new personal best

Postby speedphreake » Wed Aug 14, 2013 6:51 am

Went to a nostalgia race last weekend. First time down the track since 2011. Made it to the finals and blew it with a .017 red light.
This weekend went back to do some testing. Went 10.091 @ 133.75. Fully street legal on pump gas. :dance:

i know you street drive that baby, thats probably why the 373 and overdrive, but i cant believe you get all that low ET with the 373s. dont understand that combo, but for sure it works well. lets see some 9s. good luck and stay safe art
