Default Video from the drag strip

Here's a short video from last night. It wasn't my best pass of the day, but a good one none the less.

Thanks. The video was the first pass that I made with the new clutch. A few passes later I ran a 11.5 @ 121, unfortunately I don't think anyone got that one on camera.

Thought it was you, but I wasn't sure. Had someone send me a link to the gay miata burnout thread so I joined up to follow it.

Kinda pissed I didn't make it. The down pour we had the night before made me think it'd be canceled, and then I set plans with the gf. She just watched the video and said "we coulda been there? We shoulda gone..."

Sucks you couldn't make it. Seriously, the look on everyone's face when the numbers came up on the screen after each dyno pull were priceless. My honda driving friend just couldn't get over it, four hours later he was still beating it to the videos. :P I think we have a convert.

You have a 6 speed correct? Stock rear gear? If you could have crossed the line in 4th your time would be so much nicer I would imagine. Still very impressive. Love the noises it makes

For some reason I had thought a 6 speed and 3.6 gear would be good for a 4th gear crossing. I guess I was also not planning to be as fast as you either. Slow down, problem solved
