Yesterday the track was closed due to power outages caused by storms the previous day. Unfortunately oilburner came out here for nothing.
This morning they were open so I decided to go. It rained just before I arrived. I had to abort or let off on my first 3 passes. The 3rd pass I pedled and had a lousy 1.669 60'. The result was 10.69@131, so if I could get a clean pass in it wouldn't be half bad i figured. The sun came out and cars were running better. So I made a pass. From what I saw on the timers it looked good so I went again. It went quicker in the 1/8. The slow pass was a 10.436@132.76 . The second was 10.377@132.91. WOW
A little while later I did the same thing with similar results. Second pass was
10.377@132.76.
So try that again right.
Similar results again 1st pass was 10.401@132.1 and the hot lap was 10.373@132.90.
I gave it one more try. A 10.400@132.50 followed by
10. 416@132.35.
So pack up and go home the last few runs I felt the tires slip on launch.
Likely why I couldn't better my previous 1.50 60'
This might be it for this year. I have surpassed every goal I had by a bunch. It's been a great year with this silly car. Got to meet another bunch of great people. Some from here and others that are track regulars.
Hopefully I get to try again at DA like yesterday but if not I'm happy anyways.
I ran quicker than last weeks PB on 6 of my 11 passes today. LOL

Con grats and a good way out the door. Time to turn the heater on and rebuild. Good luck.

Holy shit, Jim - that's incredible. Too bad your record-breaking time slip is measured in ancient Roman cubits - so it'll never be recognized.

This is what I get for spending the day cleaning my garage, eh? They just salted the roads out my way, the cars are parked now, and depression is setting in. Time to hunker down, fellas - and dream of being like Jim.

Thanks bud. You know there are lots of not stock power comments. as well as dismissing the times as a stripped car. LMAO
Yet I have been asked why my car is so heavy by another Hellcat owner. the young guy in the Go Mango HC you saw at the track.
If no one else has done it then it cant be done right. even though the lime green HC with the cat on the side ran a similar time last year and was dismissed. I think I am the only one who brings his time up. LOL

Clearly it's all that carbon fiber you are hiding. Like we discussed: some cars are better than others from the factory, some cars are better driven than others, and rarely both occur.

You saw how consistent the car runs normally. The day we met the 1/8 mile times were all 7.0 except one 6.99 and one 7.01. Hell of a bracket car.;)

Jim are you worried about the 2020GT500s lining up beside you? I think not.

They'd have to leave the garage first.

You can’t handle the truth! Son, we live in a world that has walls. And those walls have to be guarded by men with fast timeslips. Who's gonna do it? You? You, Lt. Redeye? Jim has a greater responsibility than you can possibly fathom. You weep for Demons and you curse the Hellcats. You have that luxury. You have the luxury of not knowing what Jim knows: that the Demon’s death, while tragic, probably saved lives. And Jim's existence, while grotesque and incomprehensible to you, saves lives. You don’t want the truth because deep down in places you don’t talk about at parties you want Jim on that wall. You need Jim on that wall. We use words like honor, code, loyalty. We use these words as the backbone of a life spent defending something. You use them as a punch line. I have neither the time nor the inclination to explain myself to a man who rises and sleeps under the blanket of the very freedom that Jim provides, and then questions the manner in which Jim provides it! I would rather you just said ‘thank you’ and went on your way. Otherwise, I suggest you pick up a drag radial and stand a wheelie. Either way, Jim doesn’t give a damn what you think you are entitled to!
