Getting there - new personal best

I am getting there. Just got back from ETown - only 2 runs (had to do some work for the inlaws). What a day 45-50 degress - only problem was a cross wind of 10-15mph - made the top end a little interesting during one gust.

Best prior time 13.57 - done last fall. Now 13.364 @ 104.77 - but that was not the best part. 2nd run only 13.42 @ 105.17 - but that was with major wheel hop - that would have been a high 13.2 run if the hop didn't show up.

Street tires where @ 30psi, 3/8ths tank of 93 octane & spare in. Total race weight was 3926, RWTD Tune, Koni's out back, Shanner S1 TB, poly X member bushings, stock air box w/2nd hole & 300 KW HSV tube - thats it.

Incrementals where:

R/t -.038, .010
60ft - 2.057, 2.183
330ft - 5.697, 5.794
1/8th ET - 8.647, 8.729
1/8th mph - 83.36, 83.80
1000ft - 11.209, 11.276
1/4 ET - 13.364, 13.420
1/4 Mph - 104.77, 105.17

2004 Black, A4, (aka the Black Demon)
390ci AES low compression
PB 1.611, 11.732 @ 115.22, DA +1,973 @ 4,005 lbs
1.566, 11.585 @ 116.22, DA +960 @ 4,010 lbs (Nasty Headwind)
1.538, 11.352 @ 119.16, DA -2,340 @ 3,960 lbs

Thanks - now if I can only get those 60ft times down - this car will fly.

May try one more time this weekend. I want a 13.2 so bad!

very nice times. i tried for a 13.2 last week (and it was the LAST week of the year ) . i only got 2 - 13.44s. my best is a 13.38. i'm gonna have to get DRs to lay the power down to the ground. too much wheel hop without them. a buddy got a 13.0 with an '04 and DRs

Yeah - I think to get any better - DR's are going to be a must. It is just to hard to do on our stock tires (though mine are about worn out after 8K ) The 60ft time is the key.

Can't try this weekend - all of a sudden I have K/R gremlins. Must be bad gas - just filled up the tank the other day. So for the next few hours I am going to prowl the NJ highway system trying to burn off this bad load.
