Car RAN AMAZINGLY FAST!! I will later due a better job with details of the run but 2 Months ago with Dinan Stage 2, I ran 12.9 sec with trap speed of about 107 mph.

Today: 6 Runs of 12.4, 12.3 12.2, 11.98, 11.90 and 11.76 !!!!!!
Trap speed were 117, 118, 119 and 120 mph!!!!

My last run was the best run, although it looked slow as I ran against a ZR1 vette. I trapped 120 mph and ran 11.76. 60Ft time was 1.94 sec. So again not running the popular 17" Kosei/MT wheel/tire set up that most of the top guys use so definitely can get lower times in the future ( I am done for this season as I want to end the year on a high note!).

Again I will do a better job of posting all of this, I have the time slips as well as video of all runs. I was launching in 1st gear for the first 3 but then started to do 2nd gear launches with much better results. My tires were at 28psi for all runs except the last run. For last run we set tires to 25psi and got the best hook (relatively speaking). I am so happy with the car and Jake's tunning and again will post better info at a later date.
