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.

Nice rt for an old fart. I woulda bet redlight on next run as soon as i saw that .001 though lol. Did you get any video? Id like to see your wheelie now with that new stall. Congrates on the TQ Tad your my idol man. Wish you lived closer so i could see you run that thing. Good Luck to your daughter.

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.

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:
