As an example - I've personally run a 12.2 @ 120mph with a 2.2 60' the same night I ran an 11.4 @ 128mph with a 1.8 60'. Now neither of the 60's were great considering track prep was poor, but I picked up 8mph with a better 60' alone. Of course, this is an extreme example, but an example at that.

Hope this helps clarify things. The OP is in touch with the Bama Team currently, so they're make any tweaks or adjustments needed too. We're just waiting on a datalog and we can move forward from there!

Spinning off the line can artificially inflate your mph down on the other end. Trap speed can be deceiving.
