This is my frist pass during the Wild Street competition during the 2003 NMRA Finals in Bowling Green, KY. I ran with no prior test-n-tune time on a new coil over front suspension set-up, and it was also the first time out on slicks with my 11" sintered iron RAM race clutch. It took me till the third pass to figure out how to launch the car right. On this pass I only launched at 3000 RPM and it bogged real bad (almost can't tell on the video). It caused a crappy 1.75 sec 60 ft that killed my ET, which was only 11.3 sec. My MPH was there though at 126 in the quarter. That's good for 10.6's, which is right where the car should be in street trim (10 psi, pump gas, and street EEK calibration). I had only run the street pulleys, instead of my race pulleys for 18 psi, because my cage is not 9-sec legal yet. i.e. 6 pt. still, not a 10-pt.
