First trip to to the track

I have never been drag racing before......

I had a total blast and achieved some goals...

1. Bring the car home still running
2. Not embarass myself
3. 60 ft times under 2.0

And most of enjoy the car and have fun!

Best 60 ft - 1.68

Best Run -
60 ft 1.71
1/8 8.04 @ 87.33
1/4 12.56 @ 110.59

Worst run -
60 ft 1.84
1/8 8.28 @ 86.97
1/4 12.78 @ 110.13


The car ran within 2.2 tenths of its best time all night - I enjoyed the consistency but wish it was a bit quicker...

I will change some parts around and go do it again - I think with a few tweaks the current setup has 11's in it for sure.

Very well done for your first time ever at the strip!!! Only practice and time will tell if the car has an 11 in it. If you can pick up another couple mph and knock a couple tenths off the short time you'll be knockin on the door.
