Think it was the second from the last run, you could really hear the turbo spool up.

Man that was nice.

What's the trick to get into the 10's? You know you can't stop at an 11.05.

Morning

All those passes were on the 11 lb pump gas street tune and got eight 11.0 and one 10.9 runs (no video of the 10.9, just a time slip). Thursday car had the 16 and 20 lb race tunes done on C16. We picked car up last night from tuners. Not been to track (raining last night) but with an extra 160 rwhp (680) and 200 rwtq (735) now, theoretically car is high 9s capable. Think the soonest we can get back to the track is next friday and we'll probably use the 16 lb tune and maybe 10.5-10.6. Get used to that for a while and then go to 20 lbs. Car is not certified for 9s anyway, so no point in rushing things. It's getting real exciting and scary in about equal measure...lol

Wow, you got that thing flying!!! Would be sweet to have a street car get in the 9`s! That Mustang must eat everything you come across.

Actually, there are some scary fast GTOs around these parts. Not seen any at the track yet this season, but I remember a couple from last year. You have to sit back and admire a car that can post some really impressive track numbers....and then transport 4 adults away from the track in luxury and comfort. I'd have to make 2 trips (lost rear seats for cage)...lol
