I had to take the day off yesterday to take care of a house emergency. I decided to hit Atco in the afternoon as long as I was out. The skies were very dark so I knew it could be a 2 hr ride for nothing. Got there early and made one pass - 9.40 @ 147. I wasn't disappointed because I know that the car needs some heat in it to make a good pass.

Right before the second pass it began to drizzle just a bit and they held us up for about 30 minutes. I lost some of the heat from the turbos and pressure from my tires so I wasn't too hopeful. They finally let us go and I did a big burnout to get the tire pressure up and put some heat back into the turbos.

I launched and the car deadhooked. I cut a 1.34 60' and must've lifted the front about 5" :D Car tracked perfectly straight and I crossed the trapps in 9.05 @ 147 mph with a pretty quick 5.78 @ 121 mph in the 1/8.

I let the car coll down a bit and drove back to the staging lanes. But the rain returned and that was all she wrote. Sooooo close yet soooooo far away. This car is REALLY making me wait for that 8 second slip.

Thanks, guys. This was the best 60' I ever cut and, I have to admit, I got pinned into the seat pretty good. Great feeling, though. I'm racing in the Corvette Challenge tomorrow and it's supposed to be a cool morning so keep your fingers crossed for me.

Congrats Paul! I know your dying for the 8 second pass. You ran that 9.15 with seriously $h!tty air at Island last Saturday and horrible track prep. With the good air you'll get in Sept & Oct I wouldn't be suprised if you pull off a 8.8X pass!

Hey Paul, my car dead hooked once too! Only $3400 later it was fixed.....Way to go.

:rofl: :rofl: :rofl: That's a bargain. It used to cost me between 2 and 5 grand every time I broke last year. And I would break every 7 to 10 passes.
