Are T-shirts okay these days, or do you still have to have a long-sleeved top?

My best was 13.4 @ 104.5mph.

Only did 4 runs though as I got bored of the massive queue! The car has a fair bit more in it, but it's nearly 2 years since I last took it down the strip, so I need to get dialled back in.

Robin did a 13.6 pass too.

Yoof didn't get as far as finishing setting up his new actuator properly, let alone running the gas - but think he still managed a 13.1. Could do with a quiet test n tune day to get his car setup really!

Bit disappointing today having to queue a good 90mins to get a run - couldn't keep any temp in the drag slicks which didn't help.

As Andy said I managed a 13.6 @ 102.9mph and like Andy i felt that there was more in the car. Did 4 runs in total and the last 3 runs came down by 0.1second per run.

I think I will try York next time.

Yeah the Que at the end was a joke! Only got 3 runs myself and a new PB of 14.2 at 99.2mph.

Hopefully will get some slicks for next time and i think i will easily get into the 13's.

Will upload some vid's as well.

Busy day!

13.1 @ 109mph backing out in 4th due to pinking, no gas and 20psi. 60ft times about 0.15 off 'best' which could be a combination of Quiff not Diff, and lack of track prep.

Only got 3 runs, might try Shakey next time  ;D
