Ran the 1/8 again tonight!

This time for real, not launching at 2000RPM and babying the clutch like last week. Best run was actually a race between me and a 97 Thunderbird mark VIII with some mods and on 100 octane, I am on 91. He asked to run me because I was running about the same times he was, should have bet him (see below). Also ran a modded Fox body 5.0 on my 9.79 run where I trapped 80MPH. The last run, I put Richard's 17 inch SVT wheels. He was running 215/45 BFG street tires that should have run better than mine, but it was actually my slowest run. Got a 2.7 60' 9.978@79.60MPH Go figure.

Car is #5160
