If it was only a Ford...

My OT car went 9.122 @ 153.81 MPH tonight with Pat at the wheel. Had the
front wheels in the air for about 200 feet:) I got a real case of attitude
right now!

This one's not powered by Ford? I've gotten confused with the combos.

Sounds awesome anyway. That'll definitely get the venom-aline pumping!

Here is the time slip:

60' 1.278
330' 3.773
1/8 5.831 @ 116.67
1000' 7.612
1/4 9.122 @ 153.81

Analyze that:)

OK, I'd say you had several issues as a kid, among them having to
wear a bow tie to Sunday Services.

How'd I do?

You were a little off. Catholic Sunday Services:) Got to tell you I never
expected this combo to run that fast. I wish everyone could experience the
trip down the strip. Real adrenalin rush.

Cool. Hey, note this was just .07 off the 1.56 factor I brought up
last week, between 1/8 and 1/4-mile times. Since then, in perusing the
Webside stuff, I found racers using 1.57. So much for all that
complicated mathematics.

Re: If it was only a Ford...

The 1.57 to 1.56 surprisingly enough is about what I ran last year
comparing 1/8 to my actual 1/4's. It defiantly puts 1/8 times right in
the 1/4 ballpark!
