    Nice times man!

    I've been 11.80's with only a 118.3mph and a 1.81 60', so you definatly have some 11.7's or better waiting for you with that 120 trap.

    Get yourself some DR's, but don't go too crazy on that poor little 10 bolt, and you should be able to cut a pretty safe 11.8x.

    Good luck

Chances are you'd pay more than the difference in prices just trying to get a problematic Moser sorted out......

    Thanks man. At least now I know what other high 11 cars are trapping. Nice 60 ft too man. Yeah I will have to try some drags to see if I can get mid 11's. I could tell by my 1/8 mile time that if I could hook well my et would drop a lot. My 1/8 was in the low 8's, should have been a lot better than that if I had some stickys.

    No problem

    You could probably run better than 11.7x with your power, but I wouldn't go pushing the launch that hard with the stocker rear. With a conservative launch you should be able to safely do an 11.7x.

    With a 12 bolt 11.5's should be within reach if not better.

    Good luck!

    Yeah that first 1/8 mile is killin me. The car feels like it wants to just take off, the front end comes up a little like the tires might lift, but they dont, it just spins and swerves. Cant wait to get some stickys, but it will be awhile because I just bought the Goodyear GS-D3's.

    Let me be the first Ford boy to chime in!!!

    Good times!!! Definitely a mid 11 is in your future if you get some sticky tires.

    What elevation is your track at? And I am curious to know what the weather was like on that run?

    Later friends,

    Track is very close to sea level in south jersey. Bad conditions that night, over 90 degrees and around 95% humidity. Definately not a good race night, but I was only there for a few days so I had to go regardless of weather. I know he would have been running a bit better in the cobra if it was nicer out that night.

    I corrected your timeslip and for the weather conditions you gave me. It corrects to 11.902 @123.396 MPH.

    You definitely have enough MPH for a low 11 if you can stick the launch!!

    For comparison my 2000 GT went 11.817 @ 119.237 MPH with a 1.72 60' on July 2nd at Sacramento raceway. Corrected for weather it would have been an 11.53 @ 122.854 MPH.

    You can see the difference a decent but not great 60' time will make!!

    Later friends,

    Well my friend with the cobra called me today, he ran an 11.91 @ 117 last night at atco. Warm and kinda humid. He let the car sit 2 hours with ice bags on the motor. He then pushed it to the line and started it and it was all the way cool. He also pulled a 1.83 60 ft. Pretty impressive. Well if I can hook to the track I think I can get around 11.5 sine I am trapping so high, I just need to get stickys. Ill have to try the letting the car cool off thing too next time.

    Hey brad, what are some good tracks in NY? I'm new to the area and everyone where I live says Englishtown is the closest. I don't care if it is small and not used much, in fact that's what I would prefer as this would be my first time on a track.

    e town may be the closest to you. I live way up by canade and ESTA in cicero is the closest to me. Do a search on yahoo for drag strips or something and you can find out where all the tracks are.

    I ran a 150 for two years. Just make sure you have enough fuel and all the safety devices.

    Well over I got about 7 bottles through the 150 and about 10 through a 75 shot, motor runs no different then before I installed the juice.

    One of the leading causes of damage to the rear end is surprisingly not hard launches, but doing donuts. It helps if you think about it, with a limited slip differential, the inner most wheel and mechanics are turning at a slower speed than the outer wheel, since it is covering a larger circumfrence. Cars are designed to do this, but the rapid revving of the motor/drive train, along with wheel speed that makes the rear end break loose and start swinging into oversteer, creating smoke and screaching, can really wear onyour rear end. This is not to say that hard launches don't damage the rearend, along with the clutch, transmission, and other points along the drivetrain that you are shocking with a hard launch.

    oh yeah, this is my first post, woot!
