Nice to see some new faces there &some old one to ...Weather was pretty good!!!! I'm wondering if Dave from Cartek's Twin turbo Vette blew the stock rear or not.... I made my last pass at 10:15 Very happy then made it home in like an hour & 10 minutes Usually takes 1 1/2 ...Steven had tons of fun to.

How did the rest of you do?

hey bruce how did that last run turn out for you and of course the ear beating from the misses haha? I ran the left lane it seemed a little slick actually. And of course waiting three hours for my only run got me anxious and i blew it on the launch just a little too many RPMs got me hoppin a bit. So a three hour wait for a lousy time 2.29 60' grrr and only 13.6 If I just went about what I launched before I would have done much better. At least now I know what number to stay below to launch and I'll go from there. On a good note only one run so no beating on the car time to go back soon as we get another decent night. hehe.

The wife was okay this morning we had to wake up at 5:30!!!

I did pretty well ran a 12.2 with a 1.70 60ft @ 112 mph! I could have and should have launched the car a little harder I had a 2-3 hundred more RMP'S I should have went ...I may of been able to muster a 1.69 60ft. I was suprised I didn't run 12.1 but there was some humidity rolling in . Enjoy the car and Good luck!!&Keep practicing launching with your new pedders Suspension Set up You will do great!!! :burnout: :burnout:

Oh that's real nice buddy...I blow up my car and then you come down. But all kidding aside it really has been crowded there lately last Thursday, you know when I broke it for real I pulled into the staging lanes at 5:45 and did not run until 9:45. That late night air is really crazy you need a jacket after 9pm.

Hey you knew I can only stay away for so long...LOL. I guess I left at 10:25 or so Made it with stopping for gas at 11:40..Saved about 15-20 minutes then normal...Still a little bit of a haul but worth it.

I was hooking up real good to Should have given it a little more stall though

Lanse Just Let me know when you come up this way and we will try to hook up for lunch or something. When do you think eveything will be done to send out?

Hey Lanse...Sounds Good I'm up in Kenilworth on Mondays My Office is only 10 Min North from there. We have our sales meeting from 8:30 Am to-10:45-11:00 am I could meet you immediately after....I'm thinking if you take the Garden State PKWY to exit 136 straight up ramp turn left cross over Pkwy 1/4 mile there is a Sunoco gas Station Right the right side there. I can get you to Cartek its a little hard to find. Not far at all from there. Then we could get a bite to eat or something after and talk car stuff :gears: Gives me an excuse to check on things to :secret: :burnout:
