I have been to the great track at Mason-Dixon.

I have passed the right of burning rubber and survived the test of the extraordinary God of Wheel Hop.

My name shall now be....

Wach'a'ancho'tpto-eeeny,potrungizzy mai boguntupto...

Which in the language of my ancient forebears means, "DRIVES LIKE ****"

You may call me Wacha-Eeny Not. :hail: :hail: :hail:

My best time for the day came when I left at 1800 rpm. The car bogged so I have to get used to launching at around 2 - 2500 rpm. I'm just not good enough with the manual, yet.

My reaction time was embarassing (1.22)

My 60' was 2.337 (down from 2.6 so thats a bonus)

The 1 - 2 shift was horrible. I mean I nailed it, but the wheel hop was scary, and I know that slowed my times as well.

Here's the breakdown:

R/T: 1.217
60' : 2.337
330: 6.404
1/8: 9.710 (75.28)
1000: 12.485
1/4: 14.817
MPH: 69.85

A hell of a difference from the 12.9 at 106.5 I ran with the Trans-Am.

I did notice that my reaction time was worth a good 1-1/2 tenth and 1 mph when I dropped from 1.5 to 1.22

I figure if I can get my reaction to even a .7 and my 60' down around 2.00 even, I SHOULD break 100 with a high 13.

But I am not going to drag the car again until I get the wheel hop under control.

Reaction time has nothing do with your 1/4 mile time. Only matters when bracket racing.

Well, in that case, I'm actually a kick ass driver. Except for the first and last runs, all my times were within a couple of tenths of each other.

You may begin bowing to me again.
