Raced yesterday for the first time after taking 70 lbs off the front of the car... Well, the weight reduction paid off.. Pulled a 1 foot wheelie foot-braking and got a new best 60' time!! I can smell 1.4x's. The DA was above 3000.. I'll definetely be deep in the 1.4x's in winter..

That's got to be an impressive show to watch as well as experience. Very Happy Nice going on the mods coming out as planned!

Cool! I'm hoping for some air time myself soon. Now the wait for cooler weather begins. Clay

The front comes still down too quickly.. It's all in the rear suspension.. My spring is too bouncy and forces the front down. I need a softer rear spring and dual adjustable shocks or bump stops.. The Moros Springs work a lot better than the stock Corvette springs. The 76 lbs weight reduction has really made a difference (Aerospace Brakes = 56 lbs weight saving, 11.5 lbs battery = 20 lbs weight saving)

I'm hoping for some 10.30's or 10.40's in cold weather.. Right now, I should be in the 10.70's in summer and I usually run 4 - 5 tenths faster in winter..

I was very surprised with the 1/8 mile ET.. My best 1/8 mile time in 3000+ DA was 6.92 so far... I think that I could make it into 10.70's with such 1/8 mile ET..

1.7 was pretty good since you forgot to do a burnout.
