Thumbs up

Ugh sorry again dude, it looked like it was going to be a stellar pass otherwise though.
You had some nice launches and I think a 10.2x (maybe even a 10.1x) was possible that day with a little more seat time.

Derek,
Broke the posi twice, broke 2 sets of 4:10's and 2 sets of 4.56's. This is the first Axle lol

Mark,
Who knows, it was good to get back into the car after a couple of years. In that time all I did was a few shake down passes to log the car. Was a good feeling to take the first pass, leave at idle as if I was on the street, and run an 11.2 @ 131.5mph lol Felt even better to dump the clutch at 6500rpm again.

It will be fixed when the tracks open up and I can dial the suspenssion in again to give me my 1.41 60's... maybe a 1.39 too

PS. So the funny thing is, I had all the time slips from that day in the back pocket of my jeans, and when I got home I said "I should take those out" Well, come Sunday, in the washing machine they went lol. D'OH!

33 spline axles...

they are the original 12-bolt axles from 2003. I would say they lived a tough life lol. Around 350-400 passes I would guess.

I wish I could afford a S60 or a nice light weight Fabbed-9" but alas, not in the cards. That's what sucks, for the money I spend rebuilding this 12-bolt every time it broke over the last 8 years, I could have had an awesome 9" but a few hundred dollars here and there is a lot easier to spend than $3K+ at once...

New setup is similar to old one, just a little bigger head, more cam, and more RPM, new trans and new clutch.
