11 Second Club - Went 11.66 for the first time, how much more have I got ?

My car went 11.66 at 119 at Bristol Dragway. Bristol, Tn. It was about 75 I would say. I know I was wearing a black shirt and cooking. I had a set of ET streets and didn't adjust the suspension at all. Just pinion angle set at -2 I believe. I kept hitting the limiter at the top of 4th and the one pass I didn't I short shifted (tach said 6k but Its slow I've been hiting the limiter at 6500). I ran a 11.66 and a 11.70. Heres a time slip and hopefully I can get the video to work. Forgot to mention in this video I ran 12.1 missing third gear and hitting the limiter at the top of it.
Heres the link to the video. My pass starts at a 1:42.

Nice! Well if your hittin the limiter that's some time for sure. Weather was hotter than ideal. If you can get your 60' down to a 1.5x in good weather I could see 11.2 range.

you get that 60' down in the 1.5 range and you get some better weather you are looking between 11.0 and 11.2's. remember every 2 tenths in your 60' is 4 tenths in your time (roughly speaking) and with cooler weather pick up a mph or two and you will be right where i said.
Good runs by the way to man. Keep at it. You got sweet car

I was hitting the limiter at the top of 3rd. On the 11.66 pass I caught every gear but held 3rd to long and started bouncing for a second. Then on the 11.7 pass I actually trapped a mph higher but according to my tach I shifted at 6k. The tach is crazy slow when you get cranking. I've hit the limiter as low as 6400 before. I'm going to have to train myself to pay attention to a shift light. It was either stay in a gear to long and bounce or short shift it.

if you better your 60fts,every tenth in the 60ft is worth 2 tenth down track.maybe try a taller tire.

How much did the car make?

what gears? that mph indicates low 11s with a hook. get yourself a shiftlight and start adjusting that susp.

Raise your rev limiter to 6800 and your rpm shifts to at least 6600 or 6700. Problem solved and you will be posting another new best :).

It made 452 before my true duals and that was in a 98 degree dyno room. I didn't power shift it either. I think my mph will pick up slightly if I get my shifts. I've got 4.10s and I'm on a 26 10.5 16. I've got one of the Harlan shift lights in the a piller but for some reason I'm not paying attention to it. I don't think I have it angled exactly right but I've got a Tach now (yea I know corny) for it so hopefully I'll do a little better next time.
