I put 4 passes on the car on Saturday night... Best run was 13.87 at 99.6 mph... I was hoping for more, but it was late at night and the track wasn't hooking up too swell. I wanted to just do a test and tune, but ended up engrossed in a bunch of street racers... must have been 150 cars there. I don't remember the first guy I lined up against, he cut like a 1.30 light to my 0.605, so I never saw him, but the next two guys I do remember, a 66' GTO, 4spd, 355 CID, beat him by over a second, and he had me by 0.300 at the tree... The next guy had a new Corvette, he also cut a bad light, ran around 15.0, beat him bad. The last guy I could have beaten, he beat me at the tree by 0.200 or so, but by that time it was 2:30 AM so I was glad to load up and go home. It was a Malibu of mid eighties vintage... fast car, very fast 60' time, but only ran like 89 mph top end, he must be geared lower than me...
