Airborne for the first time, those MT Radial slicks are really sticky.

Wow, that's a lot of MPH for the 1/8th. A car MPH'ing over 100 in the 1/8 should be solidly in the high 10's. Congrats Johnny.
Looks like you are loosing considerable ET to tirespin or an off the line bogg or something. 'Typically' a 10 second car will 60 in the 1.4-1.5 range. With a little suspension tunning she is going to be flying!!!

You are so right Marv. Today i raised launch rpm from 3000 to 4000. My 60 foot dropped to 1.598 and ET 6.806 sec at 104 mph and about 5" of air under front tires.
Sad to say but i got a big red in second round this due to transbrake problems. Car rolled a little bit when reving against the transbrake dont no what happened.
Btw no tuning to suspension was done. Caltracks 1/2 turn preload and Hal shocks at 2 on both sides. There was NO tire spin the MT Radial 9x30" is the best tire i ever tried.

Hi Tuk Tuk,
Are you using Hal Shocks on the front? If so what did you have them set at. I have Hal all the way around and caltracks too. I'm going back to the track for the first time this next Friday night since I blew up my rear end. Did your car seem to porpoise any? Thanks for the help.

Im using CE 90/10 in front. Car launched straight and no porpoise that i could feel.
I do have a video of it but it isnt digital so i have no idea how to put in my puter.
Anybody know how to do this?
BTW found these pics on the internet today showing myself doing a burnout yesterday http://www.picturetrail.com/tuktuk
They are in the burnout map.
Am i overdoing it? My burnout is 7 sec long.

Tuk, that is one sweet car man.
My next project with my Z28 is to build a similar engine like yours.
