Re: 6.17; 118.4 mph

thats 1/8th mile right? what does that translate into for 1/4?

if you can't convince them, confuse them.

Re: 6.17; 118.4 mph

good run, you keep practicing and you`ll pass me up . We are done for the year here next Sat. 6.17 is probably compatable to a 9.40 at that speed in the 1/8th

That was first run out of the trailer. Then it all went to poop as my airshifter top bolt in the frame decided to start working loose again and so it wouldnt shift. Need to fix it this week since our Big 1/4 event is this weekend in Rockingham, NC. I think I'll ride both ProET and Street.

I was thinking in the high 9.40's-low 9.50's. I'll be putting a new tire on this week also, so not sure if that will help or hurt my times.....may help my long time, but 60' I'm not sure as my tire now is almost like a 5 inch flat slick in the middle. Thats how square the tire is right now from just about all track miles on that tire.

I have a couple grudge runs with my co-riders. One guy has 2-busas, a 1397 kit and a stock motor with both having a 40 shot on them, and both with auto-shift, (which I think I will invest in this winter)...he ran a 8.98 last night on his 1300 stock motor!!!! 8.50's-8.60's on his 1397 motor. His best was low 9's until he put the auto shift on it. He has to give me the break and he can't use nitrous, but I can. We'll see.

You`ll get 6.0`s when you start hitting 122-125 mph in the 1/8th. My best 1/8th mile is 6.02 at 123mph and that 1/4`s in the 9.20`s. We had an auto shift before you can hook it up to your shift minder instead of a shift light and it will shift for you. Just watch out you spin the tire and it will shift and possably bog down the motor when it does hook up, we didn`t like it so we changed back to the light.
