I posted up a few weeks ago about knocking out a 10.6 my second time ever at the track. Well some seat time sure helps! At NMRA this past weekend i was able to run some 10.0s and 10.1s. So close to 9s! I hope to hit up a test n tune soon on a "cool" night to get it. Though the good air may be gone down here until November. Here's a few pics from the weekend.

Vid of the 10.15 run

Thomas-

Your car looks absolutely wicked with that wheel combination. You definitely have the mph and power to get into the high 9's, just keep practicing rowing the gears.

Congrats man on a impressive ET and MPH. I'm happy to see your car is holding up the HP since my Shelby will close to the same power soon. Hope you get into the 9s soon

What happened on the second slip? Did you shift a little slower? That probably would have been 9s if it ran like it did on the first run.

I just don't think some people realize how hard it is to drive a 9-10 sec car in the quarter. By drive I mean actually drive ( aka shifting)
Your car moves out. Congrats bud

Thanks everyone! I'm very happy with the looks and performance. Such a fun car.

I'm not really sure. My launch and shifts were pretty clean. Might have been the heat. The 10.0 slip was in better air but i didn't drive it as well.

Yes sir! I'll do a TnT soon either OSW or BMP. If i hit 9s, the 6060 is for sale :)

You should be roll racing, that's ALL Shelby guys do nowadays. :shrug:












Damn nice times!

Such a good looking GT-500, and congrats on some great runs. Like you said, you're SO close to 9s. You'll get there real soon. :rockon:

Thank you! Also, OP updated with vid. The other car is Scott Waters' 8 second Shelby. I had no chance lol. Fun run though.
