Congratulations David!

With a 108 trap speed, and the MPH you're picking up in the back half, you're making a lot more power than your ET indicates. Start working on your launching and watch your ET come down.

Check out http://www.intense-racing.com/suspension.doc for some tips on getting more power to the ground. It talks about wheelie bars that most people are not interested in, but it's the only place I've seen that explains the physics of weight transfer for FWD drag racing and includes some things you can do to help.

thank you everyone... im very excited about it.. i know i can definately get those times down a little further but im very happy with this for now.

my local track is insanely sucky, I ran 13.0 at IDD5 but couldnt hit better than 13.4 at New england dragway.... yesterday i was running spring blockers on the rear with 40psi in the tires and a set of nitto drags on stock rims in the front... it was my first time to run these tires so i think i can get a little better performance out of them with a little practace

thanks to everyone for all of your help and support :D
