    Took my car to Great Lakes dragway last night. Weather was 54 degrees and it was raining lightly on and off but ther dried it when needed. DA was 800. Track prep was ok. The track seemed slippery past the 60 foot mark. I made a bunch of passes. Worst was 11.5 but my best was....

    Car is stock other than race fuel. Stock record is 10.0 or 10.1. I’ll never see that. This was as good as it gets on stock tires for me.

    One thing I wanna mention is it seems like the car unleashed its full fury once it was in 3rd gear and stable. Just screamed the second half of the track. Gotta be something with the computer recognizing it has full traction. Things nuts. Lol.

    Should have got a R8. I’m sure you find out why soon enough.

    can’t afford something that good or nice. Maybe I can sell one of my kids to make it happen.

    That's my home track! Good times. I plan on getting out in October and shooting for a single digit pass.

    Nice- Do you think the new wheels were worth a .tenth? Or at least a mph. Didn't you mention in another post you don't fully remove the T.C. - makes sense on a non D.R.

    32.4 mph on the back half is rolling out and not the norm on tvs cars- making steam on the top end.

    i think the computer goes full power once it senses no wheel spin. I really felt it and I even heard blower whine which I normally don’t!
