6.369 or BUST! I don't know about the 5's but hey maybe!

* For those who may not realize running a 5.99 1/8 mile is the equivalent to running a 9.40 1/4 mile!!! :thumbup:

7.831@109, I was trying out the launch 2 step, and it bogged, then went like a bat outta hell. Only got the one pass then it started raining, :evil: :thumbsdown: Still, the 109 is better than the 107 when I went a 6.50, so the power is there, just need some practice getting it out. It was like a 2.831 60', 5.57 330', then the 7.831 660'. I'm quoting from slightlly fuzzy memory, cuz the time slip is in the car at the shop. :? 8)

Just looking at the 60' being so slow, dropping to a 1.60 60' would be a 6.418 based on the splits from the one run. It's definitely got 10.0's in it with more tuning and practice to go! :thumbup:
