Default Went to the track today

Couldn't get my 60' lower than 2.1xx, but my tires are bald out back, and my clutch smells bad..

Best Run:

RT: .610
60': 2.193
1/8 mile ET: 9.050
1/8 mile MPH: 80.868


2nd best run:

RT: .626
60': 2.192
1/8 mile ET: 9.062
1/8 mile MPH: 80.871

My best rt of the day was a .059, i was on it.. but I had a 2.330 60' which netted me a [email protected]

Highest MPH was 9.196 @ 81.013..

Hoping to make it to the dyno in the next day or so..

not bad you could almost pull maiden with that Get some rubber and a clutch and i am sure it will get better. Was this at the valley, ive heard that trakc is pretty slick esp compared to Hardinsburg, where i go most of the time.

1/8mi X 1.55 gives a pretty good estimate of 1/4mi times.

The 10.5 cars were keeping the track nice and clean.. They would launch their 4,5 and 6 second cars right before the street tire cars would go..

You should be able to get a 8.5 in there. My 01 had an 1.9 60ft on 205mm tires.
