Tonight at Eastside Speedway the car ran it's best ever MPH in the first time run running 141.8 MPH and a 4.99 to boot. And that with the car carrying 15 lbs of ballast in the nose.

Wound up being 1st round "duck" but that was expected as this was my first actual race this year. I was late and the car was early so I just decided to pack up and go home.

Maybe next week, hey! ;-)

Backed this up again last night at a test and tune session running 4.98 @ 141.2 on a fresh track prep. Then the s**t box street tire cars came and the track went to crap pretty quickly after that.

This run, like last week was with my single 1150 methanol carb. Previous best ET was 4.95 with that sheetmetal intake and dual 750s on methanol. That 4.95 run was also with the cam timing at 106*. It's at 110* now and from what I remember (CRS may apply here though) from the 2012 season I've lost about .02 in the short times from that cam timing change. May have to move that back for next season, hey!

Was basically a good night though as everything came home in one piece!
