Smile 10.69 on the 1/8

hey all i just got back from the 1/8 mile strip here in town this is only like second time i have gone and iwas just wondering if that is a good time. i was getting reation time at about.100 most of the night there were the ones that were lower and higher but tat would be about the average. I would say that my car did quite well i was keeping up with several of the Mustangs that were there. so if you could jsut let me know what a good time is and let me know what you can get it would be cool.

Just to let you know reaction time doesn't affect your time.

Do you remember your trap speed?

Well if your running 67mph than your times are right around where they should be, maybe a little slow. But I'm thinking your SVT should be into the 70's easy.

I've got 40 timeslips that I can find (there's probably another 10-15 more somewhere). Some of the runs are slower than 10.69, most are quicker. If you've got a good track, you should have room for improvement.

My best 1/8 mph was 71.84mph.

I've been shifting right at redline, but I'm going to try shifting at 6k and 7k on Sunday and see if I get any gains.

Good luck tonight!
