1st time at track

Ran my car for the 1st time at the '09 shootout, my best time was a [email protected] Car wasn't wasn't to good on motor so I sprayed it with a small shot. Once I get her tuned right I should be at least in the mid 11's.

I think it'll be pretty bad azz when I get it tuned right. A few have told me that 117mph is good for high 11's, I guess I need 120mph for low 11's, what do you think?

Here's a bunch more videos taken from the stands, gives you a little better perpective of the runs..... the last couple show Chris Wise's '94 sc dyno pull of 505 rwhp...............it's got a turbo instead of a supercharger, man it sounds nasty.......
