nonsense.

With that being said, it was holding it's own. I went with a few people i know. One being the guy with the cobra on the last page. He couldn't get his mustang into the 13's. It was kinda pathetic IMO.

Anyway, i beat an Audi R8.
And by beat, i mean i had a better ET and Trap speed.

I'm car 123.

That was my FTD. 13 flat @109.
I was reeling in that R8 like he was standing still, it was comical. I just ran out of real estate. Had plenty of gear left to go in 4th too, i raised my fuel cut to 8200. It seemed to benefit me.

I'm sure i could have cracked 12's easily if i did just a couple of many things different. Maybe just removing the jack and spare tire, taking a ****, launching better, shifting better, better tires, cooler temperatures. Ect. My FTD was my last run, i'm sure if i stayed till after the sun went down it would have gotten even better.

Somehow my 5 speed is still alive.

But i don't think i want much more power. I was already taking down pretty much every bolt on muscle car there. I was without a doubt the fastest car that a)has a 4 cylinder b)didn't get pushed back on a trailer at the end of the day and c)drove to work today.

This trip didn't come without bringing any problems though. Now the car won't idle... Well, it idles at like 1600rpm. Overrun is sometimes working. And it's popping a bit during shifts under hardish acceleration...
I didn't do any messing with the tune the entire time, it seemed pretty solid. Hopefully it's just a vacuum line, or something simple. If it's a tune issue i'm going to set fire to this MS.

So his real RT was 0.7857, damn that's slow. But that means you're practically a dead cow.

I'm getting at that drag racing time slips are funny, that they subtract the .500 from it.

Either they are subtracting the 0.500 from the RT on that slip or the dude in the audi redlit for having an RT below 0.500.

Nope because if that were true i would have red lighted on this pass where my RT was below .5

In fact the car i was running DID red light by .09 seconds.

Tracks stopped showing the tree reaction time a few years ago. A perfect tree is now 0.00 of what ever tree you are running on. A Sportsman tree or full tree is .500. A Pro tree (all the yellows come on at once) is .400.

If you look at Erat's time slips, you can see they have a + or - in front of the reaction time of both racers. His time was + over the .500 sportsman tree.

The tree reaction time is the time it takes for the green light to come on from when the last yellow light was lit.

I'm really curious to know how much my car was making last fall when I hit 12's pretty easily if you're on a built motor/more boost and still in the 13's. I guess our trap's are pretty much the same though.

I had a .01 faster 60', a 1mph slower trap, but did 12.83 ET

Can we race? lol
