Ran a 10.47 in the 1/8th

This was the first time I ran at a track. Turbo Turtle and I went to George Ray's drag strip. You may have seen it on Horse Power TV if you watch it much. We got there early and lined up before they turned on the lights. He's on the left and I'm on the right. He couldn't get traction until 4th gear. It's hard to tell what happened at the end on the video, but I was actually slightly ahead of him at the end of the 1/8th. Right after that he went flying past me.

I decided to do one time trial to see what I would run and got a 10.47 @ 70. They only measure the E.T. there, so I don't know what my 60' is. The trap speed is according to my speedo, so it may be off a bit. I had a bit of wheel hop pretty much every time I launched.
