I couldnt believe it.
Was heal and toeing the brake in the butrnout. Revving till i saw smoke in the mirrors. I could feel the engine start to struggle as the tyres got grippy then came of the brake to let the car move forward from the bleaches still spinning.

Each time i gave the start more beans to overcome some bogging issues and the tyres loved it. I hardly get to full throttle and the 100 shot stage 1 in first so on the last run i cam e off the line and hit the 75shot stage 2 pushbtton. The 1.79 to 60 foot was a best as was the 11.24.

I have a max extreme to fit and will set it up to be activated by rpm rather than the WOT microswitch. I know i can get another tenth or more off my 60 foot with some fine tuning so 10's here i come.
All with a meagre 100 + 75 2 stage :D

Warning, posting after a drink can have misleading effects! Try and catch up next time Derek, big improvements still to come I would think, same as us, you need to listen to what the car says and give it what it wants! Only scratched the surface of a new combo to date.

Ive got one but havent had time to figure out how to fit it yet.
I have 2 seperate lines from the master cylinder to the front calipers and its tight for space. Maybe i can connect them into one line or maybe i will need another linelock. :? Need a free day to contemplate.

Out There!

138 in the eighth in a street car, totally awesome!!!

love Andy's car and Andy, hard to argue with that sort of car and that sort of balls to take it out in the rain! Totally a nice guy as well.

He also has a slingshot dragster with a blown Daimler and a LSR car he isn't talking about until it's ready!!!

If the most toys wins Andy has it covered,.
