    Seemed pretty good to me. Shifts could be a little bit faster but they weren't bad. What are your mods?

SRA. 6 point bar. through the floor subframe connectors. twin disc clutch. eibach drag springs. tubular k member GT brakes all around. N2MB 2-step The kirkey seat put me a little further from the shifter than I'm used to so i had a little more trouble shifting.

    That was a pretty solid pass, those shifts were solid. I'd say you need a miracle dead-hook pass or ice the intake more! I've seen those cars pick up stupid power from the full ice treatment, although I'm a fan of methanol.

    This is me driving my 2011 shelby at a 1/8mile track and at a 1/4 mile track in car. I'm not the best driver but I do power shift. You look to be just as fast as me imo. I would def keep my hand on the shifter the whole pass. It can be distracting reaching for the shifter each shift. You shouldn't need your other hand to steer the car. Keep at it.

    Also you can preload the shifter some before you shift I push and pull depending on the gear before I push in the clutch to shift this way you have no delay in the shift. Also what shifter do you have in your cobra?

    What size slicks and what air pressure? Stock 3.55 gears? I have had good look with around 12psi with all my cars using a full slicks 28" and 26" any less and it would spin to much.

    I think a 28" slick with 4.10s would improve your short times. Maybe drop a .10 in the 60. The larger slick will allow for a heavier launch and swapping to the 4.10s will keep your revs correct at the end of the track. What kind of icing strategies do you use at the track?

    Just circulate ice water through my intercooler. I go through at least one 7lb bag of ice per pass. Saturday wasn't too bad b/c it was only 50 degrees. But i do Ice the shit out of my car.

    lol it looks like you almost crapped your self on that run. But everything looked good to me. Shifts were good, your 60' time we great. Just keep trying.

    Haha the first run scared me more. I was expecting it to spin but it hooked hard! I was way more prepared for that pass haha.
