Has impressive grip off the line! One question though, I know you had to lift but how come you crossed the line at 129? Thought you were well into the 140s last time?

Simply because I backed out once in 4th - the car was too unstable, infact scary!

I did a 132 terminal earlier in the day after missing 3rd (1/8 mile speed was 97 instead of the previous 112) which would indicate something like a 138 terminal on a good run - then the nitrous will bring it up to the early 140's.

Here is a vid of a slow mo, its great and you can see how bad the car steps on gear changes, just suspension setup really - we'll get there!

It was only the top speed where the car was unstable - have a close look a the vid and see how much suspension movement there is.... zero! Will be running on sunday with softer suspension and see how its going!

Dan, no worries at all - have you got it all sorted now?
