Current 1/4 mile world record fastest 6.7L?

We played around a little at the Las Vegas Speedway on Friday night. Made some decent passes, fuel only runs stuck around 14.5 the whole night. Then we added some giggle gas into the mix and cut a little time off. We had a little bit of a hard time with the launches, anything over about 8psi and all 4 tires would hop like crazy. I don't think the factory 20s are the best set-up for the track....

The transmission did NOT like the nitrous much, and would benefit A LOT from some shift adjustments. Top end pulled like a freight train as soon as the converter locked up. In time we will get it dialed in, but here is a quick video for now :

Yeah, we were having issues with boosted launches. If the boost is held too long at a stop it would do a "limp" mode situation. On that run in the video I had to let out of it to get out of limp mode, and re-brake boost it before I could go.

We think something in the transmission is causing this condition.
