    Well . . . I was the number one qualifier in today's race. I cut a .004 light in qualifying.

    So, I got the bye run and cut a .001 light!! That's one THOUSANDTH of a second (for those of you who are decimally challenged).

    I ended up going out second round because I went .004 red :mad: But, I was all over the tree like stink on shit and walked away with the number one qualifier points as well as the two best lights I have ever cut. Not TOO bad of a day. 8)

    Oh . . . the car ran in the mid 10.30s because the DA was about 4500 and it was 95 degrees out.

    Thanks, Stevo.

    Yeah . . I thought I used up my redlight in qualifying. Here were all my lights:

    Qual:, .026 .004 .046 (red) Eliminations: .001 .004 (red)

    The car actually wasn't yanking the tires much, I think I have too much preload dialed in. The first 60 foot time was a 1.45 and then the track went away in the heat.

    I need nitrous . . . LOTS of nitrous!!! :dancing6:

    Thanks for the good luck wish to my daughter . . she's excited about the possibility of a Wally today.

    I'm crying out for SPRAY!!!!! lol. Thanks for the good luck wish. O0

    Nice going Tad. I've done some bracket racing and I know the nervousness when the tree is coming down. Your reaction times are absolutely amazing. Good luck to your daughter. A Wally is like an Academy Award. I hope she gets one and you too. Go git 'em.

    Yep. Even though I redlit, I still had three lights that were within 8 thousandths of a second of each other. So, I'm doing my job with the transbrake.

    Thanks, man. We'll see if I get in the nines with the gear change. But, I'm thinkin it's gonna take a touch of spray to get there.


    Of course . . I'll spray the bujesus out of it when I spray it . . . so I may just put it right into the 8s . .. :bunny3:
