Had some fun this weekend, although I didn't get my 5.99, I spent the majority of the time trying to tame down the wheelie. 40 pounds on the nose did the trick. Pickup .02 in the sixty. Cars best was a 1.33 and before I got a handle on the wheelies and had the nerve to stay in it, a couple 1.44s

To keep the wheelie tamed down off the transbrake, I got that front end really limited. If I loosened up the shocks, it would pulled them alot better off the footbrake. What amazed me is how well it worked, I got 5 slips in a row off the footbrake that varied .005. Car ran within .03 off the footbrake vs the transbrake. But as you can tell it likes the transbrake a bunch. Plus its alot more fun to carry them out 60-70 feet. \:D/

Best I got was a 6.19, I will be running it again in the beginning a February. Just looking at the numbers, car was running off for the air. I think I figured out what was going on so I will find out in a couple of weeks. Still trying to figure out what the car wants for 113, so i am playing with the car a bit. Had some issues with fuel pressure but I think I got that handled now.

Thanks for the interest.
