Ah, may as well. It'll remind me to keep working on it. :mrgreen:

If there are any questions about the setup or whatever you want to know, ask away, and I'll use one of the reserved posts for answers, and also for room for me to keep lists of stuff I have trouble finding when I need it...

Another incremental best and some onboard vids.

Well, given the weather lately, cold and wet and heavy, and a warmfront that started today, last night was a great night to head to the track. We actually had negative DA's for the first time since I've been paying attention. Those were early in the morning, and late at night, but while we were there the DA was in the neighborhood of 200' or so.

So after having a LOT of trouble getting anything good to happen using Pops' drag radials, I went in street trim, and I tell you what: for my power, the Toyos at 27psi simply hook. They really seem to do all I need them to do. I had a couple of runs (one each, the last three times with them at the track) where there was NO noticeable wheelspin off the line. It's not like that every run, but I had never experienced that before this winter, and I have now, three different times...

So anyway, I made a new best on the first run of the night, and then beat it on the last run of the night. New best is [email protected] The 60' timer was busted (someone ran in to it apparently, earlier in the day), so I don't know what that time was.

Here are a few onboard videos for grins:

First run ([email protected]):

Second run, and couldn't get the tires to spin in the box, so they spun off the line. ([email protected]):

Fourth run, [email protected]:

Final run (and a new best - [email protected]):

I did 8 runs, and Anitta did another 4 - she hit 108 mph on one of them - that's a new best trap speed for this car ([email protected]).

Here's the slip:
