Now to Kaukauna’s crappy prepped track (closer for testing anyway and was a bracket 1/8 set up) 1st 3 back to back runs no nitrous just testing 60s, passes include:1.60 -1.53 sixty foots and best 1/8 @ 6.8 @ 100.99 mph.  Piss poor track keep in mind. 60’s at the groove were 1.49 NA. Got bored with bracket stuff and asked to switch to time runs, Nitrous on to a 10.018 @ 134.25 then raised rev limiter to 6800 and higher shift points to a 9.95 @135.05 with a 1.502 60 ft. Doing the math now sets that ET to a 9.80  on a quick book nitrous tune up @ 150hp.  Videoed runs show body collapsing over tire after initial hit. This car will run 9.5’s if we keep it easy!
