Thanks!! I'm really happy that I found the problem.. I was already at the point that I was going to consult a mechanic.. I usually do all my own work..

Congratulations!!
It's tough going rounds and to get a .153 0n a .15 dial in is superb. What are your 60 foot times?

That's a nice looking car you have.

The 60' time on that pass was 1.589..
The 60' times went downhill after that pass... I spun a little on my following passes and my 60' times were only 1.60 - 1.64.
My best 60' time of the day was 1.580.. That's 5 hundreds slower than my best 60' time... Don't know why my 60' times weren't too good on Saturday... However, I'm more concerned about the ET's being consistent Very Happy

As my 60' times got worse, I dialed up.. In the final, I dialed 11.21 and ran 11.24 on the brakes.. Unfortunately, I stepped a little bit too much on the brakes and lost by .01
