1st pass @ 12:40pm = 12.60 @ 106.53 mph
60' = 1.79
DA = 1200'
Strong cross wind here today.
Hmm, I'm going to try the 'tune that got me a 12.28, for the next pass.
2nd pass @ 2:10pm = 12.64 @ 106.48
DA = 1321' which went up from the 1st pass.
60' = 1.84
Well that didn't work...
I put the slicks @ 11lbs @ 'boost-launched @ 10psi instead of my normal 5-6psi.
So the slicks are going back to 14lbs & back to 5-6psi launches...
I'm losing 2 tenths between 60'-330' ?? Not sticking ?? My 'Buggy' is pulling to the left between 60'-330' area, so maybe this track is not prepped good today ??
3rd pass @ 3:34pm = 12.60 @ 106.64
DA = 1413' , DA kept going up slightly during the day.
60' = 1.80
This was my last pass for the day as it was the 1st run during elimination, & i blew the tires off at the launch.
I did a beautiful smokey burnout to heat the slicks, & it spun off the line...
This didn't hurt my 60' time, but it hurt my reaction time.
I ran a 12.60 on a 12.55 dial in.
This is the 1st time that i've been to this track for maybe 15 years.
It's been thru a few owners, & was up for auction, before the present owner bought it.
It will probaby be another 15 years before I come back to this track, it sucks...
It goes uphill, & isn't prepped well...
But to be fair to this track, it's a decent track if you have rear wheel drive, it was 'hooking' well for them.
Wrong wheel drive just isn't meant for drag racing.
Even at my home track, if the 'prep' isn't right-on, I have some trouble going down the track.
It's amazing that a little 2.0 4 cylinder engine with slicks, can over power the race track...
I ran 3 tenths & 6mph off of my best times today...
The only thing that was 'normal' today was my 60' times, 1.79, 1.80 & 1.84.
My best run ever, of 12.28 last year, had a 1.76 60'.
