The day got cancelled due to rain, but I did manage to get in 3 of my 5 runs.

Video is neat, but car seems far from pulling the wheels as in the sig pic... also, sounds like the r's come up during launch (wheelspin), then drop bad, before they come back up, sounds too early to be a shift point... just wondering...Hanz

Hanz, This was this car's first time on a 1/4 mile track after changing suspension, and engine mods. Besides, it was only a 330' pass so I only got into second gear before I got out of it. Also it was my first time out in this car. The two 1/8th mile passes it did pull the wheels. I'll post those runs shortly. It was a blast. Very Happy

Nice video, get the burnout in it next time Wink What track is that? It looks a little narrow to me, might just be the angle though.

The burnout didn't come out as good as I would of liked. The track is New England Dragway in Epping, N.H. It is 60 ft wide, so I would say it's the angle. I still have to fine tune my burnout techniques. But you can put money on the fact that I will.

I was going to start another thread with this next clip, but I decided against it. This is the first of the two 1/8th mile passes. I won't post the time because it's pitiful.
