First visit to the track this year

I hit the TNT last night at VMP, temps were ok but the DA was 1700 ft. I was rusty to say the least but managed to run 11.70, 11.67, 11.51 and 11.48. 60 fts. were 1.66, 1.61, 1.60 and 1.58 on those runs. It felt good to go down the track again, next time will be Fun Ford Weekend in a couple of weeks.

Weighed the car at the track, it's now 3600 lbs. Between the new fuel system and shorter exhaust I lost 60 lbs. I'll lose a few more lbs. when I get the fiberglass cowl hood repaired and on.

Good Job Keith. Thats awesome for the conditions and the first outings of the year.

Looks like it got progressively quicker as the night went on. Seat time and DA probably dropping some too!

I'm Sure it'll do much better come fall.

Congrats Keith. Great opening to the year. Very good times.

You've got that car dialed in really well.

Give 'em hell at Fun Ford Weekend for us. Get some video too if you can. I'd love to see your runs.
