Thanks to all that replied to my "need to lose a tenth post" earlier this month. I ran steady 11's when I didnt slip off the line. Here's my best time slip.
60' 1.581
330' 4.732
1/8 [email protected]
1000' 9.814
1/4 [email protected]

I ran steady 11.93-.96 as the head wind picked up during the day.
I still have a bit of a traction problem out of the hole though! My 60's went from 1.61-1.63 to 1.58-1.59 when I put a very light preload on both traction bars. My next move is changing my 70/30 front shocks to 90/10 to see if that will help. Old best times in my signature.

Glad you got where you wanted to be without having to spend more money on HP.

Good job,

11.84 at 110 mph means it's launching well! Now a little more horses and......

Yes,I removed it and put on some 3" torque tubes. Its alot louder but its a very deep tone so its not so bad.
