According to my Kestrel 4000 weather meter the DA was great all day. It went from about 200-300 above during the early afternoon to about 200 feet below in the last hour or so.

Just for comparison there was a new black SRT8 Charger with the 392 Hemi (470 HP) there yesterday that had 30 day tags on it. It looked and sounded stock and looked like a lady was driving it. I saw it make two passes and it ran like a 12.61 and 12.63 at a little over 110 MPH's.
Thanks! I saw you guys. He has the 3.7 badge on his fender I think. Nice looking ride. If he posts any videos on you tube please send me the link.

Thanks man. I think some Weld rims and drag radials might be a smart choice since I don't want to void my warranty.

It's tough but making that monthly payment makes it easier to not spend more on mods. With my foxbody, the initial price was so cheap it was so easy to throw a few hundred at it here and there for fun.

If you get that 60 down a little bit, you will see a very high 12.
Yeah I was thinking about power braking it a little at the line to launch harder. I was just leaving off idle and flooring it. I don't think there was any wheelspin, if there was any I couldn't tell.
