New best ET @ SSHS 11

The Super Southern Heavyweight Shootout, 2011 edition in Atlanta, GA.

At first the car seemed consistent with 12.62 to 12.80, then a freak run at 12.550 @ 106.73. Before eliminations started, throwing out the worst and the best of the time trials resulted in a tight group of 12.7s. So I dialed in a 12.6 leaving a bit of a cushion.

Turns out the lunch break was a good cool-down and even though it was warmer, the car ran a 12.62 on the 12.6 dial but I lost the first round pretty much by the margin at the tree. No problem, 1st round buybacks were the rule and I gladly ponied up to stay in the competition.

There were quite a few cars in the Super Modified class and the rounds came quicker as the afternoon progressed. I had a pair of runs back to back where I was the "fast car" and lifted off the throttle running through the traps at 12.9 something. One round was a bye run. The car started to heat soak and I kept bumping the dial up and winning each round. On the semi-final round, I "pushed" the opponent out the door and forced him to a break-out with a 13.38 on his 13.42 dial.

When I came back around for the finals, I found myself matched to a 13.22 dial-in vs. my now 12.9 dial-in. Hmmm... I thought, he must be running the numbers to be dialing in to the hundredths. I had the thoughts of changing my dial... to a 13.22 to match his and forcing a "heads up" race.

Wish I would have. The opponent ran a 13.24 on his 13.22 dial with a 0.086 light against my 13.07 on a 12.9 dial with a paltry 0.131 light. He won the Super Modified class and I settled for the runner-up trophy.

Sixty foot times were mostly 1.7s with a best of 1.668.

Awesome Sixties! Congrats to you. The new setup is running like a champ.

You really know how to run the numbers yourself.

You should come down to Rockingham and Fayetteville and run with us after Thanksgiving. It would be great to see you again and I know you'd love to get a few more runs in before the end of the year.

Mods? Yea, I got mods ...

Besides an early morning 1st 60' of 1.8 with some spinning on the cold track, the rest ranged from 1.774 to the best of 1.668.

Thats awesome man. 1.66 is no joke at all for a full weight N/A mark 8.

I guess I shouldn't respond so late at night. My reading skills go to crap.

Two outings with the car this year, one 2nd runner-up and then runner-up.

Maybe the third time's a charm? LOL

Great Job JP!

Congratulations!

Hopefully you'll have some updated tunes for that "Bad Lincoln" for this coming weekend so you can tweak it even further.

I expect there is considerably more in it once you get it all sorted and dialed in.

See you Saturday!!!
