I've never seen that many slow turbo cars in my life.
Gave up as the car was getting heat soaked and did not want to push. Out of 100+ cars only 2 cars made it into the 10's and I did a 11.2@126. Cars that were expecting high 10's with awd and forced induction were doing high 11's. They told me to come back in October when it's cooler. It was 96 degrees by 10pm and very humid.
Sorry guys, I tried.

First rain, then heat, how frustrating. Your next try will be in low temps and you'll be making lots of power, but the track will be slippery because it's so cold! Too bad Lions drag strip isn't around anymore. Nice moderate temps with usually cool moist ocean air, and much closer! Maybe you'll have some improvements to the car by then and dip farther into the 10s than you might have. Good luck.

By the time we got closer to home it was 60 degrees at 1am and the car pulled harder than ever before.

Wow, those are actually very impressive results given the conditions. Much respect for a valiant effort and I have no doubt your car will do 10's when it cools off.

I'm planning to try out Fontana drags tomorrow since word has it there will be no lines. Racing from 9am to 5pm, and the track is much more local. Early morning temps are only in the 70's. Wanna go? Would be interesting to see how our cars do relative to one another.

Sorry to hear about the mega positive DA . The outcome isn't too surprising since it sounds like you ran a similar setup this time. Would you mind posting the slip ? Lots of good info can be had even from non record runs !
Thanks

I haven't the slightest doubt that you will pop a 10, but no way in hot weather. I know I'm anal retentive, but in really don't lean on the car nearly as much in these Texas summers. In the winter, well, that's a different story...
