Hi Son
have you considered fitting the spare box with the transbrake in and trying that with a more gentle hit on the nitrous, maybe get it to start the nitrous at 30% 1/4 second after you let the transbrake off and ramp it in over the next second and a half or so, I think you could see another .15 or so that way, maybe with a looser torque converter of stall around 3,200 to 3,800 could see another .1 off. I think there is at lease another quarter second to be had without adding any more nitrous, just ballancing the power against the grip available. It certainly seems to be quickest when it looks the least dramatic. :? The zoomies in bigger diamiter pipe could be worth a bit aswell.
Best regards
Mike

You can say that again Alan :)
I'm hoping that a 9.7 will come along by the end of the year. but there is another problem looming on the horizon with the car again.... I'm just a knats away from 140mph and its getting light up the top end like it did a couple of years ago at 100mph when I removed the fuel tank from underneath. The solution was to pull off the read valence and cut away what I could to let air out. There is more metal under the rear deck to remove so I'll do that this week. The 9.95 @ 138mph was the run I had to back out of just under the gantry as I was drifting hard right to within 5 feet of the wall.
On the 9.81 pass the wind had dropped off a bit but it was still wanting to go right.

That will get your attention, then again that body shape was never meant to go that fast. Aerodynamics not a strong suit for me but someone will have a fix.
