    Into the 9's

    Ran a best of 9.8 @ 137 on motor tonight off the foot brake. Track wasn't hooking and the trans brake was useless. Had to leave soft but managed a 1.4 60' Thanks to Pharro Performance, my friends but no thanks to all the douche bags making slow left hand turns on the way to the track.

    Badass car for sure. I think I saw you run (cecil county)? I thought colder weather wouldof got me a nine sec pass but it took an hour to make each pass and I was spinning bad off the line. I went 10.8@136. 2nd pass I developed boost leak in 4th gear and went 11.2@109.

    Sorry for jacking. Cars sick

    That's awesome man, if you can hook in the weather with the spray your deep into the 9's. Reading your previous build on the website, I assume its no 50 shot

    Congrats man, I've always loved your setup.

    Thanks guys..Bret I've always appreciated your advice man. Wouldn't be anywhere near these times without your help. Hi Po- I should be a little deeper into the 9's if I can hook and get a good launch off the trans brake. I wasn't even close to being in my power band in that vid. I'll be starting off on a 100 shot with the spray, want to make sure I do things right. We'll work up from there

    No problem - wish I could have helped more... It's been a rough couple years for me... but, things are about to be a lot better - our baby daughter will be here in the next couple days (Thursday at the latest). She was due last Friday, so we are kinda anxious and nervous, but all is going well... I've already been looking at Jr dragsters

    She is here! Lyla Grace was born on 11/10/10... Margaret's birthday! 7lbs 2oz, 19 inches

    She had a rough trip - she was in distress and Margaret had to have an emergency C-section - but they did a great job and got her out quickly and she is doing great now! She had to spend a couple days in the NICU, but she is out with us in the room now. Margaret is recovering well too and we will be home in a couple days...
