But never good enough..

Went to T&T at Beech Bend tonight, got a late start but, I did get my goal that I had set for coupe when I built the motor. Ran a 12.50 @ 111.57 tonight, its amazing what you can do when finally have a sub 2.0 sec 60foot. Actually had a 1.82, but not on the good run, I missed 4th gear and still had a 12.62. The old T-5 is starting to show it wear or my hand/leg coordination gets worse as the night goes on.

New goal is 11.99, I thinks it capable, but will take some work and $$$.

Mike,

You've got the mph (hp) for a 11.99 run, but the manual tranny will get in your way. You'll need a 1.6- 60'er plus awesome shifts to get the job done, but it can be done. Been there and done that, but we cheated and did it with a built c-4.

Mike those are some great times.
11.99 would be a big step sound like to much fun.I dont see why you cant get there with what you have it's only half a second you need.

This is where it gets tough, I want to go quicker, but I don't want to lose the streetability of it. Meaning its not unusual for Beck and I to drive it 1000 miles in a weekend. Maybe instead of streetability I should have said reliability. I want my cake and eat it too....
