    the vid shows the 60's on the board, 1.70, not bad, but others are getting 1.5 and 1.6, either of those and i would have grabbed it. My only goal was 11.40@125.7 or better that day

    but ill be going for ET next time around

    LM, Your car clearly has the power to maybe dig into the 10's a little more then we think. imagine a 60" degree night extremely well prepped track and a 1.6xx 60ft hello maybe 10.950 to 10.850 Guys this man is trapping 127mph in 90+ degree weather.

    Running anything decent in this heat is quite a feat. Still waiting for you to launch with 18psi in those MTs Click here to enlarge

    My traps were always pretty consistent. Between hooking 1.6s or spinning 1.9+, I dont recall ever seeing more than a 1 mph variance and I attribute more of that swing to conditions. I dont see it being a substantial issue until we start really hooking, in that case id see what OBer has found comparing his 1.5s to runs where he spun.

    In this case your gunning to break an ET barrier, so who cares about MPH?

    i kinda do, im REALLY making power and pulling on the topend, which is where im making up a lot of time, so i dont want to be stuck with low 11 ET's and 120-124mph's... i do realize its all trial and error though, so we shall just have to see
