My 2nd 1/8 mile race.

This time I was running my BFGoodrich Drag Radial tires and yesterday I just finished installing the Hotchkis Total Vehicle System suspension set. So I was hoping to run 8.0s, but checking the engine before the first start I discovered that the engine was not taking full gas. When I floored it the speeder cable could be moved 1-1.5 cm (about 1/2″) before the throttle blades were fully open!

I could not fully fix the problem. So running 8.2s was not that bad.

This was my first 1/8 mile race ever and it was a ton of fun.

I was running on BFGoodrich radial tires so traction was a major issue. I was hoping to run 8.5 sec. times and with my fastest run of 8.70 @ 145,3 km/t (90.3 mph) I came close. One bad thing about this event was the wait between the runs.

My friend, Jon Rocatis took the all the pictures at this event. You can see all of them at my flickr account.
