Yes, but that variance could be attributed to all sorts of things...Temp and barometric pressure. Humidity. Track condition......NOW if the trend continues then your UPR upgrades may have made a difference.

Slowly but surely mine will get UPR products though. You can't beat those parts for the price!

Nice run!

It's also a set up for more power to come. Can't apply more power if you can't get it to the ground!

Also......if you have a relatively consistent car (consistent meaning no matter weather conditions) you know when things work.

it all has to do with weight reduction and allowing it to hook better

when i ran 7.24 it was at night low humidity and 78 degrees on a sat night track prep (the best they do)

tuesday night is the worst track prep they do and it dont help with all the street cars spinning their radials the temp was lo 80's and the humidity was out of this world cause it rained all day and the sun came out

nothing on the car was done other that what i said in orginal post
all shock settings the same

i have no doubt with better air on a better prepd track it will run faster or if i launch off transbrake

Couldn't have been the driver?

Having confidence and experience in a car YOU BUILT does wonders!

Lade makes a LOT of laps in that car. Since he is so consistent with it, he has texted me several times in the past to tell me when a small change netted hundredths of a second improvement. He's pretty perceptive with that stuff. It's fun working with customers who test like that.
