Well after a long break, I finaly got the car down the Bremerton 1320. Drove the car 1 hour to the track, and 1 hour back. Only got to make 3 runs do to weather going bad at the end. Didnt have one single issue with the car, and I'm all wet in the pants after today

Setup for all three runs:

4 year old Nitto DR's @ 16 PSI tire pressure
92 Octane gas
13 PSI boost
launching at 2000 RPM's, and quick shifting out of first due to traction issues.

1st Run:
R/T--- .671
60--- 2.198
330--- 5.284
1/8--- 7.727
MPH--- 101.04
1000--- 9.792
1/4--- 11.510
MPH--- 132.98

2nd Run:
R/T--- .642
60--- 2.303
330--- 5.398
1/8--- 7.832
MPH--- 101.75
1000--- 9.914
1/4--- 11.652
MPH--- 130.62

3rd Run
R/T--- .366
60--- 2.157
330--- 5.268
1/8--- 7.689
MPH--- 102.55
1000--- 9.745
1/4--- 11.460
MPH--- 131.21

Going to try and find some good tires, so I can try and get the pump gas tune into the 10's, then I will change to the C16 tune and really see what the car has.

Had an awesome time. Will post video's of the last 2 runs as soon as I can.

I really wish I had a fast car...but is that really true with the 13.99 for a vert??.....If that is the case and I use my nitrous at the track I will probably need a roll cage then
